AutoReach Automated Side Loader


The McNeilus AutoReach Automated Side Loader with the All-Can grabber arm is the only side loader that can reach side-to-side as well as out.

Reach around the mailbox instead of lurching your truck forward. The AutoReach G2 brings a new hopper, follower, and controls to our most versatile automated platform.

The AutoReach G2 arm can swing through an 8-foot arc, bringing the tightest cul-de-sac within easy reach of our cart friendly grabber. Save your fuel, your transmission, and your sanity.
