Manufactured For A Market Niche
Small recycling balers are specified and used by somewhat of a niche industry market. These 30″ balers provide business owners with long lasting solutions to common waste and recycling pain points. When used in the right applications, these small recycling machines can help to convert waste expenses into recycling revenue. They are often used in apartment buildings, office buildings, small retail locations, by liquor boards, and more. Anywhere that space is limited, there is a smaller size and volume of product, and baling efficiency in producing, ejecting, and transporting the bale is a must.
Some of the common reasons small recycling balers are preferred over other models and sizes of balers include:
- Lack of operational space: Harmony’s small balers require 21 and 23 square feet for operation and have an overall height of 88″ and 96″. This allows them to be fully used in the tightest of spaces in stockrooms and back room areas.
- Location of recycling operations: Most recycling happens in backrooms or areas on or below street level. It is not always feasible to get balers into these locations, especially in older buildings. With the cylinders dropped, small recycling balers can be moved in and out of rolled doors and freight elevators. They are also light enough to be moved around by a pallet jack.
- Availability of electrical configuration: Some small recycling balers are able to be operated using a variety of electrical configurations, including three phase or single phase applications. This makes them more desirable due to their versatility.
- Manageable bale weights and sizes: The bale weights and sizes produced by small recycling balers allow them to be ejected easily onto a pallet jack and maneuvered around tight spaces to be stored, or loaded up neatly for transport.
- Demand for efficiency: Small recycling balers are extremely efficient, requiring less power consumption, utilize faster cycle times, and require less time to make a complete and tie off a bale.
- Budget Constraints: Small recycling balers are budget-friendly options that allow business to recycle without a significant capital expenditure. Leasing and rental options make it even easier for people to get the equipment they need.
In addition to these reasons, like all recycling balers, they reduce disposal and hauling costs, save labor and time, improve workplace safety and appearance, reduce fire, odor, and vermin hazards, and are safe and easy to use. In short, small recycling balers help to make businesses more profitable!
Harmony’s Small Recycling Balers
If you look closely at the competition, not many baler manufacturers offer small recycling machines like those mentioned above, and few, if any, have the decades of experience, product development and enhancements, safety records, and customer success with these machines as Harmony Enterprises.
Harmony offers two 30″ small recycling balers, the M30STD (Standard) and the M30HD (Heavy Duty). While both check all of the boxes that solve the issues faced by business owners in this niche market, there are some differences between them that will help you decide which small recycling baler is right for you. You will notice faster cycle time and smaller operational and bale size/weight with the M30STD and a more robust hydraulic cylinder, more dense bales, and large bale weights with the M30HD. Plus, the heavy duty nature of the M30HD allows it to manage a wider variety of recyclable commodities.
