We also carry the Heil PT1100 rear loader garbage truck, which offers these standard features:

  • The fastest cycle time in its vehicle class – to maximize your crew’s collection efficiency.

We also carry the McNeilus M2 rear loader, which has features like these:

Why Doing Business With Us Is Better Than Buying New

That’s why we’re happy to offer them in top-quality used condition with no federal excise taxes. This is a fantastic way to get the vehicles you need while enjoying substantial savings.

Each of our rear loader garbage trucks for sale receives a painstaking top-to-bottom inspection to ensure that it’s in excellent working condition. All of them carry the remaining OEM body and chassis warranties, and many of them are backed by our own industry-exclusive warranties as well.
