There are various deposit and container systems that get containers on and off the truck. Each with the same goal but all in a different way. It is important to choose a container system that fits your truck. Not all trucks support the same system. For more information about the different container systems, please read below.
Skip loaders are a stable way of loading containers or other waste bins on and off a truck. The containers are set up and taken down with a hydraulic system in which lifting chains are attached to the two long sides of the container. This type of truck is also called a skip loader truck.
A hookloader is a system in which a hook lift is extended to place the container on a truck. The hook can grip a container, making it easy to move the container. Trucks with this system are also called a hook lift truck.
A chain system truck simply uses a chain to move containers on and off a truck. The chain system can be operated by the driver to easily grab the container. The system then pulls/drags the container into place.
A truck with a cable system is lighter than other systems. As a result, these trucks have a higher load capacity. A cable system is a variant of the chain system. Only with this system is the container pulled into place by a cable.
