Businesses and municipalities alike throughout Ohio, Western New York and Western Pennsylvania have relied on Refuse Equipment an­d Truck Services (RETS) since 1988.

Operating under the banner of “Local People, Great Service,” the company specializes in the sales and service of mobile and stationary equipment.

Serving the refuse and recycling industries in many ways

For over 30 years, RETS has provided site surveys as well as equipment recommendations, installations and service for compaction and baling systems throughout the tri-state area.

Adhering to the values of “Tried, Tested, and True,” the company also offers Pak-Mor Refuse Bodies. In addition, they sell, install and maintain both hooklift and cable-hoist type roll-off systems for trucks.

Recommending one brand of hydraulic hook lifts

RETS’ exclusive choice in hook loaders? Ampliroll Hydraulic Hooklift Systems.

When fitted to a single- or dual-axle chassis-and-cab combination, Ampliroll users can roll-on and haul as many truck bodies or containers as needed to support their operation. Typically, these roll-off bodies include compactor receivers, dump bodies, open-top containers, recycling containers and other types.

When Ampliroll hook loaders are used to handle roll-off bodies and containers, fleet operators including recyclers, scrappers, waste management firms and municipalities gain multiple advantages over alternative, cable-hoist systems:

  • Speed: With an Ampliroll hooklift, drivers can forego the cumbersome task of connecting a cable and winching aboard a body or container. With a hook loader like Ampliroll, it typically takes just two or three minutes to lift or drop a container. In business, it’s said that time is money. And Ampliroll saves fleet operators time—enabling more loads per day.
  • Ease-of-operation: With Ampliroll Hydraulic Hooklift Systems, drivers don’t need to waste time in perfectly positioning their vehicles. An Ampliroll hook loader can engage a body or container up to 30 degrees off-center when loading. This is one more reason why roll-off body and container changeovers are faster with hydraulic hooklifts from Ampliroll.
  • Safety: With Ampliroll, a hook loader driver can complete a drop-off or pick-up safely from inside the cab of the truck. In contrast, the operator of a cable-loader vehicle must get out of the cab, latch the cable to the body or container, and operate the controls outside. Ampliroll hooklift drivers face far fewer risks from slippery work surfaces or moving machinery.
