For the waste management sector vehicles ranging from the “traditional” RCV through to hook loaders, materials handlers and wheeled loaders all have an essential part to play.
Innovation in design is a byword now for the products on offer from a range of manufacturers. Some now have four-wheel drive to cope with difficult surfaces and gradients while others are now featuring in cab messages about services, faults and maintenance requirements.
Developments in RCVs include the provision of low entry cabs with increased window areas to boost visibility, better quality seating and handrails as well as other features such as handwash basins.
Technology is also being used in terms of navigation and property visit record-keeping to maximise efficient use of the RCV.
