Petersen Industries, Inc., now offers the Route Assistant™ as an option for their legendary TL-3 loader. It incorporates a side-loading trough to the front of the dump body and can be a full-trough system or half-trough and cart tipper. The Route Assistant™ option truly makes the TL-3 the Jack-of-all-trades loader. The trough can be used to quickly pick up small piles of debris by hand and the cart tipper can be used for missed cans on the route. It is available on a standard or stand-up-right-hand-drive chassis.
