Marathon Equipment Company

Known throughout the world as a leading manufacturer of on-site waste compaction and recycling systems, began one evening in early 1966 as Lawson Acton, refuse hauling contractor, and Jack Wright, a manufacturer of car washes, were talking over the back fence. Acton wasn’t happy with the stationary compactors of the day because they were built like “battleships”, with complicated electrical and hydraulic systems. Only the “wealthy few” could afford them, which automatically left out retailers, shopping malls and smaller industrial companies.

Acton envisioned a compactor which utilized material better and more economically priced within the reach of his waiting market. Combining his idea with Wright’s manufacturing expertise, the first RamJet® compactor was born. It was a struggle for the fledgling company that began producing compactors in its first “factory”, an abandoned service station in 1967. Both resistance from a “wait and see” market and competitive activity combined to make the first years in Birmingham, Alabama, very difficult.

The obvious advantages of Marathon’s more efficient use of materials finally began winning out, and the firm stepped up to a 7,000 sq. ft. plant, then 20,000 sq. ft. and in 1975, to their present facility in Vernon, Alabama. Since 1975, the company has continued its growth by expanding the original 80,000 sq. ft. in Alabama to the present 150,000 sq. ft. In December 1985, Marathon opened its second new plant in Yerington, Nevada, which was expanded in the spring of 1994 from its original 30,000 sq. ft. to 50,000 sq. ft. In November 1989, Marathon opened its third manufacturing plant in Clearfield, Pennsylvania, with 92,000 sq. ft. of floor space.

Privately held for its first 23 years, Marathon was acquired in 1990 by Dover Industries, a diversified industrial manufacturing company and wholly owned subsidiary of Dover Corporation which is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange.

RJ-30 High Density Compaction Extruder

Employing a specially designed curved tube, refuse is densely compressed inside the RJ-30, eliminating the need for a special compaction container. Yet, the RJ-30 achieves higher compaction ratios than any other compactor of its kind. The exclusive design of the RJ-30 discharges a densely compacted log of refuse into any size and type of receiving container. Eighteen to twenty-four inch logs of refuse are gravity fed into the container.

The RJ-30 features a specially designed curved tube that discharges a densely compacted log of refuse into any size and type of receiving container. Eighteen to twenty-four inch logs of refuse are gravity fed into the container. Because of the exclusive “S” shaped tube, the RJ-30 achieves higher compaction ratios than any other compactor available!

Features:

  • Marathon’s RJ-30 features a patented curved tube and hydraulic choker that discharges a densely compacted log of refuse into any size and type receiving container.
  • The material is compacted in the equipment and not in the container making unloading fast and easy. The container is not attached to the RJ-30 which also saves time and eliminates spillage.
  • The RJ-30 is UL Listed and manufactured in accordance with applicaple ANSI standards.
  • The RJ-30 is built tough for years of trouble-free service. The body and ram are constructed of heavy steel plate and the hydraulic power unit (available mounted on the unit or separate) incorporates the latest technology for smooth operation and reduced noise levels.

Benefits Of Compaction:

  • Discourages Scavengers
  • Saves Labor
  • Reduces Collection Costs
  • Reduces Insect/Rodent Problems
  • Prevents Windblown Trash
  • Reduces Fire Hazard
  • Controls Odor
  • Saves Inside Storage Space and Outside Parking Spaces
  • Extends Pavement Life
  • Reduce Pilferage
  • Prevents Unauthorized Access to Your Trash
  • Prevents Unauthorized Disposal
  • Fewer Trips by your hauler … Lower costs
  • Fewer Cleanup Problems… when trash is sealed in a container, there are fewer complaints of messy bin areas
  • Reduced Bin Damage/Fires… sealed containers reduce vandalism opportunities
  • Account Retention… compactor customers are usually long term customers. Also, if you don’t offer the compactor solution, someone else will!
  • Liquid Retention… self-contained compactors retain liquids better than any bin, thus eliminating mess associated with liquid refuse.
