On 23 April Brantner presented a new generation of a press-type waste collection vehicle to invited guests including representatives of the regional local authority associations.
Unlike the conventional press-type bin lorry which still features a hydraulic tipping mechanism, the pressing unit on this new development is powered by an electric battery. The engine of the lorry can be switched off while the press is in use which not only saves diesel but also reduces CO2 emissions and noise.
There are many benefits for use in urban traffic where increasing importance is being attached to the reduction of noise and exhaust emissions.
