LFA 500 HD – Large Vertical Baler – Mill Size – Heavy Duty


The LFA 500 HD is the largest range vertical baler that creates bales up to 500kgs in weight (mill size). This baler has an auto eject feature, the operator presses two buttons on the control panel and the bales roll out of the baler. It has an extra wide feed aperture at 1560mm and also has a quick cycle time of 32 seconds. Bales are often tied with 4 lengths of baling wire but it can take strapping as well. It is an ideal machine for large quantities of material. The most common types of materials baled are cardboard, plastic film, dry waste and paper but it can also bale other materials. The heavy duty version is often specified for ridged plastics due to its solid manufacturing with reinforced hinges and thicker metal frame. You can tie off foam and ridged plastic bales using 6 lengths of wire if required.

A lift up door is also fitted creating faster feeding speeds.
