LOCK-OUT & TAG-OUT INSTRUCTIONS
2-1
FOREWORD: Before entering any part of the compactor, be
sure that all sources of energy have been shut off, all potential hazards have been eliminated, and the compactor is
locked-out and tagged-out in accordance with OSHA and
ANSI requirements. If the ram is pressing against a load, move the
ram rearward before shutting the compactor down. The specific lockout and tag-out instructions may vary from company to company (i.e.
multiple locks may be required, or other machinery may need to be
locked-out and tagged-out). The following instructions are provided as
minimum guidelines.
INSTRUCTIONS
1. Move the main disconnect lever to the OFF position.
2. Padlock the disconnect lever with a keyed padlock and take the key
with you.
3. Along with the padlock, place an appropriate, highly visible, warning
tag on the disconnect lever. The tag should provide a warning such as:
“Danger: Do not operate equipment. Person working on equipment.” or
“Warning: Do not energize without the permission of ________________.”
4. After locking and tagging the compactor, try to start and operate the
compactor (as outlined in the Operating Instructions) to make sure the
lock-out and tag-out is effective. If the lock-out and tag-out is effective,
remove the key from the keyswitch and take with you.
ELECTRICAL: The motor control panel contains high
voltage components. Only authorized service personnel should be allowed inside the panel. Authorized service personnel should be allowed inside the panel only
after the compactor has been locked-out and taggedout.
HYDRAULIC: Stored hydraulic energy must
be removed from the compactor hydraulic circuit for complete lock-out and tag-out. Make
sure that this energy has been relieved by
manually depressing the solenoid valve pin
located in the center of each coil end of the
directional control valve.

PERIODIC MAINTENANCE
2-2
WARNING: RAM SPEED ACCELERATES AS RAM RETRACTS. NEVER ENTER
ANY PART OF THE SELF-CONTAINED COMPACTOR/CONTAINER UNTIL THE
UNIT HAS BEEN LOCKED OUT AND TAGGED OUT.
MONTHLY
1. Check external hoses for chafing, rubbing, or other deterioration and damage.
2. Check for any obvious unsafe conditions in the compactor area.
3. Check oil level in hydraulic reservoir. Level should be 3/4 of sight gauge.
4. Clean out or wash out debris from behind compactor ram.
5. Lubricate the ram guidance tracks using the grease fittings on the compactor side
(For guided ram machines only), and check guide shoes for wear.
THREE MONTHS
1. Check functional operation of controls and options (stop button, timers, lights, etc.).
2. Check hydraulic cylinder, internal hoses, and connections for leakage; check hoses
for chafing and wear.
3. Lubricate the container door hinges.
ANNUALLY
1. Lubricate electric motor bearings annually per the manufacturers instructions.
FILTER MAINTENANCE
1. The hydraulic filter should be cleaned at regular yearly intervals.
2. The filter may be removed from the unit by disconnecting the union on the suction
side of the pump, removing the four bolts retaining the cover plate, and lifting the filter from the reservoir.
3. Care should be exercised in cleaning the fiIter to insure that the element is not torn.
Clean the element with a soft brush and standard industrial solvent.
4. Replace the filter after cleaning and tighten the union securely. Pump noise and a
"crackle" sound is most often caused by air entering the pump suction line.
Tightening the suction fittings will usually eliminate the problem.

PRESSURE SETTING
When the hydraulic cylinders used in the RJ-88SC, RJ-100SC, RJ-250SC, and RJ250VL are fully extended or retracted, they bypass internally. This makes it impossible for the hydraulic system to reach relief pressure. Follow the recommendations
below for proper pressure setting.
1. Disconnect and lock out power using the procedure on page 2-1.
2. Using the quick disconnects, disconnect the hydraulic hoses from the compactor.
3. Remove the 1/4” plug from the check valve and install a 0-3000 psi pressure gauge.
4. Loosen the lock nut on the relief valve and turn the adjustment screw several turns
counter clockwise.
5. Remove the lock out provisions and turn the disconnect to the ON position. Start the
power unit using the OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS on page 1-5 or 1-6.
6. With the hoses disconnected, the power unit will build pressure. Adjust the relief
pressure up by turning the relief adjustment screw clockwise. Adjust the relief valve
to the desired pressure setting and tighten the lock nut. See chart below.
7. Press the EMERGENCY STOP button to stop the power unit, and relieve the stored
hydraulic energy as described on page 2-1.
8. Disconnect and lock out power as described in Step 1.

