The curtains will come off the new Elite 6 Dennis Eagle chassis at next week’s Waste 2022 Conference in Coffs Harbour.
Available in both right-hand steer and dual control variants, the Elite 6 is specifically designed for the refuse industry. Penske says the truck’s low-entry cab combined with a superior window and mirror visibility package yields an unmatched overall solution.
“Dennis Eagle has an exceptional offering that every refuse collection operator should consider,” said Shannon Mair, head of fleet at Penske Australia.
“As recognised by Transport for London, Dennis Eagle is the only truck manufacturer to be awarded a five-star direct vision standard rating.
“By virtue of design, the low-entry cab allows drivers to enter and exit the vehicle with a single step from the kerb, easily transition inside the cabin while standing up, and change from a right-hand to left-hand driving position without exiting, where dual controls are available.
“Furthermore, the added ease of getting in and out of the Dennis Eagle means waste collection can be completed more efficiently without running up the overtime bill.
“Dennis Eagle is very committed to reducing harmful emissions by shifting to low- or zero-carbon emissions and alternative energy sources.
“Dennis Eagle was also an early adopter of Euro 6 emission engines and also offers a technologically-agnostic glider platform that can be used with carbon-reducing technology such as natural gas, battery-electric, or hydrogen power.”
Easily distinguished by its new look, Dennis Eagle’s Elite 6 vehicle also has upgraded headlights, emergency braking, and electronic stability control as standard.
“When you add these advanced driver assistance systems to what is fundamentally a very safe truck with best-in-class visibility, easy ingress and egress, efficiency, and a pre-legislated Euro 6 engine, this results in a truck that is clearly heads and shoulders above the rest,” added Mair.
“This great new product is backed by outstanding support from our Penske-owned and independent dealer network.”
Visitors to Waste 2022 will be able to view the Dennis Eagle line-up in stall 43 (indoors) and displays 23, 24, and 25 (outdoors).
