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.
First Gear Trucks (READ DESCRIPTION!)
Here are my first gear trucks! Hope you like the video. Most of these
trucks have been made by me. Like the Curbtender and Scorpion. I did modify
that Ray Bros. hopper to made it shorter. I will eventually have an Amrep
octo in my fleet. This is probably going to be my only FG video. Tell me
which was you favorite truck!
NOTE: I am stopping voting since I feel like it is wrecking the surprise of
what will come next.
Hope you enjoyed the video!
And Jaccob, if you see this, I hope you like the Curbtender and scorpion!

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

Dempster Recycle One on Commercial Recycling
First off, we have a Dempster Recycle One on a Volvo WXLL chassis emptying
commercial recycling bins at Park Middle School and Kennewick High School.
Then there's a Dempster Recycle One on a WhiteGMC WXLL chassis dumping
curbside recyclables at the recycle center, and the Volvo WXLL Dempster
Recycle One dumps off the commercial recycling at the recycle center!
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!
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
This video showcases the main trucks used for residential garbage and
recycling collection in Kennewick, WA. First up we have a Wittke Starlight
Front Loader on a Freightliner Condor chassis, outfitted with a Curotto Can
II. Waste Management runs two of these in Kennewick. They were purchased in
2002/2003 to experiment with automated collection. The next truck in the
video is a McNeilus M/A with the optional automated arm, mounted on a
Freightliner Condor chassis. After success with the Curotto Can's,
Kennewick went fully automated in 2005. Waste Management now runs 5
McNeilus M/A's on Freightliner Condors in Kennewick. The last truck in this
video is a Dempster Recycle One mounted on a WhiteGMC Xpeditor WXLL
chassis. Kennewick has been running two of these for recycling for at least
18 years now. The one featured in this video is a spare truck, and has
hoppers on both sides of the body. The two regular Dempster Recycle One's
in Kennewick only have hoppers on the curb side. Any questions, leave them
down below in the comments. Be sure to "like"/favorite/comment and most
Garbage Day (2011) Part 1
Heres a compilation of just some of the footage from Jareds house over the
summer! There could be 3 parts, all I know is about 3 weeks worth got
deleted somehow seeing as I only missed 2 weeks, but dont have 5 weeks
worth of footage! dang! Oh well. Still likely to be a 3 part series dues to
the fact I'm only on part 1 and have a lot to go. Yes, we lost a few
'soldiers' this summer, one of which was a 1982 Zarn, but hey, we put them
out nowing they might fall in. Not the drivers fault. Hes one of the nicest
guys around so dont attack him for not getting it out. Its againt company
policy for any driver to get in the hopper for any reason. Well, enjoy! I
think this is the longest video I've uploaded so far.
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.

Adventures With Shane: Heil DuraPack Half/Pack Front Loader Dumping at Clayton Ward Recycling Co.
Here is a Waste Management of Kennewick Heil DuraPack Half/Pack
Front-Loader on a Volvo WX64 chassis dumping off a load of newspaper at
Clayton Ward Recycling Co. in Kennewick, WA. The newspaper is from
Newspaper Only dumpsters at recycling drop points all over Kennewick and
Richland. They only get dumped about once a month or so, so this was a
really rare catch here! Enjoy the footage!
