TANA E Series Landfill Compactors

TANA is the first purpose-built waste compactor on the market. The TANA E Series is the result of long-term product development and proven solutions which bring remarkable benefits to the user.

Among the unique features which set TANA landfill compactors apart from other compactors on the market:

  • Full-width twin-drum construction
  • Rigid frame construction
  • Crushing teeth


Designed for maximized uptime and cost-efficient operation

This design provides maximized uptime of the machine.

TANA E Series compactors are able to handle waste on landfill sites in a cost-efficient way, with:

  • Fewer passes

  • Simplified maintenance

  • Good drivability

  • Easier machine management and controls

Therefore, providing better compaction and waste treatment capacity with lower operating costs.


Distinctive features of the TANA E Series landfill compactors


Rigid frame design advantages

A rigid frame provides the optimum crushing force. That is why the TANA compactor has been built around a rigid articulating frame which provides up to 100 percent greater crushing force on a single drum, compared to an oscillating four-wheeler of a similar weight.

  • Provides maximum crushing force; articulation of +/- 40 degrees but zero oscillation

  • Allows an even load spreading with its wide and always level blade

  • Minimizes undesirable cabin swing

  • No uncontrolled weight shifting

  • Maximum compaction

  • Very simple design and extremely robust construction

  • Excellent traction and no slipping or sinking wheels


With a wide drum, machine movement is cut in half compared to the number of compaction passes needed by a four-wheeler. Thus, a wide drum saves both time and fuel by minimizing excessive driving.

Wide drums produce an unrivaled smooth and dense surface.

Compaction Drum and Crushing Teeth Specifications - E320:

TANA Twin-drum construction

The compaction force of the full-width twin drums is directed straight down, thus preventing waste extrusion from underneath the compactor.

Wide drums provide excellent traction, very little to none slipping and do not sink in the below waste. This also produces the unrivaled smooth and dense surface.

With a TANA compactor, a one-way machine movement cuts in half the number of compaction passes needed by a four-wheeler.


Twin drum advantages and features

  • Achieve two full-width passes with a single machine movement
  • Provide the most uniform compaction of any machine on the market - no uncompacted gaps remain between wheels
  • Maximizes waste treatment capacity (tons per hour) - width combined with speed provide maximum traction with multiple rows of teeth leave a level surface of unparalleled smoothness
  • End plates concentrate compaction force straight down


Crushing teeth

The size, shape, structure and total number of the crushing teeth is important. In a TANA E Series landfill compactor, the teeth are 200 mm (7.8") in height, allowing thorough, highly wear-resistant penetration of every fresh waste layer.

The teeth are designed in the shape of a pyramid, are made of solid steel, and are kept clean by a large number of adjustable scraper bars.



Crushing teeth features:

  • Made of solid steel and 200 mm (7.8") in height

  • Provide up to 28 footprints per m2 (28 footprints per 10 square feet)

  • Total of up to 442 teeth on a machine

  • Produce maximum kneading effect on waste

  • Laid out in a conical arrangement, maximizing compaction 



Dozer blade

The dozer blade is operated with two hydraulic cylinders and it is equipped with two arms. Arm joints are with hardened pins and spherical bearings. 


Dozer Blade Specifications - E320:

The frame is constructed of two modular drum frames connected together with a longitudinal upper frame.

The drum frame acts as a shell around the drum, which helps to prevent waste raising to the upper parts of the machine from below.


The upper frame is equipped with center point articulated steering operated with two hydraulic cylinders.

  • Articulation links are equipped with hardened pins and spherical steel bearings.

  • The angle of articulation to the left or right is 40 degrees.


Service platforms and protection

  • Service platforms and steps are equipped with banisters and anti-slide surfaces.

  • Engine and powerpack are protected with lockable hood (bonnet).

  • Opening the hood is made easier by using wind hooks.


Vandalism protection

  • Lockable cabin, engine compartment, and fuel tank filling cap

  • Electronic key for ignition
