KANN Versa-Haul Recycling Truck

Kann Recycling Truck

As the name implies, the all-welded aluminum or steel KANN Versa-Haul is an extremely versatile recycling truck. The standard Versa-Haul incorporates a multi-compartment design with curb and street side loading capabilities, adjustable height loading doors, bulkhead partitioned compartment separation and simple end dump unloading.

The KANN Versa-Haul comes in many different trailer- and chassis-mounted configurations to fit most any application. The trailer-mounted model lends itself to residential curbside as well as drop-off recycling collection programs. The chassis-mounted models are perfect for residential curbside collection programs where two or more commodities need to be collected using one operator and one truck.

The KANN Versa-Haul can be purchased either in an open- or closed-top configuration with a variety of options and features, some of the most popular of which are: adjustable bulkhead partition(s) that allows compartment volumes to be adjusted as required, semi-automated over-the-top drop-in loading, and a hydraulically-operated tailgate.
