This steel system is for multi-axle roll-off trucks that carry containers from 16' to 24' in length. The most economical automatic tarping system offered for these trucks, the HR1500PTO Econocover comes with an adjustable gantry, right angle direct drive hydraulic motor and torsion spring-activated pivot arms. Your options include reinforced, unbreakable steel or aluminum pivot arms. This system also has heavy duty torsion spring arms, a gantry range of 60" to 96" and a heavy duty mesh tarp. The quality design yields lower maintenance and provides for fast, easy installation (estimated 8 hours). If you are looking for a heavier duty system with more versatility, check out the HR2500 Medium-Duty Roll Off Tarp System with adjustable gantry and sliding arms!
The Econocover Advantage
The HR1500PTO uses your truck's hydraulic system and is powered by our right angle hydraulic direct-drive motor/gearbox combo. The roller assembly is mounted to the hydraulically-powered adjustable gantry with the vertical range of 60" to 96". To deploy the tarp, the motor unwinds the cover from the roller while the torsion-spring powered pivot arms move to cover the load. This model comes with a pivot arm of Heavy Duty Steel Tubing. The standard tarp for this system is the 9' wide expandable Heavy Duty Mesh. This fixed-arm system is an excellent choice when hauling the same sized containers (length and height). The tarp is housed in a hydraulic gantry that moves vertically from 60 to 96 inches. 99% of all dumpsters are 22' long; some of the newer ones are 24'. This system will work with both; if you work with different sizes of containers, set up your system (when you're initially installing it) to accommodate the biggest container; the arms will just hang over on the smaller ones.
Notes on Adjustable Gantry:
The purpose of the adjustable gantry is to extend the life of the tarp. It allows you to gently lower the tarp over your load instead of dragging it across, which will significantly reduce damage and wear. All gantries, telescopic or fixed, require 10" of clearance for the roller rest, though a fixed gantry can sometimes be modified for limited clearance.
NOTE: Tray requires 10 to 12 inches space behind cab.
