DAF transport solutions for refuse collection



Refuse collection


Refuse collectors often operate in crowded areas, such as narrow streets in cities and villages. Good manoeuvrability and excellent visibility are essential in this line of business. Therefore the larger part of this market is taken by 4x2 and 6x2 compactors. All vehicles are fitted with a PTO and in most cases a vertical exhaust pipe. Most refuse collection vehicles are equipped with fully automatic or automated gearboxes. In order to better cope with the frequent stops and short distances that refuse collection vehicles make DAF has developed the specially designed Stop & Go software. This software is available for both fully automatic and automated gearboxes. 

The most complex part of the body is the loading part, a hydraulically operated device with extensive safety devices, suitable for emptying almost every type of waste container.
