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 arms. This system also has heavy duty torsion spring arms, a gantry range of 60" to 96" and a heavy duty mesh tarp included. The quality design yields lower maintenance and provides for fast, easy installation (estimated 8 hours).
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 adjustable gantry tower with a vertical range of 60" to 96". To deploy the tarp, the motor unwinds the cover from the roller while the spring loaded heavy duty steel arms move towards the back of the load. 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). Most dumpsters are 22' long, but the system works on 24' as well. If you haul multiple sizes of containers, you can set the system up for the longest container, and then let the arms hang over the back of the shorter containers, or you can get the HR2500 which has additional adjustability.
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.
