PowerTrak Commercial Plus offers larger legal loads
Heil Environmental has introduced the PowerTrak Commercial Plus high-compaction tag axle rear loader, which lets haulers maximize productivity by carrying the largest legal loads – leveraging its compaction of up to 1,200 pounds per cubic yard – in areas with stringent weight restric-tions.The heart of this commercial-grade refuse and recycling collection vehicle is its patented dual track packing system, which reduces friction, improves cycle times and increases the pressure exerted directly into the load, for greater payload density with less wear and superior weight distribution. The PowerTrak Commercial Plus has a single tag axle and is available with an optional pusher axle. Heil’s unique design mounts the tag axle to the chassis frame rail, which makes the vehicle more structurally sound and durable than integrating the tag axle into the tailgate. It also enables the PowerTrak Commercial Plus to maintain a 3.64 cubic yard hopper. Rear loaders that integrate the tag axle into the tailgate may sacrifice nearly 50 percent of their hopper volume.
