Wittke Featherweight Front Loader

A Heavy Hitter on a Light Platform

Optimized weight front loader designed to maximize the legal payload of your residential & recycling routes. The Featherweight is low weight but it’s built strong. The Wittke front loader’s tailgate closes straight down and locks without any added friction, preventing stress and damage to the tailgate seal, thus improving its longevity. The rock-solid design optimizes seal longevity, ensuring no vertical movement is required. Wittke arms provide quick and smooth lifting with a high-flow Muncie pump operating at 60 gallons/min. Packing and arm cycle takes 18-20 sec and 12-14 sec respectively, improving productivity by 20 min/day. The “work-at-idle” feature ensures quiet collection without compromising speed or compaction.
