The DuraPack Python automated side loader combines two proven products in one high-performance package — the DuraPack body, which is famous for its toughness and productivity, and the patented Python automated arm, which is faster, smoother, and longerlasting than any other.
The DuraPack Python’s arm has an 8-second lift cycle. That can save you up to 4 seconds per stop – and up to 1 hour per day – delivering a fiscal savings of more than $15,000 per truck every year! You don’t have to wait for the hopper to catch up with a load, either, because the Python’s follower panel enables continuous dumping. Twin packing cylinders deliver outstanding payloads, so you can collect more homes with fewer trips to the disposal site.
The Python’s arm features cushioned cylinders for action that’s as smooth as a snake, saving wear and tear on the lift arm and the chassis. The Python’s unique lift geometry also prevents spillage and enables the arm to return carts with the lids closed every time.
Heil’s Operate-in-Gear-at-Idle System comes standard on the DuraPack Python. It is designed to reduce wear on the lift assembly, chassis, engine, and transmission. Plus, it greatly reduces noise — a benefit to operators and customers alike.
