1979 Wayne Curbtender ASL
Starting out as a manufacturer of small, satellite refuse truck bodies, Wayne Engineering became one of the very first companies to market a packaged automated side loader (ASL), including the loading arm and packer body. Introduced after the Wayne Gruncher, the Curbtender went on to become one the most popular ASL's in the industry, and remains in production to this day.
This early example is mounted on an American LaFrance cab-forward chassis.
