Catawba Baler & Equipment (CB&E) has introduced the market’s only two-ram baler that quickly and safely ejects jammed recycle material from the charge chamber without manually digging out the material. Unlike other baler designs that inconsistently attempt to eject an oversized bale at the wire tier, CB&E’s new Gold Rush Series 12/9 two-ram baler with optional Free Jam technology replaces the “gathering wall” of a conventional baler with a patent pending jam-release system. This gives operators push-button control from the tower over the Free Jam release door to clear jams in a matter of minutes, not days.
“Recycling facilities operating conventional two-ram balers know all-too-well the time and danger associated with manually clearing a jam in the charge chamber,” mentions Mark McDonald, president of CB&E. “Our optional Free Jam system on our Gold Rush Series baler is all about operator safety. It virtually eliminates the need for a person to enter the baler to manually clear a jam. Operating a conventional two-ram baler without push-button jam-release technology is like purchasing a new car today without airbags. ”
