== Description ==
 
[[File:Trashmaster_liv.png|thumb|184px]]
 
As with most other utility/industrial vehicles in the [[Grand Theft Auto]] series, the Trashmaster has no functional purpose, with the exception of GTA Liberty City Stories; it has a side mission entitled [[Trash Dash]], where the player must drive a Trashmaster around the city, picking up garbage in a [[Taxi|Taxi mission]] style way. It is one of the slowest and least maneuverable vehicles in the series, and in GTA III, it has the lowest point value when destroyed, 10. Despite its shortfalls, the Trashmaster tends to be one of the heaviest and hardest trucks available in the game. The Trashmaster in GTA San Andreas is notably faster and features a different Engine compared to the other GTA III era games.
 
   
The Trashmaster is commonly found driving in the industrial sections of each city. The Trashmaster in GTA IV only spawns in the early hours of the morning; it also has a functioning back door, although it can only be operated during the mission [[Taking in the Trash]], where [[Niko Bellic]] must drive to waypoints, picking up diamond-filled trash bags along the way. As the vehicle is quite large, it's top speed is only 99 mph.

Returning in the HD Universe, the Trashmaster comes much slower and harder to handle. The truck is powered by what seems to be a large V8, with a RWD layout, and a manual 5 speed gearbox. The trucks is very slow at accelerating, due to the large and heavy rear, and the unequal weight distribution. The Trashmaster is also hard to turn quickly, due to the very differently sized rear back, which can cause mistakes when reversing down allies and attempting to turn around.

The Trashmaster is a recurring garbage truck. It succeeds the Garbage Truck from Grand Theft Auto 2, and reoccurs throughout the series, excluding GTA Chinatown Wars. It is manufactured by Jobuilt in the HD Universe.

Design Edit

Overview Edit

Trashmaster liv

Livery found on the Trashmaster in GTA IV.

Throughout the games, its appearance has remained mostly the same, with the exception of the front cab, which switches around from flat cab-over design to a conventional cab in-between the games.

3D UniverseEdit

In GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, the Trashmaster resembles a Mack MR. In GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, and GTA Vice City Stories it has a cab similar to the Yankee, but the grille is slightly altered, GTA San Andreas's version also has different headlights, added turning signals, bears Sanitary Andreas logos.

HD UniverseEdit

The GTA IV rendition is the most realistic yet, with LSD workers hanging on the back, as well as various other details. It closely resembles a DSNY (Department of Sanitation New York) Mack LE Refuse Collection Truck but the front is slightly altered.

In GTA V the Trashmaster is slightly changed in the headlights and generally in the front fascia and also in the colours: the truck, in fact, has a new completely gray paintjob and has adverts on both sides. This time loses the mounted front defense.

An alternate version of the Trashmaster appears in the Heists Update in GTA Online, which features a very rusty rear, notably at the bottom.

3D Universe Edit

The Trashmaster has a slow but powerful engine, and when at its top speed, is a threat to other motorists on the road. However, durability is slightly worse than expected for a truck of its size, but deformation/body damage is mostly unnoticeable. The truck has a high chance of rolling over when cornering at high speed.

HD UniverseEdit

Returning in the HD Universe, the Trashmaster comes much slower and harder to handle. The truck is powered by what seems to be a large V8, with a RWD layout, and a manual 5 speed gearbox. The trucks is very slow at accelerating, due to the large and heavy rear, and the unequal weight distribution. The Trashmaster is also hard to turn quickly, due to the very differently sized rear back, which can cause mistakes when reversing down allies and attempting to turn around.

GTA Liberty City StoriesEdit

  • The GTA Liberty City Stories rendition of the truck is unusual in that its door will not be closed when the player exits the truck on a flat surface; the player must disembark onto a surface more elevated than that where the truck is in order to close the door. This peculiarity is also seen on other vehicles with high driver compartments, such as the Dumper in GTA San Andreas.

GTA IVEdit

  • In GTA IV, the Trashmaster's compacter can be operated by pressing the sprint button. This comes into play during the mission Taking in the Trash; the men Niko is working with will only throw the bags into the truck when the rear lid is open. However, it can not be opened after or before the mission and will only stop the truck.
  • The Trashmaster is usually scheduled to roam Liberty City picking up trash on Tuesdays & Fridays.
  • The Trashmaster's front turning lights will not light up. However, only the light reflection on the ground is visible. This is most likely a minor cosmetic glitch.
  • It is not possible to carry four people using the Trashmaster, even though it can be seen with two LSD workers on the back.

GTA V and GTA OnlineEdit

  • Despite the fact that the vehicle has no badging, police radio chatter in GTA V reveals that the manufacturer is Jobuilt.
  • The vehicle features the City of Los Santos logo on the front doors.
  • It is rarely seen driving in Los Santos, and very rarely seen in GTA Online, but still does spawn.
  • The second variant, along with the Lost Slamvan and the second variant of the Barracks are the only DLC vehicles that are not available for purchase.
  • The second variant oddly omits the indicator lights at the right side.
  • The second variant cannot be obtained in normal gameplay, however, it can be used by setting the team respawn vehicle to the second Trashmaster on the list in a GTA Capture, in the Creator.
