Variopress Rear Loader
The Variopress is a versatile blade type rear loader for Household and Commercial Waste and Recycling collection.
Tested over 40 years the design has evolved into a reliable and robust workhorse that is light in tare weight to maximise your efficiency. Some clever design points help it stand out from the crowd as a market leader.
FAUN‘s new Variopress is available in two different body designs: With smooth side walls or, as an option, with ribs. The smooth container wall offers an optimum advertising space, and the ribs are a tribute to the classic rugged design.
The optional DIN connection frame enables a really wide range of lifter systems to be combined with the body. This combination allows all large waste bins from 60 litres to 1.7 m³ to be emptied. If required, bulk containers of up to 4.4 m³ can also be emptied with using special lifters.
FAUN’s sister company Zoller provides a wide range of bin lifters to suit all your requirements. Zoller has been designing and building lifters for the past 60 years and are considered to be the leading bin lifter manufacturer in Europe.

- Zoller 301 High Lift lifter for kerb side collection with rapid lift and lower speeds to increase productivity.
- Options of 150mm auto raise to ensure bin is aligned and coupled to the lifter to the fully automatic lifter operation to lift, tip and lower the bins all aim to increase productivity whilst maximising operator safety.
