Collection routes can be unpredictable when it comes to what’s sitting next to the curb. The McNeilus Manual/Automated (MA) Side Loader takes out some of the guesswork with an automated arm plus a manual loading mechanism that makes it the most flexible refuse truck on the market.

The simple-to-operate arm handles residential cans efficiently. The low-height hopper sill also allows the operator to manually throw in the “little extras” that often come with residential trash collection routes. And an optional cart tipper lets you collect from both sides of the street.

This versatile vehicle can also be ordered without the arm as a strictly manual side loader. The drop frame and lower hopper sill make it ideal for single-man routes or recycling routes, allowing the operator to easily and efficiently dump totes.
