The City of Cedar Rapids has received a new Petersen Lightning Loader grapple loader. The Lightning Loader, manufactured by Petersen Industries, and purchased from Mid-Iowa Solid Waste Equipment in Des Moines, is a chassis-mounted loader system that is designed to pick up oversized waste items like brush, logs, furniture and appliances.
The Petersen Lightning Loader is a versatile unit that can be used for many applications. It can pick up almost anything, and can be used for everyday waste pickup and to clean up storm/flood damage. The truck is operated by one person, but does the job of a team, loading, hauling and dumping trash.
Some common uses of the Lightning Loader include:
- Brush Removal
- Storm Debris Cleanup
- Bulky Trash Collection
- Sidewalk Removal
- Illegal Dumpsite Cleanup
- Container Transport
With the Lightning Loader, the City of Cedar Rapids can tackle bulky waste removal in a lot less time, with a lot less strain on operators back from heavy lifting. Lightning Loaders are known worldwide for safe and efficient waste collection, making even the toughest jobs easier.
The City is excited to put its new equipment to work to clean up the city after the recent flooding, and to make our planet a cleaner place.
