Big Truck Rental Lands McNeilus’s Latest Automation Innovation: Zero Radius™ with CartSeeker

Tampa, FL (August 9, 2021) – Big Truck Rental (BTR), North America’s top source for essential services rental trucks, has purchased a new innovation featured at Waste Expo from McNeilus® Truck and Manufacturing: the Zero Radius™ Side Loader with CartSeeker Curbside Automation. 

The truck took the spotlight in the McNeilus booth during the industry’s largest trade show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 28-30. The show allowed customers, partners and suppliers to collaborate together in person for the first time in more than a year. Big Truck Rental took advantage of this opportunity to learn about McNeilus’s recent advances, especially with heavy duty truck technology and automation, and picked up the latest in high-tech, simplified refuse collection vehicles.  

“We are an innovative and technology-focused organization, and the addition of the McNeilus Zero Radius Automated Side Loader sweetens our rental offerings,” said Zach Martin, President of Big Truck Rental. “This truck’s recent enhancements, including the CartSeeker Curbside Automation technology, allow us to put leading-edge technology in front of our customers. The truck is ready to go to work, so folks should reach out to BTR if they’re interested in trying it out.”

“We’re thrilled that our top-selling side loader with this innovative technology will be running with one of our loyal partners, BTR,” said Matt McLeish, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing. “Our Zero Radius Side Loader has also recently been enhanced with several field-proven upgrades, and we’re excited to get them in the hands of our customers.” 

BTR is the industry’s top nationally serviced and maintained rental fleet, which includes front loaders, side loaders, rear loaders, grapple trucks, roll-off garbage trucks, and terminal tractors.

CartSeeker Curbside Automation
McNeilus has partnered with Eagle Vision Systems to offer its patented, AI-based CartSeeker Curbside Automation. This cart-recognition technology identifies and locates curbside waste carts and fully automates the operation of the truck’s robotic lift arm without joystick manipulation. This helps with cycle times, training time, safety, predictable scheduling and maintenance.   

Zero Radius Automated Side Loader
CartSeeker is included in McNeilus’s latest enhancements for its Zero Radius Automated Side Loader, which features the largest hopper available of any side loader on the market and an extremely fast pack cycle.

This side loader offers an innovative zero-radius operation to combat clearance issues, narrow streets, and alleyways. The arm reaches, rather than swings, out to grab cans from 30 to 110 gallons. The McNeilus CODE™ system provides complete vehicle diagnostics, and the Zero Radius is also now available with Tailgate CNG. This easy-to-service, efficient CNG system is field-tested and stands up to the demands of refuse collection.

This vehicle’s durable design includes arm carriage enhancements, upgraded finger pins and finger weldments bushings. The new bolt-on wind guards mean you can replace them as often as needed. Maintenance and servicing are now easier, too, thanks to a larger access door on the truck’s street side. McNeilus CODE software updates further enhance operator experience and help improve ease of training.
