The Advantages of Heil Garbage Trucks

When you work in the commercial trucking industry for a long time, there are some brands you come to trust the most. Just like how you might have a favorite manufacturer for your personal automobile, we’ve come to prefer some manufacturers over others when it comes to the garbage trucks we rent. As a business, we have to be very selective with what models and vehicles we provide to our customers, as every truck we send out has our reputation riding on it. That’s why Heil is one of the manufacturers we have the strongest confidence in, thanks to their versatility and reliability.

A Wide Range of Options

One of the greatest advantages of using Heil garbage trucks is the versatility across their product line. Heil offers front loaders, side loaders, and rear loaders for both residential and commercial applications, ensuring that no matter what collection routes you manage, a Heil truck can handle it. Heil trucks also come in a range of compaction capacities and body sizes, ranging from 20 to 32 square yards.

Thanks to our flexible short-term rental contracts, you can experiment with various models to find exactly what your company needs without having to commit to a full purchase.

Operational Capabilities

Heil garbage trucks don’t sacrifice performance for the sake of such flexibility, however. Heil’s automated side loaders, for instance, boast lift capacities of up to 1,600 pounds, cycle times as short as 8 seconds, and arms reaching up to 9 feet, making them some of the fastest and most efficient trash collectors in their class. Heil’s front loaders, meanwhile, are capable of packing up to 117,000 pounds per cubic yard, allowing them to haul the largest payloads possible under law.


One of the biggest setbacks a business in the waste industry can face is downtime due to truck maintenance. While anything with wheels will need to be serviced at some point or another, Heil’s trucks are respected for their longevity and durability. Heil’s patents and design features, such as Shur-Lock tailgate locks, double-walled and lapped hopper sides, and interlaced ladder subfloors all help to make their garbage trucks some of the most resilient vehicles available on the market today.

If you’re planning on adding new vehicles to your commercial waste management fleet, consider a garbage truck rental from Big Truck Rental. We offer a full range of commercial refuse management vehicles, including front, rear, and side loaders, with both short- and long-term rental agreements. With one of our rentals, you can add a new garbage truck to your fleet without having to commit to a full purchase immediately. If you end up liking the vehicle enough, we also have rent-to-purchase options available for many of our trucks. Give us a call today and see how we can help you with your trucking needs!
