In 1978, the Curbtender was the first commercially produced automated side loader in the U.S. Waste Industry and has maintained its status as the industry standard bearer ever since. Now called the PowerPak, it continues to be on the forefront of automated waste collection due to its high compaction, legendary Power Arm, unrivaled standard warranties, reliable electronics and efficient hydraulic controls.
PowerPak features a high compaction packing panel and can quickly complete its pack cycle in as little as 16-20 seconds. Robust follower panels that allow trash to be dumped while the packer is still in the body of the PowerPak.
PowerPak leads the pack with a compaction rating as high as 1,000 pounds per cubic yard when properly spec’d.
PowerPak can be equipped with many available options such as:
The Power Arm has the capacity to lift up to 2,000 pounds and comes with a standard 5 year structural warranty. Lifting 300 gallon containers are no problem with the Power Arm. It is precision welded by a robotic welder to ensure perfect weld penetration and enhance durability.
PowerPak is available in body sizes ranging from 16 to 31 cubic yard models. 5 year body structural warranties come standard on the PowerPak.
PowerPak is available in full eject models. Full eject models are ideally suited for haulers that regularly dump at landfills or any hauler looking to maximize recycling loads.
PowerPak is available in tip-to-dump models. Tip-to-dump models offer a faster packing cycle, are lighter weight and have lower cost packing cylinders. There is less maintenance needed for tip-to-dump models than full eject models.
PowerPak comes standard with electronic proportional controls (EPC) and is a very popular control system with our customers. This feature-rich system allows smoother arm operation, driver customization, and on-board diagnostics. Taking a step into the digital age doesn’t require sacrificing reliability either. PowerPak’s EPC system features a standard 5-Year warranty on operational controls.
Ever have cardboard and other bulky items get stuck in the cart? Of course you have. That’s why we have a cart shake button integrated into Curbtender’s joystick. One tap during the lift sequence automatically instructs the system to initiate the shake feature and jostle that debris free.
Curbtender implements auto dumping features standard. This reduces the learning curve, simplifies operation, and minimizes the operator’s hand motions.
