Get up close with one of the strongest side loaders in the industry. The AutoReach® Automated Side Loader is equipped with an arm lift capacity of 2,000 pounds. It’s also the only side loader in the industry that can reach side-to-side, as well as out.

The innovative design of the AutoReach arm enables it to articulate side-to-side in an 8-foot arc, making obstacles easier to manage. The arm’s grabber assembly can easily grasp cans from 30 to 110 gallons and optional extended fingers can handle cans up to 300 gallons.

To add to the benefits of this unique side loader, all functions can be operated at idle speed, keeping noise at a minimum and fuel consumption down.
