Olympus Gets An Upgrade
Dennis Eagle's market leading Olympus refuse collection body has received an upgrade - designed to improve operational performance.
First launched in 2010, it has become a firm favourite with both public and private sector customers, with the latest enhancements focussing primarily on hydraulic efficiency.
A new hydraulic tank will be fitted offering greater quality and reliability. Hydraulic efficiency is also improved by utilising redesigned cylinders, while fully maintaining cycle times and packing forces.
New control valves have been designed to recirculate existing oil in the system, preventing it travelling to and from the tank and creating improved efficiencies.
A higher front of body plate now comes as standard. This helps to reduce the chance of waste build-up spilling over to the engine bay, while full height front body netting prevents the risk of foreign objects exiting the body.
The upgraded Olympus also features a hinged electrical junction box door, along with a seal fitted to the body access door to prevent potential leakage. A front of body harness guard deflects obstructions – such as tree branches – from electrical equipment on the roof, and an underbody plate to stop rodents is now fitted as standard to protect the electrical harness from damage.
Roger Lane, Body Technical Manager at Dennis Eagle, comments: “The changes to the Olympus are designed to bring further enhancements to this popular product, enabling us to offer customers greater performance and efficiency as standard.”
