Why A Grapple Truck for Bulky Waste?

Friday, August 10th, 2018

Every community produces some form of bulky waste. Depending on the type of waste that’s accumulated, specialized equipment and handling is needed to recover every last bit. Like a thief in the night, the waste is collected from the streets without a trace. Grapple trucks are the most crucial component that bulky waste programs are utilizing across the country.

What Qualifies as Bulky Waste?Bulky Waste Collection

  • Furniture – Mattresses, Couches, Chairs, Bed frames
  • Appliances – Refrigerators, Washers and Dryers, Ovens
  • Electronics – Computers, Monitors, Televisions
  • Nature Debris – Tree branches, Trimmings, Stumps

Which Grapple Truck Is Right for You?

To safely and efficiently collect these difficult and dangerous items you’ll need top-of-the-line equipment. Our model TL-3 is the original grapple truck that changed the game and we are continuing that tradition with the Route Assistant side loading device. Adding the Route Assistant to your TL-3 will make it truly the fasting bulk loading option available. We like to explain is simply: Use the TL-3 for the big stuff and the Route Assistant for the little stuff.

For larger and /or more urban customers, the RS-3 is specifically designed for high-speed collection in densely populated areas. Utilized in many major metropolitan centers throughout the country, the RS-3 or Rear Steer (as we call it) is the only grapple truck that allows the operator to drive the truck and operate the loader from the same seat.

Storm Debris Removal

At Petersen Industries, we recognize that clean up after a significant storm can place a strain on both the public and on City resources. We want to help you prepare for any natural disaster, by adding our grapple trucks to your fleet before storm season.

Storm Clean Up ContractorsHurricane Irma left many cities and counties in Florida scrambling to find grapple trucks to collect debris throughout their city. Some cities had private contractors lined up prior to storm season for any possible debris collection needs, only to find that when Irma left the contractors had already taken jobs in Texas cleaning up after Hurricane Harvey. Several cities and private contractors tried to find grapple trucks after the storms passed, only to find the supply did not meet the demand. Our Lightning Loaders can be used year round for your debris and bulky waste collection needs, don’t wait until after the storm passes to realize you should have a grapple truck in your inventory.

With Lightning Loaders in your fleet, you’re ready to start recovery immediately after the storm strikes- whether it is an ice storm, hurricane, or tornado. Petersen understands that a quick response is imperative so that utility trucks can reach downed power lines and utility poles.

Our Rear Steer® unit can fit into smaller spaces and clear roadways fast, allowing emergency personnel and utility trucks to pass through the streets.
