TL-3 - Trash Truck Loader & Body
TL-3 - Trash Truck Loader & Body Image

Model TL-3 – Trash Truck Loader & Body

The TL-3 is our most popular and versatile unit. A single operator can load, haul and dump trash with this unit. -20 ft. boom reach includes 4 ft. telescoping extension -Lifts 3,200 lbs. when fully extended at 20 ft. -At 10 ft. maximum lift capacity is 7,100 lbs. -All-purpose anti-scalping trash bucket features low maintenance single cylinder design -Dump body sizes range between 20 and 30 cubic yards -ANSI Z245 compliant STANDARD FEATURES: 1) CONTROL OPTIONS Greaseless proportional dual walk-thru standard lever controls are operational from either side of the truck. Petersen also offers QUADSTICK® controls and stationary top mount controls with joysticks or valvehandles. 2) H-STYLE OUTRIGGERS Horizontal and vertical outriggers act independently of each other. Allows the operator to custom place around obstructions and traffic patterns. 3) BOOM-UP ALARM Notifies the operator when the boom is over legal travel height with an audible buzzer and red light. The boom-up alarm has been a standard safety feature on our equipment for over a decade. 4) MINIMAL HOSE EXPOSURE Slack hoses can snag on debris and obstructions. That’s why Petersen designed their “enclosed hose recoil system” and a bucket with no hoses below the rotator. 5) SINGLE CYLINDER BUCKET A large cylinder and manifold block keep hoses out of work areas, allowing for a stronger bite force, and ensuring that both sides always work together. 6) SCISSOR HOIST The most stable hoist available for this application. Lifts 23 tons and is power up and down. 7) WHEELBASE Petersen specifically designs their units to have the best turning radius while keeping a comfortable operator platform. WARRANTY Three year structural, one year hydraulic. Please note – there might be more standard features than listed here. Petersen Industries reserves the right to change product design and features at any time without notice. Please contact your Petersen dealer for complete features.

Atlas Lightning Loader
Atlas Lightning Loader Image

The model AL-1 Atlas Lightning Loader is a heavy-duty grapple truck mounted onto a chassis from behind the cab, equipped with Petersen’s Big Bite bucket at the end of the boom. The loader operates from a seated platform that rotates with the boom. CNG Capable.

Speed

Atlas is designed to save time in multiple areas:

  • The work-site set-up is easier and quicker with custom outrigger placement and a boom that can continuously rotate 360° degrees.
  • During operation, the variable speed pump allows you to use any combination of functions without slowing down while dumping. The dump hoist is power up and gravity down with twin multi-stage telescopic cylinders, giving us a 45% faster dump cycle.

Endurance

In this industry, it’s not only about how many hits you can take but about how long you can keep operating at peak performance. That’s why Atlas offers:

  • A state-of-the-art hydraulic and filtration system designed to keep this vital portion of the loader running as smoothly as possible.
  • Fully skinned bucket and body in Hardox 450 steel for extreme wear and tear.

Strength

Atlas delivers maximum power during all stages:

  • Lifting – Whether it’s a tree or a Suburban, our lift cylinders can handle any job.
  • Crushing – Twin cylinders on the Big Bite Bucket can make short work of the
    small stuff.
  • Dumping – We have the heaviest and most stable lifting hoist for whatever you’ll be loading throughout the day.
