The operator inserts the key and then turns it to the “Up” position. When the ram moves to the up position the door can be safely opened.
The large opening allows a 30 gallon container to be emptied easily. The new waste material is dumped into the cavity left in the container by the previous ram position.
After feeding, turn the key to the “pack” position, then remove the key. The ram cycles automatically to the down position, compacts and holds the waste material until the next load.
