With over 20,000 built and nearly 30 years of reliability, Heil’s DuraPack 5000 high-compaction refuse vehicle has become the mainstay of garbage collection fleets, from small independent haulers to the world’s largest municipal fleet.
Engineered to last. The DuraPack 5000 features Heil’s DP body, the only fully welded, interlaced subframe in a refuse collection truck. With formed channels for extra strength, high tensile strength steel to maximize performance at a minimum weight, and full welding for superior resistance to corrosion and cracking, the DuraPack 5000 is a sturdy rear loader with the stamina to absorb years of tough hauling.
Outstanding weight distribution. But our engineers still weren’t satisfied. Their search for perfection led them to discover a way to create outstanding weight distribution and reduce wear on rearward chassis components. They incorporated a high cylinder mount into a compact design with a short overhang to maximize forward loading of both the body and the payload.
