The front loading truck is equipped with automated forks on the front which the driver carefully aligns with sleeves on the waste container using a joystick or a set of levers. The waste container is then lifted over the truck. Once it gets to the top the container is then flipped upside down and the waste or recyclable material is emptied into the vehicle's hopper. Vertical clearance is therefore very important for the container placement. Once the waste is dumped, it is compacted by a hydraulically-powered moving wall that oscillates backwards and forwards to push the waste to the rear of the vehicle. When the body is full and ready to be unloaded, the compaction wall moves all the way to the rear of the body, ejecting it via an open tailgate.
Front Loading Truck
The frontload truck is very efficient and has greatly improved safety compared to a rear load truck. It allows the container to be picked up and emptied without the driver getting out of the truck or having to manually move the heavy container, thus eliminating the chance of injury.
