King Highway Products unveils rigid recycling truck

Traiload, the specialist trailer and traffic management division of Market Harborough based King Highway Products, reinforced its move into the waste collection market by exhibiting an innovative, compact, 7.5 tonnes rigid recycling truck at this year's RWM Show at the NEC.

Although only recently introduced to the waste collection sector, this versatile, easy to operate vehicle, which features an Isuzu NQR 70 4×2 chassis cab, generated a great deal of visitor interest, the company reports. Traiload says it is already proving to be a highly popular, cost effective choice for a number of local authorities throughout the UK who are successfully using it to support and implement their own specific kerbside waste collection activities.

Providing a maximum payload of 3,500kg, the recycling truck’s lightweight, robust, mini-body features a 6,400mm x 2,490mm steel constructed main deck with aluminium flooring. Seven low height, GRP waste collection stillages incorporating forklift pockets and load-securing nets enable operators to quickly and easily sort all types of the household waste from the kerbside, avoiding the need to climb on the vehicle..

The truck also includes side marker lamps, reversing alarm and distance sensor with audible/visual cab indication and two xenon beacons fitted to the rear of the vehicle for safe operation.

Duncan Moss, General Manager at Traiload, comments: “The new rigid vehicle ideally complements our highly successful 6,200kg mini-artic Strailer .” The company says that both vehicles provide exceptional access in very restricted areas such as narrow roads and cul-de-sacs and are a cost effective alternative to more expensive waste collection vehicles.

Traiload can arrange demonstrations to potential customers.
