The Heil Half/Pack® Odyssey Residential Front Load Garbage Truck handles residential routes effortlessly. The optional, integrated CNrG system moves Odyssey’s CNG tanks from the roof to the tailgate, making it lower and offering extended range without split-system expense. It is also available with the traditional top-mount CNG system. No other residential front-loader features Odyssey’s smart design, with all of its systems working together to reduce the total cost of operation. It’s more efficient, easier to operate, easier to service, and less likely to need service in the first place.

Available in 20 – 32 yards, with a large 12 Yard Hopper providing 32 – 44 Cubic Yard capacity, the Heil Half/Pack® Odyssey Residential Front Load Garbage Truck features a refined hydraulic and electronic control system for maximum efficiency, reliability and precise control. The Commercial Odyssey Front Load Garbage Truck also has a single, easy-to-use joystick that requires minimal effort to operate, which saves time and increases productivity.
