The Trackless Leaf Loader is the most advanced and efficient loading machine on the market today. Leaves are picked up at curbside, mulched and blown into a truck. Advantages include:
FASTER PICK UP, LESS PERSONNEL
Most customers, at the end of their leaf pickup, claim to be three to four weeks ahead of schedule, due to the ability of the Trackless Leaf Loader to load up to four trucks per hour and 100,000 pounds per day.
Even though leaves represent up to 20% of municipal solid wastes, States such as New Jersey and many communities have banned leaf disposal by land filling or incineration. As others follow, mulching/composting will soon become mandatory as the first step in leaf disposal or recycling.
HEAVIER LOADS AND FEWER TRIPS
Each loaded truck contains far more material, due to the leaves being mulched. Customers have reported loading 100,000 pounds per day.
Mulch can be sold or offered free of charge to landscapers and the general public for their gardens, flower beds, etc. Although the demand may not be large enough to recycle 100% of the mulch generated, the demand will increase every year, once a program is implemented.
NO BAD WEATHER DAYS
Due to the heated cab, rain, snow or cold weather does not effect the operators willingness to work. Furthermore, none of these conditions effect the Leaf Loader's ability to pick up the leaves even if they are stick or frozen to the asphalt.
NO PHYSICAL LABOUR
The operator simply stays in the cab and lets the Leaf Loader do the work. As with any job where physical demands are high, total mechanization can easily double, if not quadruple, productivity.
LESS TRAFFIC CONGESTION
The Trackless Leaf Loader and truck operator close to the curb, minimizing disturbance to traffic flow.
