McNeilus introduces latitude integration: simplified residential collection
McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., has introduced the Latitude Integration residential collection system. Meridian Front Loaders with Latitude Integration can connect with any brand of front loader residential container, including Perkins automated container, Curotto-Can Automated Carry Can, Bayne carry cans, and McNeilus’ own Street Smart Carry Can.
“As McNeilus continues to innovate, we have focused in on the residential collection market,” said Grant Wildgrube, McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing product manager-front loaders & CNG. “The addition of Latitude Integration is just one of the great innovations our efforts have produced. We’ve also announced that McNeilus is the exclusive distributor of Perkins automated cans, providing our customers with another option for automated front loader collection.”
From cab to tailgate, Latitude Integration residential collection makes connection and operation with any brand of front loader residential container easier. A sensor system on the body, arms and forks provide operator assurance and premier functionality. Single joystick controls operate the arms and forks, as well as automated container functions. Tapping a single button allows the operator to toggle from the automated dump cycle to container operation. The proportional controls are also smoother and more responsive to the operator.
McNeilus CODE and its in-cab controls display make it easier to see which functions are activated and offer superior troubleshooting capabilities. As another simplified innovation, the sensor system on the body, arms and forks is easier to access and service because the sensors are external to the hydraulic cylinders.
With flexibility in mind, Latitude Integration residential collection, allows residential controls to be connected on both sides in dual-drive front loaders. The package also combines with several optional features, including Auto Level, which automatically levels the residential container during the dump cycle, and Cab Protection, which prevents the operator from inadvertently rolling the container into the cab, eliminating costly damage.
