RAM FLAT Drum Crushers

Old drums taking up space?

Do you have a stack of empty drums in the backyard?

I know, I know you’ve been meaning to get rid of the drums but the scrap dealer won’t give you anything for them. Something about not knowing what’s inside. Plus, the pick-up charge is exorbitant for just a couple dozen drums.

Did you know if you crush the drum – the EPA considers the drum “empty” and now can be sold as scrap metal?

That’s where the RAM FLAT can help. We’ve been building our drum crushers for over 45 years and they are built to last. Whether you have just a few drums a week or a couple hundred a day, we have a drum crusher model to suit your needs.
