“Grapple trucks compliment refuse fleets by making your organization a one-stop-shop for all refuse collection. It makes a multi-person job, a one-person task.

1) CONTROL OPTIONS
Greaseless proportional dual walk-thru standard lever controls are operational from either side of the truck. Petersen also offers QUADSTICK® controls and stationary top mount controls with joysticks or valvehandles.
2) H-STYLE OUTRIGGERS
Horizontal and vertical outriggers act independently of each other. Allows the operator to custom place around obstructions and traffic patterns.
3) BOOM-UP ALARM
Notifies the operator when the boom is over legal travel height with an audible buzzer and red light. The boom-up alarm has been a standard safety feature on our equipment for over a decade.
4) MINIMAL HOSE EXPOSURE
Slack hoses can snag on debris and obstructions. That’s why Petersen designed their “enclosed hose recoil system” and a bucket with no hoses below the rotator.
5) SINGLE CYLINDER BUCKET
A large cylinder and manifold block keep hoses out of work areas, allowing for a stronger bite force, and ensuring that both sides always work together.
6) SCISSOR HOIST
The most stable hoist available for this application. Lifts 23 tons and is power up and down.
Petersen specifically designs their units to have the best turning radius while keeping a comfortable operator platform.
Three year structural, one year hydraulic.
