Mercedes Benz Econic refuse vehicles do well
Mercedes-Benz Trucks has completed delivery of 16 Econic 2630 refuse vehicles to the London Borough of Redbridge. The vehicles are rear-steer models with dual-compartment Heil-Farid compactor bodies, meaning they can be used to collect recyclable waste. They are powered by 7.7-litre Euro-VI engines driving through six-speed Allison automatic gearboxes, ride on full air suspension and are equipped with axle weight measuring systems. Mercedes-Benz Trucks has also supplied five new Actros 2548 tractor units to Warisa Distribution in Wigan. The vehicles have flat-floored GigaSpace cabs, and have been accessorised by Warisa with chrome Kelsa lightbars, wheel trims, side skirts and air horns.
