The TL-3 Lightning Loader® is the industry leading knuckleboom grapple truck. With a multitude of standard and available options, the TL-3 Lightning Loader® can be custom manufactured to fit any need. The TL-3 uses a hydraulically actuated knuckleboom with a single cylinder bucket and manifold block to keep hoses out of work areas. The most popular dump body for the TL-3 is Petersen’s HDX body. Its Hardox wear plates provide for an increased wear life and are designed to stand up to tough loads. Hardox bodies look newer longer while providing smooth sides which are also great for advertising purposes. A single operator can load, haul, and dump waste with this unit; greatly allowing for an increase of efficiency in collection times. The TL-3 is designed to reduce employee injuries associated with the physically demanding job of hand loading waste items.
