The Hillend built Powerlink delivers a high degree of durability, reliability and flexibility of use representing the top of the range in premium rear loading compactors. The loading hopper is designed with the highest level of compaction efficiency and operating volume. The modern style body features round smooth side walls which are able to withstand all types of load stress whilst at the same time gives a modern and pleasant aesthetic design appearance. The premium “Swinglink and Pivot Link System”, which characterises its working packing system, comes with connecting links to ensure lower hydraulic force and reduced stress is exerted on specific elements of the compaction system compared to that of a classical “Slide and Pack” sliding block mechanism. This ensures that the hydraulic force exerted is only applied to compaction of the waste, thus achieving lower wear rates and longer life of all components situated in the tailgate. By incorporating modern hydraulic solutions the Powerlink offers a high level of performance, reduced servicing downtime and minimising routine maintenance costs thus reducing its impact to the environment. This Hillend built equipment is available in a complete range of body volumes, from 16 to 26 m3 which enables it to fit a wide range of chassis cab variants to suit the needs of its customers.
