Waste vehicles are constantly moving, stopping, and going on a dime between houses, apartments, businesses, and industrial complexes to pick up and haul away trash. Often referred to as lifters, cart lifters, bin lifters, or cart tippers, these devices are designed and engineered to improve the everyday efficiency of garbage collection, minimize downtime, and increase productivity. When buying a bin lifter, several factors should be considered before making a final purchase, increasing efficiency, and reducing work-related injuries.
