When the City of Kissimmee, Florida needed a chassis crucial to the success of their innovative underground waste technology, they turned to Autocar Trucks to custom-engineer a truck for their application.
Autocar and its customer, Athens Services, presented the first truck featuring Cummins Westports Near-Zero NOx engine at the 2017 ACT Expo. Now Athens is expanding their Autocar CNG-powered operations.
El Paso, Texas – The City of El Paso recognizes that driving a garbage truck all day is one of the toughest jobs in the business. That’s why it’s so important for their drivers to have the space they need to get the job done, safely and efficiently, no matter how long the route – and that’s why they chose Autocar trucks.
Why buy a refuse truck that's been chopped, changed and spliced when you can have a custom-engineered truck built for the job? We work directly with you to design and custom-build your refuse truck with the exact host of features engineered in to get your specific job done and boost your bottom line. That means custom-engineering for the body and the complexities of weight distribution to maximize your legal payload, and integrating the controls, fuel system and other components.
Ready to Work from Day One

We introduced a range of new options to improve our refuse truck value and performance. A stronger, lighter front-end was designed to optimize weight distribution and maximize payload for all refuse truck configurations.
The Autocar refuse truck is designed with uptime in mind.
We back every truck with factory warranties, supported by Cummins and Allison along with a host of other business partners.

Tough Refuse Trucks
Ride easy in your Autocar refuse truck knowing you're in one of the safest cabs on the market. Our fully welded, two-sided galvanealed steel structure provides unmatched protection, strength, and durability. Some competitors use fiberglass in their cabs and doors - but that's not our style.
What Blind Spot?
Our refuse truck cab offers minimal obstructions in the 360 degree view. A curved windshield reduces front obstruction while a one-piece rear window, curved corner windows, and lowered components minimize blind spots.
Best Turning Radius
The Autocar® ACX™ refuse truck has the best turning radius in the industry, allowing operators to maneuver in tight spaces, improving efficiency and productivity. Spending less time in reverse drives your business forward.
Severe Duty Refuse Trucks
Uptime is a big deal for us. That’s why we build our refuse trucks with stronger and lighter frame rails, and your truck will have the exact powertrain, axle and transmission options to do your job. You get a truck built for the most payload, best reliability, and easiest serviceability.
Your cab is your office. You spend your whole day in it, which is why we built each Autocar® ACX™ refuse truck with a high-efficiency HVAC system and cab that is tailored to the driver. There's a cab configuration for every application.
BIG JOB? BIG CAB.
We created a larger refuse truck cab environment to accommodate drivers of all sizes. You'll find multiple step height options, ergonomic control placement, and a tilt steering column to help you effortlessly get the job done.
What do you need from your onboard display – vehicle status updates, custom monitors, timers, real-time fault codes, and a diagnostic interface? Tell us the data you’re looking for and we’ll customize your OBD to give you the information you need to maintain and manage your vehicles.

Each refuse truck cab is constructed from corrosion-resistant steel followed by a Cathodic Electrocoat dip process before the top coat is applied. The result is a truck that we can confidently back with a 3-year perforation corrosion warranty and a 5-year structural warranty.
The Autocar® ACX™ refuse truck frame has a Resistance Bending Moment of 3.3 million to 4.2 million lb.in (without and with optional liner) just below the arm torque tube on a front loader or the automated arm mount on an automated side loader – providing industry leading strength where it’s needed most and leaving you with peace of mind that your truck can work in the toughest conditions.
We offer a full range of factory installed options including auxiliary axles, drop frames, natural gas fuel control systems, and transmission-mounted PTO. We simplify customization – order the options you need and we install them here, giving you the most reliable truck in the industry.
