Rushcliffe Borough Council, part of the Nottinghamshire Vehicle Procurement Consortium, has taken delivery of the first OmniDEKA electric bin hoist from Terberg Matec UK. It is an automatic, low-voltage, high-level hoist combining a robust build with safe operation and efficiency.
Requiring only a 24V power supply, the OmniDEKA delivers savings in fuel and CO2 emissions, and contributes to noise reduction with operational levels below 57dB(A) – around the same volume as a normal conversation.
Mick Morley, the council’s recycling2go team leader, said: “Our operators like the OmniDEKA Electric and have noticed faster cycle times than standard high-level bin hoists.”
The OmniDEKA has a steep 46˚ tipping angle to reduce the risk of non-discharge. Suitable for a variety of applications, flexibility in mounting heights ranges from 1,150-1,675mm. It has a generous ground clearance of 450mm, and boasts high lifting capacity and fast lifting/discharge cycle times.
