I worked in landfills in New Jersey an Pennsylvania but never saw a separate engine for a packer . Rubbishman could you post a picture I would like to see one. Why not just use engine from truck?

HS-------Hydraulics on packers have come a long way in 30 years, so you wouldn't have to rev 'em up as much, with a bigger pump .

Hamish, I saw literature peddling them to the States, but I never heard of anyone in rubbish using them. But the Perkins 4pot Marine/Industrial got use as pony engines on rear loader bodies. Big improvement over the Wisconsin 4-61 air cooled previously used.
I knew of a few rubbish with the 6V DD boy did those scream when you ran the packer!

I didn't hate the orginal Compact, it was the RX that I didn't like, the one in the brochure. It was an improved Compact cab as far as comforts, finish, etc. and bigger. The problem was the cab was too high and the forks on the front loader could not be seen unless you sat way up and forward in the seat, and I am(was) 6 feet. When you have to stab 100 or more cans per route it was a hassle. Plus the 1160 kitty was a throw away engine. I can off a DV550 that smoked like a frieghtrain, so the Cat was a step up when new, but just didn't hold up, as I always say, if a engine/truck survives heavy rubbish duty it must be halfway OK>

Thanks for your answer. I guess there weren't that many of those small V8 diesels were that great an engine-IH DV462DV550, Cat 1100 series/3208, Cummins V8185/V504/V555, Detroit 8.2 Litre Fuel Pincher, GMC Toro-Flow V6s-none of these seemed to be remembered with much fondness. I guess the 6V53 was about the best of the lot of them. Did you have Perkins V8s-V8.510 and V8.540 in trucks over there?

Someone at Bradley Ave. landfill nearby used to say dump the truck and drive the load out, or something like that.

I worked for the garbage co here in the 70's at the dump running dozer and cat and can, man the boss's hated it when I got on the radio and called for the mechanic, his call number was 50, being the guy I am I'd get on the horn, dump to  five O, the return call would be thats not the dump Bento, thats the land fill, Ha anything for a cheap thrill.
 Anyway they had some of those older White compacts with 6V 53's, poor old worn out things, when they came up the hill and turned in the cabs looked to be shaking so far I thought they would hit the forks, just smoken and choken, they finally junked those out and started to get the baby Peterbilts.

This was out around the same time as the RB. Just an upgraded Compact, I had one with a front loader and 1160. Hated it! Then only a couple years later the brought the WX cab that lasted until recently under the "Autocar" branding. Cant get pictures right on here using phone camera today.

Why did you hate the White Compact, Rubbishman?

Although the seller hasn’t given a firm number, from our conversation the price sounds to be around $5k.
