  Solar Powered Power Unit.
 

Solar powered power units can be used on several products including the Vert-I-PackĀ®,Self-Contained Compactors, and Stationary Compactors up to 10 HP.

 
  • Solar panels for up to 100% of power requirements*
  • DC powered hydraulics
  • Performance is comparable to 10 HP
    power units on SC models
  • No three phase power required
  • Environmentally friendly biodegradable
    hydraulic fluid
    120 VAC backup charger used to charge batteries whenneeded
  5 HP High Efficiency -Variable Displacement Power Unit
  The 5 HP high efficiency power unit will help control costs while full compaction force remains. The submerged power unit reducesfluid leakage potential and dramatically decreases noise during operation.
 
  • 5 HP energy efficient unit with submerged variable displacement pump
  • Environmentally friendly biodegradable
    hydraulic fluid
  • Offers speed and performance comparable
    to 10 HP units while using 50% less
    power
  Enviornmentally Friendly Products
 

Marathon Equipment is aware of global sustainability and environmental impact with regards to our products. With each new product we have made measurable strides in reducing energy and fuel consumption while continuing to offer superior compaction for maximum payloads. Marathon sets the standard with GreenBuiltTM product options.

  Cushioned Ground Rollers

Cushioned ground rollers are available on any self-contained compactor with the GreenBuilt option package.

 
  • Rollers reduce noise during pick-ups/dropoffs and lessen wear on the pad, there by extending its lifespan.

This major retailer is one of the first to adopt a "green"policy that included compaction equipment. This installationfeatures a RJ-100 SC with a Solar Powered Power Unit and Cushioned Ground Rollers.
  Vertical Baler
  Aside from the environmental impact of recycling, the GreenBuilt Vertical baler also features...

 
  • 5 HP energy efficient unit with submerged variable displacement pump.
  • Environmentally friendly biodegradable hydraulic fluid.
  This GreenBuiltTM 5 HP high efficiency submerged power unit runs a RamJet 3 cubic yard TANKĀ® located at a manufacturing facility. It provides the same speed and performance as its 10 HP predecessor.
  Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil
Biodegradable all season oil can be used in many of Marathon's power units.

 
  • Environmentally friendly.
  • No expensive toxic waste clean-up fees if accidental spillage occurs.
  This solar powered power unit runs a Vert-I-Pack (VIP) at anational fast food restaurant. The solar energy is used to recharge two premium deep cycle batteries.
   
 
  • THE AVERAGE APARTMENT DUMPSTER HOLDS 1.616 GALLONS OF LOOSE WASTE.
  • THIS MEANS THAT IF IT REQUIRES TO BE DUMPTED AT LEAST 3 TIMES A WEEK, IT IS THE EQUIVALENT OF 10 TIMES A MONTH.
  • THIS IS A TOTAL WASTE COLLECTION OF APPROX IMATELY 16,160 GALLONS OF WASTE PER MONTH
  • SOME ISSUES RELATED TO UNSECURED DUMSTERS ARE OBVIOUS; VAGRANTS, HEALTH HAZARDS - LACK OF TENANT CONTROL/INITIATIVE

  • A typical compactor will compact at a ration of 20:1
  • This means that it will compact 32,320 gallons of loose waste when compared to the dumpster (20 hauls of the dumpster)
  • This means that the compactor is hauled far less frequently.
  • Compactors may cost more initially, but long term savings are obvious.
