The surprisingly affordable PT 1000 garbage truck from Heil will change your thinking about rear loader performance. Beneath its restyled and sleek exterior, the PT 1000 is a no-nonsense machine that will outperform anything else in its class – with cycle times and packing forces that take full advantage of Heil’s experience in high pressure hydraulics and lighter weight, high tensile steel construction.

The three cubic yard hopper will handle just about anything you’re likely to face on those residential routes, and the 15-second cycle time means you’ll get it done quicker. It adds up to faster loading, better payloads, and less time on the route. And that translates into lower operating costs and more profit to your bottom line.

Heil invented its first rear garbage truck loaders more than six decades ago…and we continue to invent them better, make them with greater precision, and support them with more conviction than any other manufacturer. Best of all, the new breed of Heil rear loaders are more affordable than ever. The most popular garbage trucks in action acroos the global is Heil.

It’s why more haulers go to work with Heil every day than any other brand.

3 Cubic Yard Hopper

The high lift blade geometry of the garbage truck means you’ll pack more refuse in the hopper with every cycle.
The regeneration hydraulic circuit delivers a 15- second cycle time for maximum route efficiency.
The PT 1000 can also be equipped to handle commercial containers.

Maintenance Friendly

The “quick change” ejector shoes are easily replaced without removing the ejector panel.
Other “Maintenance Friendly” designs include the frame mounted oil tank, adjustable bolt-on steps, and easily accessible hydraulic valves.

More Payload Forward In the Body

High angle mount of ejector cylinder allows panel to retract farther in the body, allowing more payload forward for bigger payloads and better weight distribution.
Packing forces move upward in the body, saving wear on floor and tracks.
Snoutless ejector does not contact tailgate.

Interlaced Subframe

Heil’s interlaced subframe is made from formed channels for extra strength.
The flat floor is a single sheet of steel with no welds to crack or break. Loads eject cleanly, and there is no trough to clean out from trash buildup.

About Heil

Leading The Way

For more than 100 years, Heil has set the standard for quality, innovation, and value. With the PT 1000, we’ve raised the bar even higher.

In Performance…

The PT 1000’s three cubic yard hopper and 15 second cycle time put it in a class by itself when it comes to performance in a mid-priced rear loader. With payloads up to 1,000 pounds per yard…well, class is adjourned.

In Durability…

When it comes to toughness, heavier isn’t always better. Heil has long known that high tensile steels perform better over the long run, allowing steel to give before it cracks or breaks. This simple concept keeps Heil refuse bodies on the job long after others have given up. PT 1000 carries on that tradition.

In Quality and Precision…

Heil’s extensive investment in robotics in recent years is paying big dividends for our customers in stronger weld strength and consistent quality. Taking full advantage of today’s technologies, Heil has also invested in laser fabricators to manufacture parts with tolerances down to mere thousandths of an inch. It means parts on your PT 1000 will fit tighter, weld better, and last longer. These same technological advances create manufacturing efficiencies, as well, that mean Heil rear loaders like the PT 1000 are surprisingly affordable.

In Customer Commitment…

“Build it right, and back it with integrity.” Julius Heil had the right idea 100 years ago, and that principle remains a guiding force today. Heil customer support is legendary, from training to technical support, to simply standing behind our product. Taking that concept to another level, Heil recently became the only American refuse body manufacturer to achieve ISO 9001 certification. From the PT 1000 to every other product we make, it’s further assurance of our long term commitment to your satisfaction.
