Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd launched a brand new electric refuse vehicle this month and Totalkare was on hand to support.
The invite-only event, held across two days at Refuse Vehicle Solutions’ Dursley premises in Gloucestershire, introduced key individuals from the waste and recycling industry and local authorities to the e-One – a 26,000kg Dennis Eagle Olympus on a Dennis Eagle chassis has been repowered with an electric powertrain from Dutch developers EMOSS.
As a long term supplier to Refuse Vehicle Solutions, Totalkare was invited to support the event and showcase some of its own lifting and testing equipment, with Sales & Marketing Director James Radford and National Accounts Manager Brian Young in attendance.
Configurable in sets of four, six or eight, the T8DC mobile column lift can lift up to 7,500kg per column and has adjustable forks to accommodate a range of wheel diameters. It’s suitable for lifting all kinds of heavy duty vehicles from buses and coaches to vans, trucks, transporters and waste & recycling vehicles.
Totalkare’s DVSA-approved mobile brake tester is strong, durable and suitable for testing all vehicles up to a maximum axle load of 16,000kg. It comes supplied with its own cabinet, computer, printer and touchscreen tablet that communicates wireless with the brake tester. It can be upgraded with a variety of additional features including bi-directional rollers, tachograph calibration, axle load simulation and play detection.
“This year has been frustrating for us all with COVID-19 causing the cancellation or postponement of industry events Totalkare enjoys attending,” said James Radford, “So it was a pleasure to support Refuse Vehicle Solutions’ electric vehicle launch and engage with influential figures interested in our column lifts and brake testers – all while maintaining the correct social distancing protocols.”
