DuraPack Rapid Rail Standard Features

The DuraPack Rapid Rail is brilliantly designed to have an optimized weight, without sacrificing strength and durability. The result is a perfect combination of dependability and increased payload. Greater route productivity delivers the lowest Total Cost of Collection (TCC).

High tensile strength steel withstands the exceptional forces of the compaction cycle, ensuring maximum payloads, and fewer trips to the disposal site.

The Rapid Rail features our Service Smart design, which simplifies routine maintenance. Features include a new soft-shift valve, proximity switches, and a cable carrier that neatly houses and protects all of the arm’s hydraulic hoses.

Odyssey® hydraulic controls cylinder technology delivers reduced lift maintenance and lower parts cost. There are no proximity adjustments and no complex electrical box to troubleshoot. This results in a smoother lift, less operator fatigue and cab shake, and decreased wear.

Allows the operator to shake stubborn refuse out of the container using a preset number of can shakes at the top of the lift cycle with a simple press of a button.

The DuraPack Rapid Rail allows for precision control while giving the operator a smoother lift and reducing cab shake. The lift-feathering feature is standard, giving the ability to precisely pick containers from difficult areas. This reduces the need for the operator to exit the cab, lessens wear and tear on the lift, and increases uptime, delivering the Lowest Total Cost of Collection (TCC).

Made from specially formulated, high-strength, low-alloy steel, the Rapid Rail features superior hardened grabber gears that virtually eliminate gear wear. The gears are splined to the grabber shafts, and can be cycled up to 1,000,000 times with virtually little evidence of wear.

The easy-to-operate joystick gives the operator precise control. Operate the lift like a Rapid Rail or a DuraPack Python® with a press of a button. This reduces the learning curve and training time, increasing productivity from day one, and allowing operators with mixed fleets to transition from unit to unit with no loss in route time.

The “brain” of our system is the rugged mobile controller. This brilliant innovation provides unbeatable intelligence and precise control. Placing the mobile controller in a protected location gives us the intelligence we need and the durability our customers demand. Less downtime, easier service, and unmatched ease of operation.

1,600 pound lift capacity allows for residential, commercial, and multi-family collection. Utilize one unit with more payload carrying capacity.

The DuraPack Rapid Rail arm can handle above-grade can pick-ups as high as two feet, eliminating the need for the operator to get out and reposition the can.

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.

Let the automation do the work. Simply press and hold the grab button, and the arm automatically carries the can up and into the hopper in one smooth motion.