RAM CONTROL TIMER ADJUSTMENT
Determine the cycle time of your machine. This can be found in the “CHARTS” section
of this manual under “TIMER SETTINGS”. Set the timers as shown in the chart.
When the switches are properly set, the ram will fully extend, stop for one-half to one
second, then fully retract, stop and the unit will shut down.
NOTE: As time passes, the cycle time may change and need to be readjusted.
To set a timer, move the appropriate binary switches to the ON position. The timer
switch settings are cumulative (all switches in the ON position add up to the total number of seconds for the timer setting).
Ex. : Switch 1 ( 1 sec) = OFF
Switch 2 ( 2 sec) = OFF
Switch 3 ( 4 sec) = ON
4 sec
Switch 4 ( 8 sec) = ON
8 sec
Switch 5 ( 16 sec) = ON

CYLINDER REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS
1. Remove access covers from compactor.
2. Remove hoses (4, for 88SC & 250SC, 100SC & 250VL).
3. Remove cylinder pins.
4. Remove cylinders (2, for 88SC & 250SC, 1, for 100SC & 250VL).
5. To install the cylinders, reverse the above steps.
MULTI-CYCLE TIMER ADJUSTMENT - OPTION
Determine the cycle time of your machine. This can be found in the CHARTS section of
this manual under TIMER SETTINGS. Next multiply the cycle time by the number of
cycles the machine should run and subtract one fourth of the cycle time. This is the
cumulative number of seconds for which to set the switches.
EXAMPLE: Cycle time of machine ........................... = 28 sec
Desired number of cycles ...................... = 3
Total seconds for 3 cycles (28 X 3) ........ = 84 sec
One fourth of cycle time (28/4) ...............= 7 sec
Number of seconds to set timer (84 - 7) = 77 sec
RAM STOP FORWARD - OPTION
To convert the RJ-88SC, RJ-100SC, RJ-250SC, and RJ-250VL to Ram Stop Forward,
move the purple solenoid wire from terminal # 8 to terminal # 10. Reset timers by the
settings shown in the TIMER SETTINGS section under CHARTS in this manual.
Change the “START-FORWARD” key lock push button legend to “START-REVERSE”.
Change the “REVERSE” button legend to “FORWARD”.
WARRANTY AND SERVICE ON MOTORS

PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION
2-6
STANDARD SYSTEM OPERATING CHARACTERISTICS, 5 hp & 10 hp
The system uses special cylinders to move the ram and two timers to control the operation of the ram. When the hydraulic cylinders used in the RJ-88SC, RJ-100SC, RJ250SC, and RJ-250VL are fully extended or retracted, they bypass internally. This
makes it impossible for the hydraulic system to reach relief pressure. The sequence of
operation for this system is as follows:
Upon startup, a contact is made that energizes the motor starter, starting the electric
motor and at the same time energizing T1 timer coil. When T1 is energized, the valve
solenoid shifts the valve so that the hydraulic oil is directed to extend the cylinder which
extends the ram. When T1 timer times out, the contacts reverse causing T2 timer to
energize and the solenoid to shift the valve into the reverse position. In this position, the
valve directs the hydraulic oil into the front end of the cylinder causing the cylinder to
retract, therefore causing the ram to retract. When T2 timer times out, the motor starter
contact is opened causing the motor starter to shut down, therefore causing the
motor/power unit to shut down.

