Are there any standard window height and mirror projection for garbage trucks. I am evaluating the feasibilty of a driver reaching a pneumatic tube conveyor carrier (similar to a bank teller operation)for paperwork and potential funds transfer. The location is planned with high and low carrier tube stations for cars/pickups and larger vehicles; however, I am still not convinced the drivers of the 'high' vehicles won't be swinging like primates on the mirror supports trying to reach these things. I have an assistant at the old facility today measuring a sampling of vehicles; has anyone seen reference material that might offer a range of dimensions? Semi-cabs are also used to haul refuse in tractor-trailier style rigs for long haul from transfer stations.
