Vertical & Down-Packing Baling Presses & Balers

C&M can customize your vertical to fit your needs

Some examples of C&M's customization of vertical down packing baling presses are rear feed chutes for loading material into the baler via conveyor, cart lifter/dumper or air system, floor mounted power units, hydraulic ejection systems, rear feeders that pull/push the material into the baler evenly, and long stroke cylinders to crush the material being baled.

C&M custom verticals for baling fiber with rear feed chutes and many other options.
