OBERG® Oil Filter Crushers > Model D-60 Drum Crusher

Drum Crushers by OBERG® Filter Crushers


The Model D-60 is a dual purpose machine. It can be used to compact waste inside the drum or to crush the empty drum itself. By compacting waste into the drum you can realize dramatic savings in handling and disposal fees by getting up to 80% more material into each drum.

Typical waste products that our customers are compacting into drums include paint booth air filters, shop rags, cartridge-style oil filters, low-level radioactive waste, laboratory garments, absorbent materials, metal, and plastic containers, and glassware.

Alternatively, you may have a lot of used drums that you need to dispose of. The Model D-60 will crush a 55-gallon drum down to 4″ in height greatly reducing storage space requirements and transport fees. The Model D-60 will crush drums up to 85 gallons in size.
