The Vestil HDC-905-IDC Drum Crusher / Drum Compactor features a versatile design that can crush and compact 55 gallon drums (ribbed steel, fiber, & plastic) giving the user two pieces of equipment in one. When used as a barrel crusher, this unit crushes 55 gallon steel drums to approximately 6" high and then resets automatically to crush another drum all in approximately 25 seconds. Can also crush 55 gallon fiber and plastic drum but crushed size will vary due to the lack of rigidity of these materials. An integral aluminum drip pan catches any liquid remaining in drum while crushing. The drum compactor feature can compact the contents inside of various drum sizes up to 55 gallons. The drum crushing platen is easily removed for compacting. Safety features include a pressure relief valve to prevent overload and a door interlock system which only allows the motor to function if the door is closed. Comes standard with built-in fork pockets for easy transport via forklift. Meets OSHA 1910.212 and ANSI Z245.5 standards.

The HDC-905-IDC is designed for an intermittent duty cycle that will allow for crushing or compacting up to 250 drums per week in a typical non-hazardous, indoor room-temperature environment when operated on a three-phase power supply. If motor or hydraulic oil exceed 130° the manufacturer recommends waiting for it to cool off back to room temperature 65°F-80°F before operating again. For crushing or compacting a large volume of drums continuously, a High Cycle Drum Crusher is recommended.


The Vestil HDC-905-IDC drum crusher has an estimated lead time to leave the warehouse of 20 to 25 business days.
