Commercial Containers

Front Load Containers

The front load container truck is equipped with large hydraulic arms that are inserted into the container sleeves on the left and right side of the container. The driver then uses the hydraulic arms to lift the container up and over the cab and dumps the material from the container into the hopper in truck body.

Rear Load Containers

A rear load truck is equipped with a cable winch and hook to empty the large containers. The driver backs the truck up until the trunion bars on each side of the container slide into the locks on the back of the truck. A winch cable and hook is then attached to the opposite side of the container. The winch cable pivots the container up around the axis of the trunion bars to a vertical position where the material falls into the truck hopper. Once empty, the can is lowered and unhooked.

Open Top Roll-Off Containers

Open top roll-off containers are, briefly, large boxes. They get their name from the manner in which they are loaded and unloaded. In a roll-off collection system, the driver lowers the hydraulic truck rails, hooks the container with a cable hook and hoists the container onto the truck rails; the bottom of the roll-off container has guides that fit on the outside of the rails of the truck body. Once the container has been hoisted up the rails, the driver then lowers the rails until the container is parallel to the ground and flat on the back of the truck. To deliver the container, the driver lifts the truck rails and slowly releases the tension on cable so that the container slides down onto the ground. They have no compaction capabilities.
