"We considered and evaluated different equipment options and brands before settling on the Komar auger units. We have gone from 1 pull a day to 1 pull a week in our corrugated waste stream. Komars support has been fantastic!"

"...our peak season crunch overwhelmed our ram compactors and facilitated the need for 11 open top containers being pulled daily. The 2 auger units we installed eliminated the need for open tops and saved us thousands of dollars in transportation fees. Our first 40 yard container load was 12.2 tons of corrugated."
