Under-CDL Mini Rear Loader

Maneuverable rear loader for efficient daily collection routes.

Because operators don’t need a commercial driver’s license (CDL), the vehicle is exempt from Federal Excise Tax* (FET.)  The beauty of this highly maneuverable, non-CDL rear load garbage truck is its narrow, compact and lightweight design, making it ideal for commercial or residential waste hauling routes.

The Heil® Mini Rear Loader features a large hopper that is perfect for residential waste hauling routes, but also handles the occasional commercial refuse container with ease. The hopper’s large size allows for more trash and fewer tailgate cycles, increasing route productivity and providing route flexibility. Another feature of the Mini Rear Loader is pre-crushing in the hopper. The Heil Linkage Packing System pre-compacts the refuse before it’s loaded into the trash body. With compaction beginning in the hopper, payloads are greatly increased. This allows for more time spent on route, and more collection stops.

The swing link design on the non-CDL Mini Rear Loader offers a smoother, more efficient operation. The simple yet effective design results in less maintenance and a long-lasting, reliable packing mechanism. In addition, the single lever packer control handle allows for easy one-hand operation. This process is fast, easy-to-use, and can complete half the tailgate pack cycle with one movement in each direction. This requires fewer adjustments and less overall maintenance. If you are looking for a small, non-CDL rear loader with BIG performance, the Heil Mini Rear Load garbage truck body fits the bill.

Heil Mini Rear Loader Standard Features

The Mini Rear Loader body is small and maneuverable, allowing access to those exclusive, high-service-price areas that you couldn’t get into before. The compact body size is great for alleys and gated communities.

The link design pre-compacts the refuse before it’s loaded into the body, resulting in increased payloads. This allows for more time on route, and more collection stops.

The simple but effective swing-link design offers a smooth and efficient operation. This design also reduces required maintenance and provides a long-lasting, reliable packing mechanism.

The large hopper allows for more refuse and fewer tailgate cycles, easily handling the occasional commercial container. This increases productivity and flexibility for routes.

The in-body hydraulic oil tank, located on the front of the body, limits the exposure to contaminants and frees space on the chassis frame rail. This provides longer life for the hydraulics, and requires fewer chassis modifications.

The front head of the body-mounted ejector and tailgate valve reduces contamination and frees up space on the chassis frame rail.

The auto-lock tailgate latches engage once the tailgate closes. This worry-free operation ensures that if your tailgate is closed, it’s locked, sealing up the tailgate securely and reducing leaks.

The fast, easy-to-use operation of the single-lever control handle allows for easy one-hand operation. One movement in each direction cycles half the tailgate pack cycle.
