Heil says it’s made big improvements to its smallest side loader


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.
