PT 1000

With its 15-second cycle time, reload time of less than 6 seconds and its and large, 3 yd3 capacity hopper, this robust rear load garbage truck is the key to optimizing productivity on residential and commercial routes.

Heil’s surprisingly affordable PT 1000 will change your thinking about rear loader performance. We put more than 60 years of Heil rear loader know-how and experience into a refuse collection vehicle that delivers the fastest cycle time in its class, an outstanding payload, and a best-in-class hopper. This truck also fits comfortably into today’s increasingly restricted budgets.

Beneath its sleek exterior, the PT 1000 is a no-nonsense machine that will outperform anything else in its class. It offers a 15-second cycle time and a reload time of less than 6 seconds, with packing forces that take full advantage of Heil’s experience in high-pressure hydraulics and lighter weight, high-tensile steel construction.

The PT 1000 features a large 3 cubic yard hopper that is the best in its class, making it the ideal truck for those occasional commercial garbage pick-ups. It can be equipped with a variety of container handling devices to suit just about any collection need. It also offers a payload density of up to 1,000 pounds per cubic yard, and a one-piece body sidewall that not only looks better, but also is easier to wash and maintain, resists rust and corrosion, and provides a smooth surface for signage.

The PT 1000 is available in 18- and 20-yard single axle models — both bodies are Federal Excise Tax (FET) exempt.
