Why A Grapple Truck for Bulky Waste?

Bulky Waste Collection
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?

  • Furniture – Mattresses, Couches, Chairs, Bed frames
  • Appliances – Refrigerators, Washers and Dryers, Ovens

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.
