15 years of “On-the-Route” Development

The Curotto-Can designs and manufactures automated carry cans for refuse collection vehicles in the solid waste and recycling industry. We are focused on delivering reliable solutions that enhance productivity and make a positive impact on our customers’ bottom line.

  • Provides the best gripper system for heavy carts without damaging cart bar pockets
  • Positive lock system prevents carts from being lost in the hopper
  • Mounted lower and forward on the fork tube to eliminate interference issues and protect the top of the packer blade and canopy from damage due to collision
