Atlas Lightning Loader – Finally, since designed for the heaviest of application, the Atlas can handle the toughest of jobs. With 360 degrees of boom rotation and unparalleled speed of operation, this is the ideal truck for those who must do bulk or debris pickup. While a great unit for daily collections, we always see a surge in demand around storms, natural disasters, and cleanup seasons.
