CMI TrashMaster Logo White

The Industry's Only Full Width Landfill Compactor

The CMI TrashMaster® achieves full width compaction utilising all four wheel paths in a single pass. All other landfill compactors based on old fashioned style tractors leave an uncompacted center line swathe between the two wheel paths resulting in increased passes, fuel consumption and reduced machine life.

The CMI TrashMaster series is built on the proven legacy first developed through Rexworks and now further enhanced in the latest range of models. Its unique wheel configuration, market leading compaction force, robust design and reliability have enabled waste management operations to achieve the highest production efficiencies and maximise the life span of landfill sites.

All aspects of the TrashMaster’s design are focused on maximum productivity. From its ease of maintenance through to the heavy duty mainframe, wheel and dozer blade design, unrivalled all-round visibility and operator ergonomics built into the operator cab, the TrashMaster is built for work day after day in the most demanding operating conditions.

  • Unique wheel arrangement resulting in the industry's only full width landfill compactor
  • Highest compaction forces in the industry to maximize landfill material density
  • Masterline wheels and cleats with a 4 year or 10,000 hour warranty
  • Side facing seat for operator comfort can also swivel to front facing depending on operator preference
    for excellent visibility forward or reverse.

Trashmaster® TM-5 /TM-8

Designed for medium and smaller municipal landfill operations, the CMI Trashmaster® TM-5 /TM-8 has features designed to maximize material density and lengthen landfill life.

Paramount to any landfill operation, compactor availability is necessary to effectively spread and compact material each and every day. The CMI TM-5 / TM-8 utilizes simple, easy to understand systems with unmatched maintenance crew access.

Trashmaster® TM-11

Landfill life and profitability comes down to density of the fill material and how efficiently the material is placed and compacted. The very high performance of the TM-11 is designed for arduous duty in today’s high volume landfill operations.

The semi-U shaped blade ‘funnels’ most materials to the center, then beneath the blade and four independently powered, hydrostatically driven steel cleated wheels of the TM-11.


Full Width Compaction In A Single Pass

In a typical operation old fashioned style tractors, frequently plagued by the uncompacted ‘windrow’ of materials between the only two wheel paths, risk high centering of the machine, losing traction and getting bogged down in the uncompacted soil. This presents a significant operational limit to the machine. To address this limitation, makers of the old-style tractors fit the machine with wider high flotation wheels attempting to strike a balance between the reduction of compaction force produced by wider wheels and the risk of getting stuck.

The TrashMaster’s close, inset front wheels compacts the center line swathe, greatly reducing the risk of getting high centered. This full width compaction, combined with high distributed load (measured in pounds per linear inch or PLI), means that the TrashMaster achieves the most efficient compaction in a single pass of any landfill compactor.

Unique four wheel configuration for effective full width compaction.

Highest Compaction Forces In The Industry

CMI TrashMaster Masterline extended wear wheels and cleats come with a 4 year or 10,000 hour warranty as standard. The cleat contour design delivers the crushing force needed to penetrate and break down refuse with a crisp “chopping” action, which reduces refuse size and eliminates surface“fluffing”. Cleats are mounted in a chevron pattern that discourages build-up and eliminates the need for power sapping raker bars. The TrashMaster wheels have a large diameter, providing greater pushing power with less rolling resistance than competitors’ smaller diameter wheels.

wheels and cleats

CMI TrashMaster self cleaning cleats are mounted in a chevron pattern across the width of the wheel, facing the direction of rotation, for maximum crushing force and minimal gaps across the compaction path. Competitors’ have to rotate the cleats 90 degrees to allow space for raker bars to fit in between which results in gaps across the width of the wheel compaction path reducing the effective crushing force.

Compaction Force

Compaction is as much about how a machine applies force – Distributed Load measured in pounds per linear inch or PLI (N/m) – as how much the machine weighs.

PLI is calculated by dividing total machine mass in pounds (Newtons) by the combined effective width of all four wheels in a single pass, in inches (meters). Generally speaking, the higher the PLI (N/m), the more material will be compacted in the same space, resulting in a greater density and improved productivity.

Distributed Load (PLI) 417 lb/in (72,970 N/m) 606 lb/in (106,138 N/m) 733 lb/in (128,426 N/m)


Efficient Cooling System

High ambient cooling designed for operation in a wide range of climates worldwide with automatic reversing fan to dislodge dirt and debris. Large easy access doors on both sides of radiator/ cooler shrouding.

Control System

TM-11 features a 7” overhead display containing engine and machine info along with onboard diagnostics for user-friendly troubleshooting. Smart power module with fuse protection that shows fuse and relay status on the display. For maintenance purposes the umbilical remote control can also operate machine from the ground.

Powerful Lights

High quality long-life LED lights fitted high up front and rear as standard for excellent working visibility and protective guards fitted to front.

All-Around Safety Cameras

Industry leading Masterview safety camera system uses 4 full color cameras which combine to provide a look down 360º wraparound view of the machine, or split screened with one of the camera feeds.

High Mounted Hydraulics

Steering and blade cylinders and associated hoses are mounted high on the machine providing protection from debris.


Designed with reversible cutting edge and semi U-configuration profile. Heat treated moldboard.

High Visibility Cab

Enhanced ergonomically designed air conditioned cab has the operator in mind with a fully adjustable side or front facing high back air ride seat. Joysticks control steering, blade functions, propel direction and travel speed removing all foot pedals from the cabin. Interior includes a USB charge port, 12v outlet and AM/FM radio.

Hydraulic Actuated Belly Pan

Two heavy duty reinforced steel belly pans swing down allowing easy access underneath and secured by a positive pin lock system.

High Compaction Wheel Design

Masterline extended wear wheels and cleats with 4 year or 10,000 hour warranty. Cleats are designed to produce a crisp “chopping” action, which reduces refuse size and eliminates surface “fluffing”. Cleats are mounted in chevron pattern that discourages build-up and eliminates the need for power sapping raker bars. Optional tip patterns available.

Heavy Duty Drivetrain

The hydrostatic drivetrain on the TM-11 provides fully balanced drive torque to each wheel through a central hydraulic pump station.
