Organics automated side loader with dual-purpose performance
Refuse collectors envision a future in which zero waste is deposited into landfills. With an eye fixed firmly on that future, New Way® leads the industry with the introduction of the first auger-driven organics collection truck in North America, the New Way ROTO PAC®.
Organics on Monday, municipal solid waste (MSW) on Tuesday—with ROTO PAC®’s dual-purpose waste collection capabilities, gone are the days of maintaining separate trucks to handle a community’s waste management needs. As the first side loader refuse truck that works as equally well with MSW as it does with organics refuse collection, the dual-purpose New Way ROTO PAC® is designed for operational flexibility.
The New Way ROTO PAC®‘s self-cleaning auger not only more efficiently compacts organic materials, such as grass clipping and food waste, but will automatically reverse in the event of a jam. The 23,000 lbs of auger torque makes quick work of compaction and self-cleaning, eliminating down time to clean out behind the packer RAM. The automated arm has a 12-foot reach and can easily manage up to 500 lbs at maximum extension.
Add to that, a body up to 27 yd³, the highest legal payload in the industry of 25,000 lbs, reduced cylinder maintenance thanks to the self-cleaning auger, and a liquid-tight hopper up to 40-inches high, and you have the most innovative, adaptable, and futuristic dual-purpose side loader waste collection truck available on the market today.
