Half/Pack Sierra Ready for Action Out West

Heil Environmental introduces the Half/Pack Sierra western United States front loader, which offers all the features of Heil's Half/Pack front loader, with 13% less weight.

The 28-cubic-yard Half/Pack Sierra weighs 16,700 pounds versus 19,300 for the same size standard Half/Pack body. Both bodies offer payloads up to 1,200 lb/cubic yard, a packer cycle time of 22 to 26 seconds, and arm cycle times of 18 to 20 seconds.

The Half/Pack Sierra has double-wall hopper sides to protect against punctures and protrusions. Hopper sides are made with 145,000-psi steel plates for improved rigidity and durability. A curved top door better seals the hopper opening to prevent blowing debris and provide lower body height.

The Half/Pack Sierra features the Half/Pack's curved body, which is strong, easy to clean, and resistant to rust and corrosion. Body sides are constructed of 110,000-psi steel. The body's flat floor eliminates the trough that can crack and requires frequent cleaning. The Half/Pack Sierra's floor is made of 145,000-psi 400 Brinell abrasion-resistant steel plate. This unit is built on Heil's fully welded, interlaced subframe to help the body withstand stresses.

Heil's exclusive Shur-Lock hydraulic tailgate lock system enables the vehicle operator to unlock the tailgate, discharge the load, and then secure the tailgate, all without leaving the cab. The system, combined with a 68-inch vertical seal, reduces the chance of leakage while en route.
