    Abstract: A waste removal vehicle including a loader, an elevator having a chain-driven conveyor mounted on the loader, and a pair of moveable wing arms including a flexible lower portion for engaging the surface of the location floor and forwardly mounted rollers for engaging the curb of an alley or aisle that are positioned on either side of the elevator for directing animal excrement and associated waste from a concentrated feeding location, such as a barn or stable. One end of the elevator is positioned in front of the loader to float on rollers above the floor and accept waste materials, while the opposing end communicates with the upper portion of a tank mounted on the rear of the loader. As the vehicle is driven along, the wing arms collect and direct waste to the elevator, which transports the waste to a holding tank on the back of the vehicle.
