Commercial Drum Crushers (DC5000 & DC6000 Models): These models can crush up several hundred drums in a day down to 2.5 to 3” depending on the gauge steel of the drum. Commercial drum crushers are the most standard drum crushers in the market. All drum crushers from the competition fit under this classification.
