Pac-Mac RL Series Mini-Rear Loaders
Mid-Atlantic Waste Systems offers the Pac-Mac Mini-Rear Loader, designed for the collection of waste in particularly difficult-to-access and specialized areas. Not as large as the rest of the Pac-Mac family, the Mini-Rear Loader is more maneuverable and able to access areas that the larger equipment cannot. Smaller, yet powerful and as capable, the Mini-Rear Loader is frequently used on university campuses, parks and playgrounds. With 4x4 configuration, the Mini-Rear Loader is used at beaches or in snowy conditions where other trucks may have traction issues. Because of its maneuverability and short load-time, the Mini-Rear Loader is frequently used as a back-up for missed stops that the bigger trucks could not access. And the Mini-Rear Loaders are often preferred in higher revenue and upscale neighborhoods where massive waste collection equipment cannot reach. Due to the lower weight class, a CDL is not required for operation which allows for flexibility when an emergency pickup is required. The Mini-Rear Loader is excellent for training new employees who may be in the process of obtaining their CDL licensing for larger equipment.
