Pioneer Rack ‘n Pinion Strong Arm Tarping Systems Feature Innovative, Patented Design that’s the Cho

Published on 01/04/11

Pioneer, Wastequip’s leading brand of automated tarping systems for the waste industry, offers innovative Rack ‘n Pinion tarping systems designed to accommodate containers of various sizes.

These fully hydraulic systems use patented rack and pinion technology for controlled side arm movement, providing adjustable length telescoping arms. A hydraulic cylinder moves a rack gear forward and backwards in combination with a pinion gear to rotate the pivot arms. The arms extend and retract through dual acting hydraulic cylinders to accommodate containers of various heights. This design provides constant control over speed and precise synchronization of the pivot arms as they cover and uncover the container, preventing dangerous tarp arm freefall that can occur with other systems. 

Pioneer’s Rack ‘n Pinion systems are designed to accommodate 20, 30, 40 and 50 yard containers and come standard with a 114-inch wide heavy duty mesh tarp that is reinforced at the front and rear with urethane coated nylon for wear resistance. Rack ‘n Pinion systems are available in adjustable and fixed gantry models. 

One of the easiest systems tarping systems to install, Rack ‘n Pinion systems feature a quick tarp attachment that requires no drilling to install. Simply insert the tube and secure it with bolts. Additional features include nitrided cylinders for longer life and 3 x 2 x 3/16 wall A500B steel tube arms, the strongest in the industry. 

“Waste haulers insist on the Pioneer Rack ‘n Pinion system because of its proven track record of reliability, low maintenance and minimal downtime,” said Bernie May, sales manager for Pioneer and Mountain Tarp. 

Pioneer Rack ‘n Pinion systems are backed by an industry-leading three year warranty.
