Geesinknorba presented its GPMIV rearloader and LI-ON Power hybrid refuse vehicle.
The GPMIV features greater packing capability and a host of high-tech features designed to increase productivity for refuse haulers on a variety of routes.
The rearloader is manufactured from a lightweight, single-sheet body which provides added strength and durability. It also features Geesink’s unique pressing mechanism and a system which provides a full diagnosis of the operating status of the vehicle, helping operators to solve malfunctions, either from the cab or from a remote location.
The control system can be optimised for collecting waste fractions, from wet waste to recycling materials.
Ease of maintenance has also been built into the vehicle, with easy to access components and wear-sensitive parts.
The LI-ON Power hybrid refuse vehicle’s loading and compaction runs on electricity and due to the lightweight lithium-ion battery, up to 10 tonnes of refuse can be collected.
The truck produces considerably fewer CO2 emissions and less noise, with analysis showing that three LI-ON Power rearloaders on biogas chassis produce the same level of CO2 emissions as one conventional diesel refuse truck.
The vehicle also generates electricity itself, with the battery charged as the vehicle drives along.
