Here is a truck that is scary slow even when he gets it way up in revs. But still leaves the hopper fast enough to flip lids! Well enjoy. I would have gotten more if I was able to. After a short bit, he turned the corner and was never to be found again. oh well. And before you ask.....no we didnt find the STS asl. Or even Pendpac that i hear rumors of them owning.
the start of bottle madness
remember the gap in cans in the 1 of 2 vid? its down here at my house
along with 2 OTHER neighbors' cans. again, bottles galore!!
fyi this is at my house
Garbage Trucks Unloading - Part 3
Here is the third part to the series. I tried to mix it up so that there
was a decent mix of truck types in the video, so hopefully all of you will
enjoy it. As it stands, it looks like there will be 1 more part to this
series after this. It will include a couple trucks unloading at other
locations as well.
First Gear Wittke Front-Loader Garbage Truck with Custom Accessories
Here's a video of the 1:34 scale die-cast metal Wittke Superduty front-load
garbage truck on a Mack MR chassis, made by First Gear. Shown in this video
are some custom accessories I've hand-built to go along with this superb
functional model. First up is a custom carry-can I built to ride on the
forks, enabling this truck to perform residential garbage collection
duties. After that, you'll see some of the custom scale-model dumpsters
I've built to go along with the truck. I also show the First Gear dumpster
that comes included with the truck as reference. Anyways, I hope you enjoy
this little video, I've put a lot of time and hard work into my custom
waste industry models! Any questions, feel free to ask! Thanks!
Waste Resources STS ASL with a Peterbilt 310!
On my way home from the GF's house I spotted this truck in the
neighborhood, quite to my surprise. First off, I didn't know that WR had
ASL's, secondly, I didn't know that they did residential routes. Apparently
they have only had residential routes for about a year, and I haven't
really been to Gardena for truck hunting for over a year, so that makes
sense. Plus the driver told me that this isn't the only STS ASL they have,
which of course makes me motivated to look harder. I also stumbled upon
their yard on accident, and saw a Condor/STS ASL of the newer variety, an
Autocar Pendpac, and a handful of Amrep ASL's, Amrep ASL's shocking I know,
but they were there.
Anyway, I'll add this yard to my hit list for the future. However in the
meantime, enjoy my bounty for the moment.
RARE - Ft. Myers Heil MultiPack Recycling Truck (in action) 11-23-12
At the time of this video there were only 5 known videos of the Heil
MultiPack on YouTube. This makes the 6th. I hope you all enjoy this
lengthy video showing the MultiPack in all it's glory! In the beginning of
the video you will see manual and automated loading of recycling carts and
bins. Then you will see the ASL function and at the end of the video...
well... just watch it straight through, and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
IF you absolutely must skip to the end because you are getting bored...
please don't skip past the 11:00 minute mark or you'll ruin the surprise
This truck is one of three MultiPack recycling trucks running in the City
of Ft. Myers. I took a couple hour drive to get this footage, so I really
hope everyone likes it.
NOTE: There is some driver training occurring in the video, so you may
notice some small bloopers from time to time. Every ASL driver goes
through this, no one is perfect when they are getting familiar with a new
type of truck.
Thanks for watching my videos for 4 years! It's almost fitting that I
captured such a rarely filmed truck almost exactly 4 years after shooting
my very first video. (My first video was shot on Thanksgiving day in
2008). Thank you to all my fans! Without you, this channel would not
Titusville Solid Waste (in action) Lodal ASL 8402 7-10-09
For pictures of this truck please click the following link to Flickr:
This is a City of Titusville, Florida, Department of Public Works, Solid
Waste, Lodal automated side loader number 8402 . I must say, this driver
was one of the friendliest I've ever met! He said that he really likes
driving automated and let me film his truck collecting a few stops. He
even let me film a shot of the hopper.
During the hopper shot, he was trying to explain to me that the packer will
not move unless the arm is in motion. I guess this is a safety feature on
this truck to prevent a driver from getting injured if they need to pull a
cart or other object from the hopper.
I found the driver again today (7-31-09), and asked him about the panel at
3:39, I think he called it a "sweeper panel." On the Lodal, this panel is
there to keep material in the body when the packer is all the way to the
rear of the truck, so that nothing falls behind the blade (not sure if you
know, but the Lodal packer is like a large brick). This panel swings back
and forth swinging up when the packer hits it and the panel rides along the
top of the packer as a shield to aid during dumping or extra packing.
This is the first Lodal ASL I've ever seen in person. I took a few
pictures of the driver so that he could get them from Flickr at his
Big THANK YOU to the driver on this one! I hope you can find the video and

NASA STS FL doin' Recycle
Here is an Adventures With Sean series. We unexpectidly found this STS
right when we got off the subway in LA. Both drivers were EXTREMELY cool.
Its a very well kept truck with a nice metallic siver paint scheme. Thanks
a bunch to both of the operaters for being so cool with our filming. We
plan to go back some time in the future. Maybe we will see a different
truck but I hope its the same drivers!
My Brand New Amrep Hardox ASL
Today I had a day off from work, and got to watch the one week anniversary
of this new Autocar ACX / Amrep Hardox ASL. I talked to the driver for a
little bit and he told me that he just got the truck, and was breaking it
Wittke Front Load Garbage Truck w/ Curotto Can - Garbage Collection
This was the last truck I filmed on this day, and certainly not the least
entertaining by any means. Its a fairly typical Mack LE - Wittke, but with
an older Curotto Can '1.5' as I call them.
The thing that makes this one stick out from the crowd is that its
operated in such an entertaining way. Firstly, its revved nicely which in
these condos, makes for a very cool and loud sound. Another thing is how
the driver purposely flips lids so that everyone knows where he has been.
Its a very fun truck to watch and I'm very pleased with how the video
turned out too.
Thanks to Alex for showing me around and helping me find some of the more
interesting trucks in the area. And thanks to the driver for being so
friendly towards us. I hope you all enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed
filming it (or more) :)
Thanks for watching!
