The Galbreath Loaded Container Handler (LCH) was designed as a safer way to transport front and rear load containers. Containers are designed to sit level during transport to minimize trash spillage. The container and the center of gravity sit in front of the rear axle to maximize weight distribution, allowing safe loaded container transport at highway speeds. The Galbreath LCH can accommodate up to 8,000 lbs. and front load containers up to 10 yards or rear load containers up to 6 yards in size.  Legal overhang at the rear of the vehicle when hauling loaded containers prevents the need for an ICC bumper.
