Based on extensive customer input, Heil Environmental says it has updated its Retriever Satellite side loader to make it more durable, low-maintenance and operator-friendly. The Retriever Satellite is a small side loader used in parks and recreation areas, airports, tight alleys, gated communities and other routes where a full-size refuse collection vehicle won’t fit. Many customers also use it as a back-up vehicle or for collecting missed stops.
Dual hopper doors are designed to enable loading from either side, and cart lifters can be added to one or both sides for semi-automated collection. According to the company, its patented transfer system makes it possible to unload the Retriever into a full-size rear loader, minimizing trips to the disposal site.
