Since our inception, we’ve brought the recycling and waste management industry the best performing, longest lasting horizontal recycling balers to the market. Our fit, finish and innovative design revolutionized the industry when first introduced and continue today to meet the demands and specs for recycling applications worldwide.

We can size and configure to your recycling baler application. There is a reason why we have over 3,000 horizontal recycling balers in the market today. We don’t cut corners, and we build to your exacting specifications. Applications include plastic balers, scrap balers, metal balers, PET balers, aluminum balers, cardboard balers, OCC balers, newspaper balers and more.

Our recycling baler equipment solution can provide a variety of configurations, including cycle times, loading door dimensions, motor size, ram forces, tying options, electronic set-up, conveyors and more.

There is nothing more frustrating than downtime through equipment failure, especially when it’s due to product design or construction. Avoid the downtime and the headaches with a best-in-class recycling baler from Excel.

Our recycling machines are made in the United States with high-performing, durable steel, long-lasting hydraulics, industry-leading electronics with efficient design and multiple safety features. Whether you need new recycling baler equipment or refurbished baler equipment, we can show you the advantages of both through Excel Baler and our partner organization Apex Baler Equipment,

One thing that gets lost in all the numbers is the total cost of ownership for recycling balers. When you buy an Excel horizontal baler you get the industry leader for total cost of ownership. What does that mean? It means less downtime. It means improved efficiency. It means quick and responsive service and parts when needed. This all affects cost. Don’t kid yourself. You know when you buy something, and it was basically designed to fail. Not with Excel recycling balers. We’re long-lasting, well-made and will have a positive impact on your bottom line well past your initial cash outlay.
