Thinking ahead.

Econic handles the transportation of garden and bulk waste with ease.

Wolfgang Stift puts others first. “It was important to us to make the work as easy as possible for our colleagues,” reports the representative from the market town of Wiener Neudorf. He is proud of the Econic in the small Austrian town near Vienna. As a part of the municipal fleet, the vehicle has been making work easier there since 2018. The Econic is primarily used for transporting bulk and garden waste – which is also a real service within the community.

 

An important step.

Daily processes in cities and communities need to be as convenient and efficient as possible. After all, it’s all about keeping the community going. And that is tough enough in itself. This made it even more important for Daimler Truck to design an easy entry and exit point for the Econic. After all, city staff working on disposal tasks have to get in and out of their trucks countless times every day – which can be really hard on the joints when working with a conventional truck. And this can develop into a major problem in the long term.

All-round safety.

A safe vehicle is also indispensable in urban traffic, an environment that can get hectic – both for staff as well as for other road users. In the Econic, the cab's glass door extends to the floor and provides a generous, all-round view along with the panoramic windscreen. Thanks to its low seat, the driver is at eye level with car drivers and pedestrians, and the direct view facilitates a faster response in hazardous situations. Camera systems on both the driver’s and co-driver’s side mean they can see blind spots, while other optional safety assistance systems round off the equipment. “A view you wouldn’t have with any other truck,” Wolfgang Stift says, summarising his assessment of the Econic with satisfaction.

Next step towards sustainability.

The all-electric Mercedes-Benz eEconic operates without generating emissions in the local waste management industry.
