Amrep introduces rear-load refuse truck

New truck provides ease of maintenance, ownership and extended durability.


Amrep, a North American manufacturer of waste hauling equipment which is owned by Wastequip that is based in Charlotte, North Carolina, has released a new rear-load refuse truck. According to a news release from Amrep, the rear-load refuse truck is equipped with a Hardox AR500 and AR450 steel body, making it one of the toughest rear-load truck bodies on the market.

The rear-load design has been proven to require less overall maintenance resulting in a savings that can exceed $1,200 per month. Amrep reports that the rear-load truck offers greater control over contamination of recycled content—with a rear-load refuse truck, haulers have the option to examine and sort through content, opposed to an automated side loader (ASL) model, where the driver never leaves the cab.

“The demand for rear-load trucks has been consistent for many years now,” says Rob Strange, director of refuse body sales for Amrep across North America. “This type of truck provides great benefit to many haulers, and we’re excited for the engineering and technology we’ve implemented in our new product.”

Regular maintenance is crucial to any vehicle’s longevity, and occasional breakdowns are part of life for hardworking trucks. With the Amrep rear-load truck, haulers receive the best in parts, service, maintenance and repair through Wastequip WRX and Amrep’s Wastebuilt brands.

Amrep offers finance options for companies of all sizes, from independent operators to national haulers. According to Amrep, these options provide financial flexibility that helps customers obtain the equipment they need quickly. Amrep and Wastequip finance options consist of a fast and easy application process, preserves cash and credit lines, rapid credit approval, competitive rates and 100 percent financing.
