Type: Rear Loader
The Pac-Mac Mini RL Series Rear Loader Garbage Truck is designed for the collection of waste in particularly difficult-to-access and specialized areas. The Mini-Rear Loader is easier to maneuver, making it more able to access areas that larger equipment cannot. Smaller, yet just as powerful, the Mini-Rear Loader is frequently used on university campuses, parks and playgrounds. Its 4×4 configuration makes it perfect for beaches or in snowy conditions where other trucks have issues with traction.
Because of its maneuverability and short load-time, the Pac-Mac Mini RL Series Rear Loader Garbage Truck is frequently used as a back-up for missed stops that the bigger trucks could not access. They are often preferred in 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 in cases of an emergency pickup. The Mini-Rear Loader is excellent for training new employees who may be in the process of obtaining their CDL licensing for larger equipment.
