55SC Drum Crusher


 55SC Drum Crusher

For low-volume drum crushing.

 55SC Drum CrusherWhen you are looking to crush a few dozen drums a month, look no further than the Model 55SC.

At 40,000 pounds, this powerful machine will crush a drum flat to 6.5 inches tall.   Yet, it is still economically priced.

The Model 55SC is available in a “standard” electrical version as well as two explosion-proof configurations.   Both the Model 55SC and the 55SC-EX use 3-phase electrical power to drive the hydraulic cylinder and controls.

The Model 55SC-P unit uses no electrical power at all, but rather uses standard compressed air to drive a pneumatic air motor.  This air motor in turn drives the same hydraulic circuitry that is used on the 55SC-EX.   With the exception of the power source, all three versions are identical in operation and specification.

  • 40,000 lbs. hydraulic force for inside drum compaction/drum crushing
  • 55SC features clearance above drum for drum overfill
  • Single Hydraulic Control Lever, semi automatic cycle
  • 4″ NFPA cylinder with 2.5″ chrome rod
  • Reinforced steel Crushing Chamber with 1″ thick base plate
  • 1″ Steel Compaction Head with drum crushing plate included
