City of Scottsdale Arizona, Solid Waste Management Division
1970 Western Barrel-Snatcher
"The Son of Godzilla"
Historic truck #254, retired in the early 1980's, today resides at the Field Operations Corporate Yard. Its working days now done, it occasionally leaves home for shows & special events. Not only is this vehicle representative of the landmark development of automated collection systems, it is in all probability the only surviving Western Full-Pak body and Diamond Reo CF-5542 chassis.
