Half/Pack® Frontload Garbage Trucks
Front End Loaders
The Heil® Half/Pack is a commercial frontload garbage truck that is legendary in the industry for its durability and dependability. Available with our patented Odyssey® Controls technology, the Half/Pack offers enhanced productivity and lowest Total Cost of Collection (TCC).
The most popular frontload garbage truck for over 50 years... For more than one reason.
The Half/Pack has consistently delivered proven performance in some of the most demanding environments imaginable, earning a loyal following of users who rely on its unmatched dependability and appreciate its lowest total cost of ownership.
Heil continues to set the standard for front loaders with the evolution of innovative new features that enhance functionality. Our patented Shur-Lock tailgate locks, double-walled and lapped hopper sides, and an industry-leading interlaced ladder subfloor foundation mean that your Half/Pack is built for a long, reliable lifespan. The Half/Pack now comes with a 20 cubic yard option, increasing the maneuverability of the vehicle due to a shorter wheelbase, and allowing for FET exemption*.
When combined with The Curotto-Can®, the Half/Pack becomes the most productive residential collection vehicle on the road. With eyes-forward, operators are safer, contamination can be identified at the source, and no carts are lost. With the Curotto-Can, fleet owners have the ability to handle take-all routes and won’t need a second truck for bulk collection.
Add that to the Heil brand’s century-old heritage of commitment to customer satisfaction, and you can feel certain that when you choose a Half/Pack, you are getting the most productive, durable, safe, and easy-to-maintain front loader available.
The interlaced subframe provides exceptional strength and durability, which means your Half/Pack front loader will enjoy a long lifespan and excellent resale value.
High tensile strength steel withstands the exceptional forces of the compaction cycle and ensures maximum payloads. Our exclusive double-wall hopper reduces corrosion, which increases long-term durability.
Hardened Rod Scrapers on Arm Cylinders
The scrapers help to minimize ingestion of material, such as paint, melted plastic, and leachate into the hydraulic system. This reduces the chance of objects entering the cylinder seal and causing damage.
Zinc-Plated Hydraulic Tubes
Use of zinc-plated hydraulic tubes reduces hydraulic leak-causing corrosion, lessening the frequency with which components need to be replaced over the life of the body. This reduces maintenance and downtime costs.
Hydraulic Tube Covers
Durable covers protect tubes and hoses from damage, resulting in less maintenance.
Raised Packer Tracks
Elevated packer and eject tracks keep them from operating in abrasive debris or corrosive leachate. Heavy-duty wear strips are a standard feature.
BODY BACKUP ASSIST LIGHTS
Standard backup assist lights mounted on the body help to illuminate your surroundings while in reverse.
Illuminated Push Button Controls
Easy to read and understand touch button body, packer, pump and lighting controls with indicator lights come standard.
Shur-Lock Tailgate Locks
The Heil® in-cab operated tailgate locking system not only keeps payloads secure but also enables the operator to unlock and open the tailgate and discharge the payload from the safety of the cab. In-cab, on display notifications confirm when the tailgate is sealed.
UPDATED INTEGRATED DISPLAY W/ ON-BOARD DIAGNOSTIC TOOL
Standard 7" display provides real-time feedback, as well as optimal operator control. The operator can look to one place for all needed body information. Also, the Insight display offers maintenance personnel the ability to quickly and easily diagnose problems away from outside hazards and weather. 3rd Eye® Camera feeds are also integrated into the display, thus eliminating the
need for a separate camera monitor, freeing up line of sight and cab space. An optional 12" in-cab display is also available.
Less Time in the Shop
The Half/Pack front load garbage truck features our Service Smart design, which simplifies routine maintenance and helps keep you away from the shop and out servicing your customers.
Our exclusive “clean front head” relocates the hydraulic body valve from the front head to under the side of the body. This design reduces the influence of engine heat on the hydraulic components, as well as improving access to the valve bodies. This also means improved safety and reliability, all while reducing downtime.
Reliable Sensor Technology
The use of tamper-proof in-cylinder and arc sensors seamlessly gauge component locations for effortless control. This eliminates proximity switches that previously required frequent adjustment and maintenance, resulting in less downtime and maintenance costs.
