The Smash-It compacts a cubic yard box up to 33% of its original size in 20 seconds. Users can fit up to 3 times more waste in the Smash-It, saving storage space and cutting waste disposal costs. The cost of the machine is typically recovered in 3-6 months. It meets OSHA safety requirements and is forklift compatible. Because the compactors are pneumatic and use compressed air, they use no electricity and overheating or sparking is eliminated.
