Sizes vertical cardboard balers

We’ve sorted vertical balers into three groups based on the cardboard bale weight they produce. For each of these vertical baler groups, we separated the internal and external pressing systems.

 

We divided the pressing systems because internal pressing systems have a lower height but cost more than their external cylinder baler counterparts.
