Front Loader Truck Specifications

A front loading garbage truck uses a pair of heavy-duty hydraulic arms to lift the waste container over the cab and deposit the material into the rear bin. This is a time-tested design that works well for both residential and commercial routes.

Here at Route Ready, we offer a wide variety of front loader garbage trucks for sale. Here are three of the industry-leading manufacturers we carry.

Heil Front Loader Garbage Truck Specs

The Heil Half/Pack has been the most popular front loader in the United States for more than 50 years. It offers the following specifications:

  • A compaction rating of 117,000 lbf – for greater efficiency than other models.
  • Hauling capacities of up to 40 yards – so you can carry more trash in fewer trips.
  • Large 7-inch display monitor – so your people can easily see what’s going on around the truck, preventing accidents before they occur.
