Modern garbage trucks, even those from the same manufacturer, can operate very differently. Each truck requires time behind the wheel to really get comfortable with the operation fundamentals. The McNeilus garbage trucks are no exception. Some functions, such as a cart tipper for residential pickups and a container tipper kick bar for commercial waste, are specific to the McNeilus Standard Rear Loader.

Here are some resources that will help first-time users and experienced operators alike hit the road with confidence behind the wheel of a rear loader.
