Al-jon is a family owned and operated manufacturing facility that has been supplying the Scrap, Auto Dismantling and Solid Waste industry since 1963. Nearly 50 years ago, the first machine rolled out of the Al-jon factory. Since then our motto has remained the same…

‘Keeping it Simple, Building it Strong’, words Al-jon staff live by every day.

Al-jon are proud of the machines they build and are confident that you will be as well. Al-jon machines are purpose-built for their application, allowing us to deliver to you the right machine for the job.

Al-jon is small enough to listen to your ideas for product improvement, yet large enough to provide after-the-sale service and support at levels companies larger than Al-jon cannot match.

A few of the facts about Al-jon:

  • Al-jon’s first car crusher was built in 1964
  • Al-jon’s first landfill compactor was built in 1981
  • Al-jon is ISO 9001:2008 certified
  • Employee turnover in our plant is virtually unknown to us – driving consistent quality into each and every product.

Solid Waste Equipment

Al-jon provides the best landfill compaction equipment and the most value with better compaction and less downtime.

ANYTHING LESS THAN AL-JON IS TOO EXPENSIVE.

The cost of developing an acre of landfill space is staggering – you have to put as much trash as you possibly can in the space you have available. Adding another (590 kg of trash per cubic meter) can make a huge difference to your bottom line.

Informed solid waste operators prefer Al-jon. Unlike converted wheel loaders, Al-jon landfill compactors are the only American-made landfill compactors designed from the ground up for that purpose. Al-jon’s Landfill Compactors literally pay for themselves by making efficient use of valuable air space.

AL-JON LANDFILL COMPACTORS ARE DESIGNED ABOVE OTHERS.

  • Al-jon Landfill Compactors are the heaviest machines in their class
  • Al-jon Landfill Compactors have hydrostatic All-Wheel drive
  • Al-jon provides you the choice of engine and horsepower to meet your needs
  • Al-jon wheels are designed for your application

Al-jon offers three different landfill compactor models – ranging from (37,195 kg) up to (57,153 kg) including the Advantage 500, Advantage 525 and the heavy weight champion of the world, the Advantage 600.

SAY GOOD-BYE TO WHEEL WRAP AND CLEANER BARS. The cleats on Al-jon wheels are another important difference in our machines.

Al-jon landfill compactors are heavier, more efficient, you will increase your compaction density and increase your landfill’s life.

ADVANTAGE 500 LANDFILL COMPACTOR FEATURES:

  • Dependable all-wheel hydrostatic drive. No torque converter, no clutch, no differentials or axle shafts. Easy component replacement means less downtime when repairs are needed.
  • Your choice of powerful, efficient 15.2 liter/475 gross h.p. CAT or 13.5 liter/500 gross h.p. John Deere engines or higher horsepower units to best fit your needs.
  • Speed- 4 speeds forward, 4 speeds reverse to 5.2 mph (0 to 8 km/h)
  • OSHA approved, all-wheel hydrodynamic braking without brake pedals or exposed brake lines. Independent Spring-Applied-Hydraulic-Release parking/emergency brakes engage automatically if there is a loss of hydraulic pressure.
  • Electrical System- 24 volt system with master disconnect. Minimum 100 amp alternator. 4 maintenance free heavy duty batteries rated at 992 CCA each 100 – 140 AMP Alternator.
  • Extra heavy duty steel construction and sealed undercarriage produce a compactor perfectly suited for use in rugged landfill conditions. No service components are located under the machine so opening “belly pans” are not required.
  • Filtration/Cooling- Closed loop hydrostatic drive system for each wheel with 10 micron filtration. Hydraulic circuit includes 5 micron return filtration. Oversized radiator, oil cooler and charge air cooler with slide-out prescreens for easy access and cleaning. Auto-reverse hydraulic cooling fan is standard.
  • Options include automatic fire suppression, central automatic lubrication system, quick engine oil change system, fast fuel system, rear vision camera and motor system and cruise control (throttle lock)

ADVANTAGE 500 LANDFILL COMPACTOR INTERIOR FEATURES:

  • MC400 electronic controller continuously calibrates speed and steering functions and monitors critical operating systems. The result is effortless steering and increased component wear life.
  • Easy-to-read illuminated analog gauges include engine oil pressure, coolant temperature, volt meter, fuel level and tachometer. MC400 electronic display screen monitors engine oil pressure, engine coolant temperature, engine speed (RPM), engine % load, run hours, battery voltage, boost pressure and transmission oil temperature. The MC400 screen also alerts the operator if potentially damaging operating conditions exist. Fault codes are available when system switches to diagnostic mode.
  • Large 2-door cab offers excellent operator visibility and comfort. Standard joystick steering and blade controls. Climate controls include heater/defroster, filtered fresh air intake system, and 40,000 BTU front-mounted air conditioning system. Fully-adjustable seat.
