DuraPack® Python® Automated Side Load Garbage Trucks
Automated Side Loaders
The DuraPack® Python® automated side loader garbage truck combines two proven products in one high-performance package. The DuraPack body, which is famous for its toughness and productivity, and the patented Python automated arm, which is faster, smoother, and longer-lasting than any other.
The DuraPack Python automated side load garbage truck combines two proven products in one high-performance package. The DuraPack refuse body, which is famous for its toughness and productivity, and the patented Python automated sideload arm, which is one of the fastest, smoothest, and longest-lasting lift arm.
The Python lift arm has an eight-second lift cycle. That can save you up to four seconds per stop, and up to one hour per day, delivering a fiscal savings of more than $15,000 per truck every year! You don’t have to wait for the hopper to catch up with a load, either, because the follower panel enables continuous dumping. Twin packing cylinders deliver outstanding payloads, so you can collect more homes with fewer trips to the disposal site.
Able to lift up to 800 pounds, the Python automated sideload lift arm features cushioned cylinders for action that’s as smooth as a snake, saving wear and tear on the lift arm and the chassis. The unique Python lift geometry also prevents spillage and enables the arm to consistently return carts with the lids closed.
The DuraPack Python sideload garbage truck features the Heil® DuraPack body, which includes a fully welded, interlaced subframe. 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 Python is a sturdy package with the stamina to absorb years of tough hauling.
We back all Heil units with a worldwide network of knowledgeable dealers and service centers, as well as the industry’s first dedicated manufacturer-based training facility and mobile training centers, to help you keep your DuraPack Python operating at its peak. Add to that the Heil brand’s century-old heritage of commitment to robust quality and customer satisfaction, and you can feel certain that when you choose a DuraPack Python you are getting the most productive and durable refuse collection vehicle available.
PYTHON® AUTOMATED LIFT
Eight-second lift cycle can save up to four seconds per stop - up to one hour per day. This can add up to more than $15,000 in savings per truck, per year! The Python lift arm’s nine-foot reach can slither between cars and other obstacles, making even the most difficult pick-ups possible.
JOYSTICK CAB CONTROLS
Reliable, ergonomic joystick controls deliver smoother performance and enhanced usability. With the AutoLoad system, the operator can reach, grab, lift, dump, and return the arm to the stowed position using only the joystick and 2 buttons.
PYTHON® GRABBER GEARS
Made from specially formulated high-strength alloy steel, the Python lift arm’s superior hardened grabber gears virtually eliminate gear wear. The gears are splined to the grabber shafts and can be cycled up to 1,000,000 times with little evidence of wear.
DURABILITY AND LONGEVITY
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 5⁄16" thick AR400 steel on the floor, and 3⁄16" thick AR400 steel on the sides for superior strength and durability.
Optimized Body Weight
The DuraPack Python sideload garbage truck 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 COMPACTION BODY
High tensile strength steel withstands the exceptional forces of the compaction cycle, ensuring maximum payloads, and fewer trips to the disposal site.
SERVICE SMART DESIGN
Our Service Smart design simplifies routine maintenance. Features include a new soft-shift valve, proximity switches, and a cable carrier that houses all the Python lift arm’s hydraulic hoses.
EXCEPTIONAL REACH and LIFT
The patented automated Python arm can reach up to nine feet to go where other automated arms cannot. Able to lift up to up to 800 pounds, the Python arm features cushioned cylinders for smooth action, saving wear and tear on both the lift arm and the chassis. The Python arm’s unique lift geometry enables the arm to consistently return carts with the lids closed.
ON-BOARD DIAGNOSTIC TOOLS
Quickly and easily diagnose problems away from outside hazards and weather. On-board diagnostic tools make troubleshooting a breeze.
The DuraPack Python tailgate is reinforced to prevent buckling and features a 60" seal to keep liquids inside the body where they belong.
The Heil® in-cab operated tailgate locking system not only keeps payloads secure but also enables the operator to unlock and open the tailgate to discharge the payload from the safety and comfort of the cab. Reflective indicator tags, visible from the cab’s mirrors, confirm when the tailgate is sealed.
REMOTE Controller with In-Sight Display
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. This results in less downtime, ease of service, and unmatched simplicity of operation.
The Heil DuraMount Design, used to mount the lift to the chassis frame, reduces the potential for bolt fatigue, and provides Service Smart bolt access for easy maintenance.
