A trio of Dennis Eagle Elite 6 chassis will be exhibited at the Waste 2023 Conference in Coffs Harbour next week.
Penske Australia’s stand will include a dual-control side loader and two right-hand-steer rear loaders with Bucher Municipal and Superior Pak bodies.
Available in a 6x4 wheel configuration, the Elite 6 chassis is specifically designed for the refuse industry and boasts a low-entry cab with a full unencumbered panoramic view.
“As recognised by Transport for London, Dennis Eagle is the only truck manufacturer to have its complete model range awarded a five-star direct vision standard rating,” said Shannon Mair, head of fleet at Penske Australia.
“With a suite of safety features including a single step entry, walk-through flat floor, tall and wide door openings, well-positioned grab handles, and all-wheel disc brakes, Dennis Eagle ensures vehicle operators and the public are in the safest hands.
“Additionally, the Elite 6 includes advanced driver-assist systems (ADAS) such as electronic stability control, lane departure warning, and advanced emergency braking system, ensuring we provide one of the safest refuse collection vehicles in the industry.
“Powered by the ever-reliable Cummins B6.7 Euro 6 engine rated at 290 hp (217 kW), the Elite 6 is the most fuel-efficient yet.
“At this year’s Waste, we have Richard Taylor, sales and marketing director, and Andrew Christie, export development manager, of Dennis Eagle in the UK, joining us to meet with customers and visitors who are keen to hear more on Dennis Eagle’s vision and plans for the future.”
Visitors to Waste 2023 will be able to view the Dennis Eagle exhibition at stall 43 (indoors) and displays 23, 24, and 25 (outdoors).
