Curbtender PowerPak Side Loader
In 1978, the Curbtender was introduced as the Waste Industry’s first commercially produced automated side loader and has maintained its status as the industry standard bearer ever since. Now called the PowerPak, the ASL features up to 1,000 pounds per cubic yard compaction and the legendary 2,000 pound rated “PowerArm” lifting device. In addition, a 5-Year arm structural warranty comes standard on the PowerArm and is unrivaled by any competitor. As a result, the PowerPak continues to be on the forefront of automated waste collection due to its reliable electronics and efficient hydraulic controls.
The PowerPak comes standard with the Power Arm as well as a high compaction packing panel. The Power Arm is our traditional PowerPak arm with a capacity to lift up to 2,000 pounds along with a 5 year structural warranty. Furthermore, it is precision welded by a robotic welder to ensure perfect weld penetration and enhance durability. The packer panel compacts trash at up to 1,000 pounds per cubic yard. It also features robust follower panels that allow trash to be dumped while the packer is still in the body of the PowerPak. Finally, Hardox 450 steel is found extensively throughout the PowerPak body, hopper, and the arm.
Customers love the wide array of body options available to make the PowerPak fit their operation. Options include body sizes from 16 cubic yard to 31 cubic yard, full eject or tip-to-dump, regular or large commercial gripper arms, and manual or air cylinder controlled hopper covers. Moreover, there are dozens of lighting options, auto lubrication packages, scale systems, and steel liner kits to extend the life of the hopper and body.
