The Yardbird is used in a variety of light-duty applications, including utilities, construction and landscaping. Drop-sides are a popular choice for maximizing the vehicle’s versatility. When equipped with optional drop-sides, the Yardbird can perform the functions of a dump truck or a flat-bed, making it just as easy to load and unload large plants or pallets of construction materials as it is to haul loads of loose gravel or mulch. The Yardbird features Heil’s patented DuraClass design, with a continuous-formed body sidewall and fully enclosed top rail to provide superior resistance to moisture and corrosion. It also has Heil’s patent-pending handles for the sides which enable operators to easily close and latch them in a single motion.
