Ease of operation and superior design are what set the Ranger ASL apart from all other automated side loaders.
Standard Wide Body design with roof mount tailgate cylinders offers more volume with the same body length.
The Bridgeport Automated Arm is the most efficient arm in the industry. It is body mounted for stability and durability. With fewer moving parts, maintenance is a breeze.
The Ranger also features a folding hopper door that allows a lower pitch-in height .
The hopper features water-tight clean out doors that are easily reached from
The Ranger CSC is the only body on the market that safely allows the automated arm to extend from within the confines of the body before it grips a cart.
Pull carts away from fences or other obstacles safely even in the tightest
The compact telescoping arm retracts inside the width of the truck so the
operator can maneuver easily between obstacles in a narrow alley or other
Easily separate carts and reduce grip/un-grip time with grippers that stow
Make your approach simple and less time consuming by trying the ‘Confined Space Collector’ on your route.
THE SPLIT BODY AUTOMATED SIDE LOADER
A body so ecology-friendly, economical and reliable, it is simply a must have for communities that are dedicated to reducing and diverting waste.
Dual forward mount hoist cylinders provide more stability to safely discharge typically uneven loads.
Body sides are tapered for easier and faster unloading of refuse and
Roof mounted tailgate cylinders allow for the maximum legal body width of 102”, increasing the capacity by 8% over competitor bodies using the same chassis spec.
The body dividing wall is encased in a structural tubing frame and partially clad in Hardox steel for superior strength.
Body options include a 50/50 splitand a 60/40 split
The versatility of manual or automated loading gives the Ranger DF its edge. Designed for the routes that need a rear loader and a side loader all rolled into one truck.
The large enclosed hopper has a loading height of 5-1/2” above the chassis frame providing the lowest possible pitch-in height on the market today. Wind doors are available to enable loading from both sides of the hopper.
The standard crusher panel helps to keep trash contained when the loading doors are open.
Bridgeport’s Automated Arm adds to the versatility of the Ranger DF with universal grips and the optional 144″ extended reach.
Taking industry innovation to a new level, Bridgeport introduces the only
compact dual arm semi-automated side loader on the market today.
But don’t let its size fool you. This is 12 or 14 cubic yards of solid muscle that is smokin’ efficient in an alley as well as on the street.
The arms are operated by an outside control box on each side of the truck.
The forward mounted hoist cylinders ensure better stability at the landfill or
The expanded metal hopper cover opens and closes at each stop to prevent debris from escaping the hopper.
The Bridgeport Ranger arm is the only automated arm in the industry suited for a lifted AWD chassis due to its unique design.
Our Off Road Ranger package can be mated with the chassis of your choice
with several different conversion packages available to suit your individual
Depending on your application, the Off Road Ranger has multiple tire options for whatever special demands your route requires!
We put a piston pump standard on every truck we make and for beach use,
we use biodegradable hydraulic oil to ensure you leave the beaches clean and safe.
The Optional Piston Pump shuts itself off when there are no functions activated and all downstream flow is stopped resulting in little to no oil leaks from hose breaks. Other advantages of the piston pump; it doesn’t require any horsepower when in the off position resulting in better fuel economy and unlike gear or vane pumps, the piston pump will stop flowing oil if a hydraulic valve gets stuck preventing system overheat.
Tapered Hoist Body With Deep Packer Penetration. The packer cylinders are designed to push the packer 20” further into the body than any competitors body. The combination of a tapered wider body and
deeper penetration means loads won’t stick when dumping. This also means the body need only be hoisted to a safe 30 degree angle. The lower dump angle is accomplished with the long forward mount hoist cylinders. The farther forward the hoist cylinders are mounted the more stability for dumping even in the roughest landfills.
Wider Body. Roof mounted tailgate cylinders allow the rear of the body to be built wider and allow for body tapering resulting in easier discharge.
Inverted Floor Cross Members allow from 60 to 90 percent more floor plate support.
Extra Wide Floor Wear Strips formed from Hardox 450 for 40% more wear surface.
Packer Improvements: Adjustable robust UHMW Wear Pads on the packer shoe guides are easily shimmed or replaced in minutes without removing the packer blade. Front mounted packer cylinder pins are
removed safely and easily from the tailgate side of the packer face. The packer follower shelf allows the operator to see if trash is coming up and over the top of the packer. The operator can stop and retract the
packer to clean off the follower as it passes under a rubber wiper in the home position.
Aluminum Canopy and Roof Access Ladder as well as Plastic Fenders provide lightweight, rust proof protection.
Advantages of Hoist Over Full Eject bodies: Simple, more efficient, powerful single stage pack cylinders. No need for a service hoist resulting in easier maintenance.
For Full Eject Enthusiasts: Longer pack cylinders mount through the faceplate for easy maintenance and a longer big stage stroke. Competitor models shift into the smaller second stage reducing the compaction
force by up to 25% at the critical packing point. Mounting the cylinders through the packer instead of behind allows Bridgeport to build the largest full eject front loader on the market today.
