Heil has introduced a new and improved design of its MultiTask SL, a 3-in-1 refuse collection vehicle featuring a drop-frame chassis configuration and dual side-loading capability that allows operators to collect containers in manual, semi-automated and automated modes. The new vehicle reduces the total time needed to collect a standard route of residential waste by 20% or more with single-operator capability, delivering a significant productivity advantage for municipalities, private haulers, and major waste collection companies, according to Heil.
“The design of the MultiTask SL is a direct response to addressing our customers’ needs,” explained Randy Brown, Heil Environmental vice president of sales and marketing.
“The new MultiTask SL boasts a number of value-adding customer features and benefits,” explains Jody Hurley, Heil product manager. “The new TeleGrip arm features an exceptional cycle time ranging from 8-20 seconds and 88 in. of reach. Grabbers may be stowed in a work-ready position at the chassis frame rail for a width of less than 102 in. For operation in communities that require a narrow 96-in. vehicle width, the MultiTask SL easily stores the lift in the vehicle’s hopper.”
The TeleGrip’s design also permits the MultiTask SL to be used in narrow streets and alleys, with the arm acting as a cart tipper for receptacles that may be located close to the vehicle body. A low body height limits the potential for paper to blow out of the hopper during tipping, while simultaneously providing for complete dumping of over-filled 96-gal. containers. The MultiTask SL also utilizes the ReadyPack feature, which automatically compacts the payload with every arm cycle.
Built on Heil’s fully welded interlaced subframe for resistance to salt and corrosion, the MultiTask SL also offers a number of other features including: large hopper capacity, twin dump-hoist cylinders, Heil’s exclusive Shur-Lock hydraulic tailgate locks and Heil’s Operate-at-Idle System. Heil offers four body capacities: 24, 27, 30 and 33 cubic yards.
