The new PA7 is an innovative refuse vehicle that improves the efficiency, physical labor and safety of collecting garbage on the narrow streets of Japan where workers load 15 to 45 liter plastic trash bags by hand. It incorporates a powerful 1.37 kg / cm3 press into a compact body just 1,850 mm wide, and is ergonomically designed in many ways, which include a hopper door that can be easily opened / closed with one hand and a low loading bay just 700 mm off the ground. The rear of the truck features a stylish taillight / indicator cluster that is raised off the body above the hopper door to make it readily visible to pedestrians and other vehicles.
