LFA 500 – Large Vertical Baler – Mill Size


The LFA 500 is a large range vertical baler that creates bales up to 450kgs 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. 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 and paper but it can also bale other materials. In the mill size bale format, you typically receive better rebates for material.
