Econic vacuum cleaning trucks ensure safer roads.
Day after day, the municipal drainage crew works tirelessly for the public. Their mission: safe roads. Their vehicle: a new Econic 2535 with a modern vacuum body built by Assmann. With its help the two crew members make sure that the drains are empty and clean every workday so that rain water can drain safely from the roads.
Work safety is top priority.
The team's working day begins at 6.00 a.m. at the vehicle depot. First they go through the "white area" where they store their everyday clothing and then into the strictly restricted "black area" where the orange work clothing is kept. This safeguards hygiene and in turn the health of the some 25 staff members at the site.
The reflective work clothing serves to make the teams more visible when they are out working. Work must often be carried out directly on the road or next to it. This is not without its dangers, which is why the safety of the crew is always top priority. And how can the new Econic help here? Thanks to the low construction of the cab, the vacuum system can be swung around to the front using remote control. As a result the operator who works directly next to the hose is shielded from the traffic by the vehicle – and thus better protected from accidents.
