“I began canvassing all the leading recycling equipment catalogs, considering super sacks, roll offs and can flatteners. These products just didn’t seem to make much sense. The closest solution was a baler or densifier. However, both of these machines are designed to deal with more product than a small operator generates. Furthermore, they are priced in the $40,000 and higher range. As the owner of a small recycling center, affording these pieces of equipment was just way out of reach.
Move forward 6 years to 1999. I have just discovered TSI’s TC 700 Baler [The TC-700 was manufactured from June 1992 to the introduction of the higher powered TC-710 in December 2002]. Priced less than a quarter of the other machines, I made my first baler purchase. – Based solely on my belief in this machine, for several years I have attended many of their trade shows testifying to the efficiency of the machine.”
Does the TC-710 Baler have an auto tie feature?
No, the baler is designed for manual tie only using 10’ 14 gauge wires with an eyelet on one end.
How does the tie system work then? Three wires are fed through separate channels on one side of the baler framework starting at the back of the crushing chamber (just in front of the platen). They continue from the side channels to door channels then on out the channels on the opposite side of the baler. The wires are “eared out” and stick out the sides of the baler as the bale is being produced. The product is thus pressed into the wire as it is being made. At bale completion the “eared out” wire is fed behind three separate hinges that are mounted on the front of the platen which are pressed against the back of the bale. The wire is then fed through the eyelet on the outside of bale chamber (where threading began) twisted and tied off. The platen pressure is “backed off” causing the hinges to swing open thereby freeing the wire to contact the completed bale end.
How do I remove the bale from the machine?
Once the bale is tied and the pressure on the platen released the door can be opened. Once the door is open the pressure is again applied to the bale and the platen will push the bale far enough out the open door for the operator to remove the bale.
Can I make a smaller bale?
Yes. The bale will always be 20” x 20” but you can reduce the length of the bale to something less than 36” if your need calls for that.
Do I need to make sure all product is out of the containers before baling?
No, the TC-710 provides enough crushing force to push the liquid out during compression.
Do I need to remove the caps from the plastic bottles?
No, the TC-710 provides enough crushing force to crush bottles with caps still in place.
What items can I bale with the TC-710?
Aluminum cans, PET, clothing, stretch laminate, shredded paper are the most common items but it has much flexibility regarding items to crush.
Will the TC-710 work for cardboard?
NO, our TC-720 Baler is the ideal solution for cardboard baling.
Does the TC-710 have to be bolted to the floor?
No. The baler comes with steel wheel casters that can be mounted to the footings of the baler for ease of movement around the shop. Note: Many users choose to secure the unit to the floor for safety purposes.
Can the TC-710 be portable?
Yes. The TC-710 weighs in around 2000 lbs but can be mounted on a trailer or truck bed. It comes standard with either an 18hp B & S vanguard commercial motor complete with an electric start or a 10hp 3ph 220/440 V electric motor (for stationary units).
