SAT3 - Satellite Collection Unit - 3 Yard Capacity

The smallest of the Perkins SAT series, the SAT3 offers a low profile design with capabilities of collecting 3 cubic yards of material. Available with any Perkins lifter style as well as the easy to use mess tarp. Additional, the ability to remove the entire unit saves time and money by not having to fully devote a vehicle to the usage of the SAT3. The SAT3 allows collection or distribution of 3 cubic yards of material (up to 2,000 lbs) using a standard 8' pickup truck.   Ordinary pickup trucks can access areas regular garbage trucks cannot.  Use the SAT3 in state parks, camping and beach locations, remote areas, missed pick-ups, food waste and organics collection, landscaping, gravel, soil and compost delivery, recycling programs, facility maintenance and special events. For further information and pricing please contact your regional sales representative. The Satellite System features your choice of cart lifter with US hooks or grabber-arm style.  The grabber arm lifter can lift a variety of container types, from 96 gallon carts to 55 gallon barrels.  Bins may be up to 400 lbs and cycle up and down in approximately 8 seconds. The SAT3 runs on 12vdc at approximately 250 amp load.  Installation is simple requiring installing a few permanently mounted brackets.
