Diamondback - Rear Loader

BOLD AND READY TO STRIKE

The Best Materials And Features In A Compact Profile

The New Way® Diamondback Rear Loader refuse truck's quality in workmanship and raw materials differentiates it from the competition. This compact, low-profile garbage truck with a low load-sill threshold has a compaction rate of approximately 800 lb. per yd³ on the standard unit and up to approximately 1,000 lbs per yd³ on the HC Model.

When searching for quality, affordability and maneuverability to service residential and park routes, the Diamondback refuse truck is the answer. It is available in 6 or 8 yd³ capacities, and is adaptable to all residential cart tippers.

The Diamondback is lethal to the competition as it comes fully equipped with a standard range of features that are merely options on most other units, including a rear-vision camera and two-year cylinder warranty.
