One of these units has a detachable rave extension fitted to facilitate the emptying by the fleet of Rossi QUBE and R205 satellite units. These new ‘N’ Series units have been mounted onto MAN TGM 4×2 18 tonne two axle chassis with Euro 6 compliant engines. The chassis has been fitted with a MAN semi automatic twelve speed transmission. One of these units will collect waste from markets as well as from special areas where 360 and 1000 litre containers are deployed. A total of one hundred 360 and 1000 litre containers in combined sizes are used for this service. These units will work twenty four hours a day on a three shift cycle e.g. morning, afternoon and night. The ‘N’ Series has a high compaction ratio of 6:1 so these new units will yield high payloads when collecting market waste etc. and transferring waste from the smaller Rossi QUBE and R205 units. The ‘N’ Series units also have the SmartPack system fitted which helps to reduce fuel consumption by 15%.
