Half/Pack® Sierra™ Front Load Garbage Trucks
Front End Loaders
In response to requests from our haulers in the Western United States, where weight requirements are more stringent, we offer the Half/Pack Sierra front load garbage truck body. It includes all the features and benefits of our popular Half/Pack model in a front load body that weighs 16-percent less.
To build this lighter-weight model, we used sophisticated, high-strength steels to make key components lighter without sacrificing strength, durability, or performance. The result is a 28-cubic yard front loader that weighs just 16,700 lbs. vs. 19,300 lbs. for the same size standard Half/Pack. The Half/Pack Sierra front loader boasts a packer cycle time of 22 to 26 seconds and an arm cycle time of 18 to 20 seconds, and can contain 10 tons of payload without being overweight.
Large and overfilled commercial refuse containers are no match for the Half/Pack Sierra’s 12-cubic yard front load hopper, the largest and lightest in the industry. Plus, it’s the only garbage truck available with double-wall sides made of 145,000 psi steel plates for the durability needed to protect against punctures and protrusions that can lead to corrosion. A curved top door seals the hopper opening to prevent blowing debris and provide an overall lower body height. The Half/Pack Sierra frontload garbage truck can also be fitted with a carry can for residential refuse collection.
