HALF/PACK® SIERRA FRONT LOAD GARBAGE TRUCKS
At 16,700 lbs (16% lighter than our standard Half/Pack® Front Loader), the Heil® Sierra front load garbage truck is a mid-weight solution for commercial and residential refuse routes that can carry more than 10 tons of legal payload in its 28 yd frontload hopper. Whether you haul commercial or residential refuse, the Half/Pack® Sierra is simply the best light-weight front loader, hands down.
In response to requests from our waste haulers in the Western United States, where weight requirements are more stringent, we offer the Half/Pack® Sierra front load garbage truck body. It includes all the features and benefits of our popular Half/Pack® model in a front load refuse body that weighs 16-percent less.
To build this lighter-weight model we used sophisticated, high-strength steels to make key components lighter without sacrificing strength, durability, or performance. The result is a 28-cubic yard front load garbage truck that weighs just 16,700 lbs. vs. 19,300 lbs. for the same size standard Half/Pack®. The Half/Pack® Sierra front loader boasts a packer cycle time of 22 to 26 seconds and an arm cycle time of 18 to 20 seconds and can contain 10 tons of payload without being overweight.
Large and overfilled commercial refuse containers are no match for the Half/Pack® Sierra 12-cubic yard front load hopper, the largest and lightest in the industry. Plus, it’s the only garbage truck available with double-wall sides made of 145,000 psi steel plates for the durability needed to protect against punctures and protrusions that can lead to corrosion. A curved top door seals the hopper opening to prevent blowing debris and provide an overall lower body height. The Half/Pack® Sierra frontload garbage truck can also be fitted with a carry can for residential refuse collection.
