Volvo Trucks is displaying its Euro-VI compliant FE Dual Control waste truck at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, as part of Waste Expo Australia.

“We are extremely proud to display what we feel is the ultimate residential waste truck at the 2017 Waste Expo Australia,“ said Volvo Trucks Australia Vice President, Mitch Peden.

“The combination of Volvo's proven global platform, dedicated local engineers and close collaboration with major waste management customers has enabled us to produce a superior residential waste truck for the Australian market.

“We treat our customers as business partners, and through this close collaboration we knew they wanted a safer, greener, ergonomically superior truck that would drive value in their business; and that's exactly what our engineers have delivered,“ he said.

According to Volvo Trucks, the FE Dual Control has a wider windshield, extra side mirrors and windows. Safety features for the standard 6x4 models include collision warning, emergency braking and Electronic Stability Program (ESP).

“Driver comfort and providing a quiet, ergonomic working environment is becoming increasingly important for Australia's residential waste operators, which is exactly why our engineers made full scale models of the dual-control dash to ensure every button and switch was in exactly the right position,“ said Peden.
