F370 REAR END LOADER SPECS

 

 

 

                                                       F370 Rear End Loader
 Available in 20, 25 and 31 Cubic Yard Bodies
 The Fanotech F-370 Rear Loader is a true high compaction, heavy duty, light weight machine designed for the high performance segment of the waste industry.
Since its introduction, Fanotech has progressively and consistently improved the product.  We can state with confidence that it is a proven quality built performer that excels in all important categories with job proven features.
Fanotech makes extensive use of high strength steels and wear resistant AR material such as Hardox, a product that we have been using for 3 decades.  Through the use of these special steels, our engineers have been able to carefully blend them into the design to increase the strength and wear resistance of certain parts resulting in an overall improved product that can be best described as a true light weight heavy duty machine.
Over the years our engineers and designers have continually dedicated time and effort in product improvement to select the best possible tough wear resistant materials, which are expertly applied to the various components to improve durability and useful life.  The same concept has been applied to the other vital components and parts such as hydraulic cylinders, valve hoses, lines, etc.
To back up our statement and reputation as a top performing product, Fanotech is offering a comprehensive warranty:
1 year complete unit
3 years body structural integrity
3 years hydraulic system
 
Extended warranty to 5 years also available
Please refer to Warranty instructions for more details.
Features of Fanotech F370 Rear End Loader
The most significant and star feature of the F-370 is the linkage type packing mechanism from which have evolved other important and very useful features.
  1. Elimination of slide type guide tracks opens the way to a more flexible tailgate design and eliminates the need for periodic replacement of slider shoes.
 
  1. The tailgate construction is lighter, eliminating much of the unwanted tailgate overhanging weight.
 
  1. Better weight distribution and lower overall weight, it pays dividends in larger legal payloads.
 
  1. It allows a rather large hopper layout, measuring 3.7 cubic yards swept volume without the weight penalty, with the bonus of better productivity.
 
  1. The quite fast 26-28 second cycle time, combined with the large hopper means top efficiency and productivity.
 
  1. Low friction and lower power demand of the linkage pack mechanism, combined with modern diesel engines, high torque output and the latest PTO drives all contribute to low RPM operation of 900 to 1100 RPM, resulting in substantial fuel cost savings.
 
  1. The F-370 tailgate pack system geometry contributed to the reputation of hard to beat top performer; job proven in the toughest conditions.
 
  1. The large hopper is very adaptable to containerized systems.
 
Linkage Type Packer System The Stabilizer A-Frame and Lower Radius Rods, guide the pack shield through a defined
path preventing contact with the tailgate side sheets,
without the need for Guide Tracks, Rollers or Shoes.
 
All the features would be worthless unless you add these attributes to the product:
 
  • Low maintenance and repair costs
 
  • High level dependability
 
  • Longevity, long life
 
  • High value retention
 
  • Low cost of ownership
Material Specifications
Body
Semi Elliptical design, all curved body sections and sides, roof and understructure for increased volumetric efficiency - higher strength and lower weight
 
Ejector:
Designed with a curved face to improve strength and volumetric efficiency.  Equipped with long life steel shoes. 3 ½” wide and 3/8” thick AR-450 material running on guide tracks.  Also equipped with AR-450 wear bars, designed and sized to last the useful life of the rear loader without replacement.
 
Tailgate: 
Constructed of AR-450 and high strength steel with 80  Yield minimum strength.
As indicated on the side layout, the materials have been selected to give the best blend of strength and durability  without the weight penalty.
 
                                                                       
Hopper:
Made exclusively from AR-450 Hardox of either ¼ or 5/16 thickness depending on final configuration and option package.
 
Packer Blade:
The face plate is curved to improve strength, made from ¼ AR-450 Hardox, includes an anti wear tip 4” wide and 3/8 Hardox
 
Other features include cushioned end and spherical bearings, pivot assemblies used in selected cylinders depending on application.
 
Oil reservoir:
Capacity 55 gallons or 209 litres, it can be installed on body front or under body, depending on chassis layout.  It is equipped with high capacity suction and return filtration.  Both filters can be replaced with no loss of hydraulic fluid.  The suction is a washable reusable element of 100 mesh equipped with shut off and multiple magnetic trap.
Return line is a 10 micron replaceable element.  Other items include as spin on breather, non vented filler cap, level indicator, and drain plug.
 
Hydraulic lines:
Hose assemblies made exclusively from Parker eliminator hose, highest rated and job proven two braid hose. 
Hoses attached to moving components are protected with a nylon tough cover.
Steel lines are sized for maximum efficiency and durability, mounted on rubber clamps.
Steel lines are run inside of longitudinal skirts and protected from the elements. Lines under body and top of roof have been eliminated.
 
Pump Drives:
Modern chassis are equipped with high torque diesels and automatic transmissions.  
Based on this premise, Fanotech has standardized on clutch type PTO’s.  That will permit packing operation at engine RPM’s rang at 900-1100 RPM resulting in low fuel consumption and low noise.
