HalfPack Freedom
As customers demand larger legal payloads without jeopardizing durability and dependability, Heil engineers have done it again. By using the field-proven lightweight Half/Pack Sierra as the base, and substituting alternative materials such as aluminum and composites for the ancillary body components, Heil’s Half/Pack Freedom is the lightest, most durable front loader ever. It is an ideal refuse collection vehicle for areas with stringent weight restrictions and for haulers who want to transport the largest legal payload without the worry of incurring overweight citations. The Half/Pack Freedom weighs only 15,000 pounds, which is 25% lighter than a standard Half/Pack and 1,700 pounds lighter than the lightweight Half/Pack Sierra. The Freedom can carry 11+ tons of legal payload in its 28 cubic yard body – the largest legal payload – and features a 12 cubic yard hopper and an arm lifting capacity of 8,000 pounds. To ensure the Half/Pack Freedom front loader maintains its long-term durability, we have added an innovative load-control system to the unit called Heil’s Optimal Payload System™ or HOPS™. HOPS uses axle scales, accurate to within 2%, to determine the vehicle’s gross weight. When a driver is on route collecting containers and the gross vehicle weight nears the maximum legal weight (or a preset allowable weight), this exclusive, patent-pending system warns the operator with audio and visual signals inside the cab. Once the HOPS warning signals occur, the driver can continue collecting containers only until the gross vehicle weight reaches the maximum allowable weight. Then, HOPS prevents the operator from collecting any additional containers. Using HOPS, the driver always knows the weight of his refuse collection truck without the worry of exceeding the specified maximum allowable weight. By adding the Half/Pack Freedom front loader to your fleet, you can not only eliminate overweight fines, but also improve fuel efficiency by up to six percent and reduce tire wear by up to seven percent. In addition, the lighter vehicle weight combined with properly sized payloads can extend the life of the Half/Pack Freedom by up to four years over standard estimates.
