The Leach Alpha-III

The Leach™ Alpha-III allows you to collect more refuse per cubic yard than any other truck. Its diamond-shape ejection panel combined with its curved body technology guarantee loads are evenly distributed and that available volume is fully maximized.

By avoiding refuse pre-compaction in the hopper, we ensure your truck will not require expensive floor repairs. Proven time and time again, anything you throw in this truck, from everyday refuse to big bulky items, the Alpha-III will crush it and put it in its place. Suitable for residential and commercial collection, the Leach Alpha-III offers power and versatility at the same time.
