ZR™ Side Loader

The McNeilus® Zero Radius (ZR) Automated Side Loader arm now offers several enhancements for a smoother, even more productive route.

With a 12-foot extended reach option, drivers can more efficiently navigate cul-de-sacs and other obstructions like parked cars. And that’s just the start. The ZR has added a simplified hydraulic design, new components, and redesigned routings. Other advances include structural body upgrades, solid steel rungs on the mast, new carriage rollers, and an improved joystick – all backed by a new extended warranty.

It’s all designed to improve performance, simplify maintenance, and strengthen reliability.
