Want to know how to gain a competitive advantage with your refuse collection equipment? Join Phil Dybing and Scott Kanne to explore how to drastically reduce your fleet’s fuel consumption and related CO2 emissions, run quieter, increase productivity, and improve truck up-time.
In this webinar from MSW Management’s stable mate, Forester University, Dybing and Kanne will discuss the challenges in refuse collection equipment, the opportunities available with smart hydraulic solutions, and how to implement these solutions in your fleet. This session will also include a real-world case study of the country’s fastest growing refuse body OEM, illustrating the positive impact these solutions can have in today’s competitive environment.
Today’s refuse collection trucks are being asked to do more than ever; from automated side loaders that pick up 1,200 bins per day, to dual-purpose refuse/recyclable units, to the growing utilization of alternative fuels. At the same time you are facing tougher competition, and customers and municipalities are demanding “green” fleets that produce less noise and fewer emissions.
Even as the industry advances, most hydraulic systems on most refuse trucks remain quite primitive and, frankly, highly inefficient at best. The good news is, in this session you’ll learn how smart fleet operators and haulers can improve their operations by learning about and adopting readily available smart hydraulic solutions to help their trucks
* run cleaner,
* burn less fuel,
* run quieter, and
* improve productivity and driver ease of use.
Please join us for this informative discussion that will highlight and quantify these solutions and the impact they can have on your operations. You will hear firsthand how these solutions have made a real and sizable impact by examining a case study with one of the country’s fastest growing refuse body OEMs.
Webinar attendees can expect discussion and education on the following learning objectives:
1. Discover specific hydraulic solutions to improve the efficiency and productivity of your refuse collection fleet.
2. Explore how smart hydraulic systems can dramatically improve driver safety, comfort, and ease of use without adding risk or complexity.
3. Learn how today’s hydraulic systems can improve the overall truck performance as you deploy today’s advanced CNG-powered engines.
4. Tap into new and innovative solutions to significantly reduce the cost of hydraulic oil spills, and, in some cases, prevent them all together.
