  • Like the cardboard baler at work!
    Fill it with your flattened cardboard boxes, heave the door down, then push the button to compress it all.

  • A baler is a piece of farm machinery that is used to compress a cut and raked crop (such as hay or straw) into bales and bind the bales with twine. There are several different types of balers that are commonly used. Balers are also used in the material recycling facilities, primarily for baling plastic, paper or cardboard for transport to a recycling facility.
