Heil Environmental introduces new drop frame side loader

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 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.

Advantages of Carrier Transicold’s new Vector 8500 single-temperature hybrid trailer refrigeration unit include less weight, better capacity and improved fuel efficiency, according to the company. With the Vector 8500, Carrier is also introducing a fully hermetic electric scroll compressor, used in refrigerated marine container systems, that has 70 percent fewer moving parts and is 200 lbs lighter than a traditional reciprocating compressor. The Carrier Transicold Vector 8500 incorporates the manufacturer’s ecoFORWARD technologies. Compared to the unit it succeeds, the new Vector 8500: • Weighs 210 lbs less, a 10 percent weight savings; • Provides up to 4% higher cooling capacity – 60,000 BTU at 35 degrees F and 24,000 BTU at -20 degrees F; • Consumes up to 26% less fuel over a full range of operating conditions; and • Reduces engine runtime by up to 14%. In start/stop mode, according to Carrier, the greater capacity and higher efficiency also help the Vector 8500 achieve setpoint faster, enabling the engine to shut off sooner, ultimately reducing engine run hours and runtime-based maintenance expenses. The Vector 8500 unit’s engine is certified for the 2013 EPA Tier 4 standard for engines less than 25 HP. For fleets operating in California beyond seven years, the Vector platform’s standard electric standby capability provides an in-use compliance option.
