Knuckle Boom Truck - model bl-3

Model BL-3 - Knuckle Boom Loader

The Model BL-3 is a 20 ft. knuckle boom loader that is permanently mounted in front of a roll-off.  You can use your existing roll-off boxes with this system.

  • Loads into multiple containers without ever leaving the route
  • Available with walk-thru or top mounted controls
  • Accommodates most containers

The BL-3 lets you easily swap containers so your shuttle truck can do the shuttling while your
loader keeps loading.

Here Are a Few More Benefits:

Minimize Windshield Time
Your loader can work onsite all day long

Easily Swap Containers
A cable-style roll-off hoist allows for quick container swapping

Customize to the Job
Easily change container sizes to fit the day’s requirements

HYDRAULIC REQUIREMENTS FOR KNUCKLE BOOM LOADER

The BL-3 Lightning Loader® requires 18 GPM with a maximum system pressure of 2500 psi. This can be accomplished with an air controlled valve section from the hoist control valves fitted with a flow controller set to 18 GPM. The pump can also be upgraded to a tandem and the second pump section can be sized to flow 18 GPM at a preset engine rpm. Please consult a Petersen representative to determine which method best suits your truck.
