DuraPack 5000 Rear Load Trash Trucks

Heil DuraPack 5000 Standard Features

The In-Sight display allows for enhanced troubleshooting from the safety of the cab. This refresh also moved all in-cab switches to the In-Sight Display, allowing for constant modification.

The DuraPack 5000 features a flat, abrasion-resistant steel floor, which eliminates the messy job of cleaning trash buildup out of dirty troughs.

Our three-micron filtration system keeps oil cleaner, and extends the life of hydraulic components. Other manufacturers use 10-micron filtration, which can allow particulate matter to damage the hydraulic system.

Convenient one-handed manual controls stop, start, or reverse the upper panel or sweep panel at any point in the packing cycle.

The generous 3.94-cubic-yard hopper can accommodate large items with ease, and requires less cycling on the route.

Our exclusive, fully welded, interlaced subframe provides exceptional longevity, while resisting abrasion, corrosion, and salt damage. The body is constructed of 7-8 ga. high tensile strength steel, while the hopper features 1⁄4″ thick AR400 steel on the floor, and 3⁄16″ thick AR400 steel on the sides for superior strength and durability.

The Heil Linkage Packing System is a proven performer. It has no rollers, slides, or slide shoes to wear out. Smaller cylinders deliver considerably more packing power for increased payloads.

Our Service Smart design simplifies routine maintenance, keeping your truck away from the shop, and out servicing your customers, making money. The side door provides easy access for common maintenance tasks.
