Terberg launch electric binlift

An electric binlift that could save an estimated 19,000 litres of fuel a year has been launched by environmental equipment manufacturer Terberg Matec.

Unveiled at the Pollutec 2010 show, Terberg’s OmniDELe is described as a “bolt on, plug in, play on” machine, because it requires no hydraulic body preparation or second pump on the vehicle chassis thanks to its electronic power source.

Powered by a 24v DC source, which removes the risks associated with high voltage powered bin lifts, Terberg claims the OmniDELe will also “significantly reduce fitting times, eliminate the chance of oil contamination from the bin lift and reduce body preparation costs”.

The company also believes that, relative to traditional bin lifts, the OmniDELe could save waste companies 19,000 litres of fuel per vehicle per annum and can automatically detect and switch between trade and household bin collection positions.

Director for Terberg Matec France Bert-Jan Haverkamp said: “Pollutec 2010 was an excellent opportunity for us to present the best of innovation and ingenuity that Terberg Matec have to offer.”
