Plentiful research shows that vehicle weight is the main determining factor in the deterioration of road surfaces by vehicles. These effects are multiplied when combined with frequent stopping and turning. With most garbage trucks weighing from 40k - 60k lbs while working, it is no surprise that they are one of the largest contributors to wear and tear on residential roads. Even Titan's heaviest trucks average around half the weight of our competitors' trucks. Our single rear axle trucks eliminate the destructive "tire scrub" of tandem axle trucks that is especially damaging to cul-de-sacs. All of our trucks are single rear axle trucks that weigh less than 26,000 lbs empty. If you want to preserve your community streets and/or save money on your private road maintenance, Titan is the clear choice for you.
