The New Way® Wolverine™ is the latest innovation from New Way Trucks and joins the largest and most diverse family of refuse equipment in the industry. The Wolverine has the attributes of its larger sibling, just in a smaller package.
Although the Wolverine is a full-fledged collection vehicle, it is available in an under-CDL package, making finding and training new drivers considerably easier. Your new drivers can focus on safety, customer service, and a manageable route footprint in a smaller vehicle, and eventually graduate to a full-sized unit bringing those skills forward to a larger – yet still familiar – vehicle.
For the last 20 years, the solid waste industry focused on improving productivity. That effort translated to bigger and fewer collection routes, larger trucks, and fleet-rightsizing. Given the current CDL driver shortage, however, one shoe does not fit all markets. Hauling operators are now seeing those trends begin to reverse. There is a willingness to expand fleets with smaller collection vehicles with hopes of expanding the labor pool and drawing candidates from groups not traditionally targeted by the nation’s waste haulers. New Way Trucks is poised and ready to meet that need.
The industry’s continued shift to automation has further proven to extend an aging workforce while at the same time becoming gender neutral. Historically solid waste has been male-dominated due to the heavy lifting requirements. However, technology has solved that problem. Automation does the heavy lifting, and equipment manufacturers are designing for smaller stature, creating access to more commercial drivers in a time when driver shortages are widespread.
The New Way Sidewinder XTR™ is the best-selling Class 8 automated side-loader in the industry. It’s just a matter of time before the Wolverine becomes the most sought-after Class 6.
The industry's proven most durable arm configuration— a frame-mounted arm with a gripper that's in line with the arm— has been reinforced by New Way® engineers with heavier steel and hardware, giving you the strongest and most dependable side-loader arm ever built. It's built for the abuse of big routes and designed to keep you on the road, day in and day out.
The Sidewinder's™ ergonomic in-cab controls are specifically designed for operator comfort. Operator fatigue is decreased while productivity is boosted, putting true power at your fingertips.
The Sidewinder™ is rated for a lifespan that keeps you operating with confidence far beyond competitors' models, with significantly lower maintenance costs and minimized downtime. When you do need maintenance, our design enables super-easy access for quicker, less expensive part replacement.
The New Way® Sidewinder™ puts your fleet in a position of power. Built for punishment, your crew can keep on operating while other trucks are in the shop. So while this truck is tough, it makes one thing not so tough - the decision to add one to your fleet.
