DuraPack® 5000 Rear Load Garbage Trucks
With nearly 30 years of reliability and over 20,000 units built, the Heil® DuraPack 5000 high-compaction rearload garbage truck has become the mainstay of refuse collection fleets, from small independent haulers to the world’s largest municipal fleet.
Built to last. The DuraPack 5000 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 5000 is a sturdy package with the stamina to absorb years of tough hauling.
Outstanding weight distribution. Incorporating a high cylinder mount into a compact design with a short overhang creates outstanding weight distribution and reduced wear on rearward chassis components. This maximizes forward loading of both the body and the payload.
2020 Controller Refresh. Now, the Heil In-Sight Display provides enhanced troubleshooting capabilities that can all be performed from within the safety of the cab. This is made possible by the recently upgraded remote mobile controller, which eliminates the need for a PDC box. The mobile controller provides two-way communications, and critical information directly to the display, eliminating relays and associated failures. All in-cab switches are conveniently located within the Heil In-Sight Display. This enhanced design allows for future additions, which in the past would have required the addition of an inconveniently placed auxiliary switch, on an already crowded dash. Now all this can be done in one, easy to access, in-cab display.
The 2020 controller refresh allows for enhanced troubleshooting from the safety of the cab. This refresh also moved all in-cab switches to the In-Sight Display, allowing for constant modification.
The interlaced subframe, and frame mounted oil tank provide exceptional strength and durability, which means your DuraPack 5000 will enjoy a long lifespan.
The DuraPack 5000 features a flat, abrasion-resistant steel floor, which eliminates the messy job of cleaning trash buildup out of dirty troughs.
Our three-micron filtration system keeps oil cleaner and extends the life of hydraulic components. Other manufacturers use 10-micron filtration, which can allow particulate matter to damage the hydraulic system.
One-Handed Manual Packing
Convenient one-handed manual controls stop, start, or reverse the upper panel or sweep panel at any point in the packing cycle.
What sets the DuraPack 5000 Apart
High Capacity Hopper
The generous 3.94 cubic yard hopper can accommodate large items with ease, and requires less cycling on the route.
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.
More Packing Power
The Heil Linkage Packing System is a proven performer. It has no rollers, slides, or slide shoes to wear out. Smaller cylinders deliver considerably more packing power for increased payloads.