3 INSTALLATION
CONCRETE PAD REQUIREMENTS
3-1
CAUTION:
REVIEW THIS MANUAL BEFORE MAKING THE INSTALLATION. STUDY THE JOBSITE AND INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS CAREFULLY TO BE CERTAIN ALL
NECESSARY SAFEGUARDS AND OR SAFETY DEVICES ARE PROVIDED TO
PROTECT ALL PERSONNEL AND EQUIPMENT DURING THE INSTALLATION AND
AS A COMPLETED SYSTEM. SPECIAL ATTENTION IS DIRECTED TO THE
EXTRACT FROM AMERICAN NATIONAL STANDARDS INSTlTUTE Z245.2 .
These operating instructions are not intended as a substitute for training and experience in proper use and safety procedures in operating this equipment.
Marathon Equipment Co. does not assume responsibility for the installation procedures of this equipment. Conformance to applicable local, state, and federal
laws concerning installation rests with the customer.
CONCRETE PAD
1. Preferred dimensions of the concrete pad are 10'0" wide and a length of 5'0" greater
than the length of the compactor/container. It should be level and of minimum 3000
PSI concrete steel reinforced, 6" thick. It is preferred that the concrete pad be flush
with the surrounding ground level. NOTE: Units with four ground rollers must be
installed on a level pad.
2. To provide accessibility, concrete pad should be positioned to allow 2'0" between
machine and building wall if installed parallel with building. Allow a minimum of 45'
of clear space from end of pad for container handling vehicle.
Note: The clearances given are minimums. Your installation may require greater
clearances depending on the site and the hauling equipment that will be used.
CONTAINER GUIDES
If container guides (optional) are used with the self-contained units, the guides should
be anchored to the concrete pad using 3/4" X 6" anchor bolts. These bolts should be
concrete anchors or expansion type anchor bolts. To allow for construction variations, it
is best if these holes are drilled in the concrete after prelocating the container guides in
their desired location. Drill holes and place anchor bolts in each location provided on
the guides. When the guides have been placed in position, and the anchor bolts have
set, tighten all nuts securely.
3 INSTALLATION
STEEL INSTALLATION PROCEDURES
3-2
DOCK INSTALLATION
If the appropriate accessories are ordered from Marathon Equipment Co., the compactor/container will be furnished with either a four-sided hopper or a three-sided hopper with a hinged gate. THESE ACCESSORIES SHOULD NOT BE ALTERED AS THEY
ARE MANUFACTURED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THOSE STANDARDS WHICH PREVAIL AT THE TIME OF MANUFACTURE.
If the compactor/container cannot be directly abutted to the dock or if there is any difference in height between the dock and the compactor/container, an appropriately sturdy
transition section should be provided by the customer and securely affixed to the dock.
Along with the transition section, a compactor/container guidance/stop mechanism
should be installed to assure that the unit does not bottom out against the transition
section or dock during dock placement (See ANSI Z245.2 Safety Standards). Optional
container guides with stops are available from Marathon and are recommended for
proper dock placement of the compactor/container.
CHUTE-FED INSTALLATION
Compactors installed in this arrangement are normally fed "through-the-wall". The lower
edge of the access hole in the wall should be a MINIMUM of 42" (and, if possible, not
more than 58") from the inside floor level. A security door (in accordance with local
code) shouId be installed in the walI opening. In the absence of a local code, this door
should be constructed of 3/16" thick steel or of steel hollow core design and be lockable
from the inside of the building .
DECALS
Be certain that the appropriate decals are in their proper locations at all times on the
machine. For decal locations, see “DECALS” and “DECAL PLACEMENT” in the
Operation section of this manual.
NOTE: Installation is not complete until all decals are in place.
3 INSTALLATION
ELECTRICAL & HYDRAULIC INSTALLATION
3-3
The motor control panel contains high
voltage components. Only authorized
service personnel should be allowed
inside. See Lock-Out & Tag-Out instructions in the maintenance section.
A lockable fused disconnect switch (customer furnished) must be installed and be within
sight of the compactor motor control panel location, not to exceed 50'0" from the compactor. This fused disconnect switch should be sized in accordance with the compactor
(see Fuse and Circuit Breaker Chart).
CAUTION: All equipment should be grounded per National Electric Code.
REMOTE POWER PACK INSTALLATION
1. The remote power pack should be installed and anchored as required by the customer. If the operator station is mounted in the face of the motor control panel, be
certain these controls are located as to be in a convenient, but not hazardous, location to the customer.
CAUTION: Operator Station must be located so that the Mushroom (Emergency)
Stop Button is readily accessible to the operator and within three (3) feet of the
charging chamber access door. If installation requires the operator station to be
located in a more remote area, a second Emergency Stop Button should be added
and installed in the manner described above.
2. For a through-the-wall power pack installation, see the diagram THROUGH-THEWALL POWER UNIT INSTALLATION at the end of this manual. Special care should
be taken to protect the hoses from abrasive objects.
3. Connect the hydraulic hoses to the power pack, exercising care to follow the port
decals (A or B) on the packer and the power pack. In the event the decals have
been obliterated, the hose leading from the rear of the cylinder should be installed
in the side port of the block to which solenoid valve is bolted (A Port). The hose
leading from rod end of the cylinder should be connected to the end of the block to
which the solenoid valve is bolted (B Port). Refer to Power Unit diagrams in the
Maintenance section of this manual.
3 INSTALLATION
ELECTRICAL & HYDRAULIC INSTALLATION
3-4
PUSHBUTTON OPERATOR STATION
If a remote operator station is furnished, it will be factory wired using Sealtite. If it is
necessary to disconnect it from the wires (to install the operator station inside a building), exercise care that these wires are reconnected as originally furnished. (Check
local codes to be certain that Sealtite is acceptable.)
CAUTION: Operator Station must be located so that the Mushroom (Emergency) Stop
Button is readily accessible to the operator and within three (3) feet of the charging
chamber access door. If installation requires this operator station to be located in a
more remote area, a second Emergency Stop Button should be added and installed in
the manner described above.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
1. Run power lines, between fused disconnect switch (customer furnished) and compactor's motor control panel, in accordance with local electrical codes, using knockouts in bottom of motor control panel. See Fuse & Circuit Breaker Chart for Motors
and Wire Size Chart, in the Maintenance Section, to determine the proper service
disconnect amperage rating and the proper wire size.
NOTE: High legs should be installed to L3 on motor starter.
2. Check voltage at fused disconnect switch to be certain it is the same as is shown on
compactor or remote power pack. If voltage is correct, put fused disconnect switch
in "ON" position.
START-UP INSTRUCTIONS
1. With the ram fully retracted, check to be sure the oil reservoir is full to the 3/4 level
on the sight gauge (Refer to the maintenance chart for hydraulic oil recommendations). The hydraulic system pressure has been factory set and the entire unit has
been operated prior to shipment.
2. CAUTION: MAKE SURE PERSONS AND MATERIAL ARE CLEAR OF CHARGE
BOX AREA.
3. Depress the start button and check the pump shaft for proper rotation.
CAUTION: If the pump rotates backward, stop immediately. The pump will be
damaged if it is operated in reverse even for short periods. Reversing any two
incoming power lines will change the motor/pump rotation.
4. Make sure that the operators are trained in the proper use of this equip-
ment.
