“Due to the proximity of existing housing developments, a main focus of our procurement criteria was on minimising noise pollution and avoiding emissions,” said operations manager Heinz Gstrein.
“This is optimally achieved by the environmentally friendly electric motor. The machine work much more quiety and, the electric solution also reduced the operating costs by around 70%.”
Ideally, the operator and machine are a unit, and great emphasis was therefore placed on this when equipping the machine. With a 2.7 m (almost 9 ft) elevating Maxcab industrial cab, together with armoured glass panes and the inclined windshield, the operator has an optimum overview of the work area during sorting.
The machine itself has an 11 m (36 ft) long piece of equipment with a sorting grab and can be flexibly supplied with current via a trailing cable.
Thanks to the electric drive, the operating costs were considerably reduced in comparison to conventional diesel machines, while the service life and maintenance intervals of components were increased.
