The Hippo has a big cutting capacity as well, with a shear force of 153 tons and cutting edges on three sides of the loading box it makes short work of over sized materials.
The JMC Hippo has been designed and built to last. The machine features hard wear plates in the bale box, return-line filters to reduce wear and tear on the hydraulic components and a lid fail safe mechanism to prevent accidental damage to the main ram rod. All ram rods are hard-chromed for maximum seal life. The Hippo can be equipped with a loading table and bale track, making loading the Hippo even easier and increasing throughput. We have also just developed a loading hopper that can be filled while the baler is compacting to speed up the loading time. The Hippo will prove to be a rugged and reliable workhorse for your operation for many years to come.
