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.
