Liberty Automated Sideload Garbage Trucks
Automated Side Loaders
The patented Python® automated sideload garbage truck arm has a muscular, 9-foot reach, an 8-second cycle time and can lift up to 800 lbs. The incredibly lightweight Liberty automated side loader is perfect for residential collections. And the constant pack body – which is the lightest in the industry, has a patented paddle packer that continuously sweeps the hopper, eliminating the need to stop and pack the load.
What do you get when you combine one of the most productive, lightweight garbage truck bodies in the industry with the most reliable automated arm? A true performer — the Heil® Liberty® Automated Side Load Trash Truck! By integrating our time-tested Continuous Pack body with the patented technology of the Python arm, Heil has created a refuse collection body with proven reliability and unsurpassed speed.
The Continuous Pack body has been a customer favorite for more than 35 years, far and away the most popular ever produced. This remarkable, lightweight body will accommodate routes of any size, with seven models ranging from 16 to 32 cubic yards. Our patented Big Swing Paddle Packer design continuously sweeps the hopper, so there’s no need to stop and pack the load. Because there is no packer panel to slide into the body, the need for shoes, guide tracks, guide rails, and internal body parts is eliminated, as is the need to clean out behind the packer. The standard Select-O-Pack feature allows an operator to set a predetermined number of lift cycles before the auto-pack sequence is engaged, simplifying operation for the driver, and extending the life of the paddle packer.
The patented Python lift arm is one of the fastest, smoothest, and most maintenance-friendly automated arms in the world. It features an eight-second lift cycle, which can save you up to four seconds per stop and up to one hour per day – delivering more than $15,000 in savings per truck per year. The Python arm’s nine-foot reach can negotiate between cars and other obstacles, making even the most difficult pick-ups possible.
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 Liberty 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 Liberty 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 9' reach can slither between cars and other obstacles, making even the most difficult pick-ups possible.
Big Swing Paddle Packer
Improved Big Swing design increases paddle life by 2X from previous version. The newly designed packer shaft seal also virtually eliminates leaks. Hard tube lines to upper and lower bearings allow grease to be applied from the ground level.
Select-O-Pack allows an operator to set a predetermined number of lift cycles before the auto-pack sequence is engaged. This feature simplifies operation and helps extend the life of the paddle packer.
The solidly designed lightweight body allows for a more optimal payload, and is ideal for areas with stringent weight restrictions.
PATENTED PADDLE PACKER
The Liberty has a patented paddle packer that continuously sweeps the hopper, eliminating the need to stop and pack the load. This eliminates the need to clean out debris from behind the packer sweep.
2X INCREASED PADDLE LIFE
New materials and welding procedures, better spline design, increased upper and lower bearing size, plus replaceable engineered plastic bearing between lower bearing housing and actuator plate all result in increased paddle life by 2X from the previous design.
NEW PACKER SHAFT SEAL DESIGN
The packer shaft seal redesign virtually eliminates leaks and is also easily replaceable/serviceable. This new design also keeps the bottom bearing clean, preventing corrosive leachate from getting on the lower bearing, as well as the actuator.
Upper and Lower Bearing Grease Lines
New hard tube lube lines to the upper and lower bearings, assure that grease can easily be applied from ground level.
The Heil Liberty body is constructed of high tensile steel, 1⁄2" thick in the hopper floor and wall, and 7-gauge 50,000 psi in the body floor. The floor is also supported by 10" structural channel longmembers.
EASY TO MAINTAIN
The body of the Liberty is easy to service because all hydraulic cylinders are accessible from ground level. The packer cylinder is also located under the body to protect it from refuse abrasion.
EXCEPTIONAL REACH AND LIFT
The patented automated Python arm can reach up to 9 feet. 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 routinely replace carts with the lids closed.
Quiet, Fuel-Efficient Operation
The Heil Operate-in-Gear-at-Idle System comes standard on the Liberty. It is designed to help finish routes up to 20% faster, saving up to one gallon of fuel per hour while reducing wear on the lift assembly, chassis, engine, and transmission. Plus, it greatly reduces noise — a benefit to operators and customers alike, especially in residential neighborhoods.
FEWER WEAR COMPONENTS
Because there is no packer panel to slide into the body, the need for shoes, guide tracks, guide rails, and internal body parts is eliminated.
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 two buttons.
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.
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.
