Gladiator GarageWorks Portability and Style
When you want a trash compactor for your garage, you want to be able to move it about readily and easily.
The Gladiator GarageWorks has heavy duty solid rubber casters which make it simple to move.
The front casters lock in position with a simple step giving a firm hold for when the machine is in operation. The rear casters swivel making for great manoeuvrability.
The Touch-Toe™ drawer opener makes the Gladiator trash compactor simple to open with a touch on the toe pedal.
The compactor has a powdercoat finish giving a protective coating to the industrial style tread plate front so there are no corrosion worries.
The controls for the Gladiator GarageWorks are recessed for both safety and styling. A removable key ensures no unauthorized operation.
Gladiator GarageWorks Operation
Despite its portability, the Gladiator GarageWorks has a large 1.4 cubic feet capacity and a formidable compression force of 2,200 pounds per square inch.
It can recycle cans, bottles and paper products, as well as keeping trash and associated odors under control.
The trash drawer needs to be about half full for the compacting ram to be effective, and when trash compactor bags are full it is a simple matter of releasing the side lock latch to open the tiltable side of the drawer for easy removal.
Replacement bags have prepunched holes which fit over buttons on the outside of the trash drawer for easy fitting.
The Gladiator GarageWorks trash compactor is simple to install, operate and clean – ideal for any garage.
