Like all other machines, compactors and balers can break and be in need of repairs.
Here are the 5 most common compactor or baler repairs.
The hydraulic aspect of a baler primarily handles the pressure of compacting the material.
When this fails, it could mean many things including the hoses, fittings and connections need to be tightened or repaired as they may be loose or worn out.
If the electricity of the baler or compactor isn’t working, most repairmen will check the motor starter contracts to see if they are clean.
Once that’s done, they will go on to check all electrical conduit, wires, connections, timers, relays, and circuit boards to make sure none of those need any work.
When a compactor or baler starts to malfunction if might not be the body itself that is need of help. Sometimes it may be something as simple as readjusting the wear bars or grease rails.
Other times the welds, the machine structural components, and the anchors might be in need of repair.
All of which can be handled by a qualified repairman.
Similar to other machines, if you don’t ever bother to keep them clean or get them serviced regularly, chances are they are going to break down.
Neglecting them can lead to small issues that can snowball into bigger ones if not taken care of.
If your baler or compactor is outside, you run the risk of it potentially being vandalized by some up-to-no-good criminals.
In the event that something like this happens, it’s time to call a repairman to make sure no significant damage has been done to your machine.
