Proven in everyday use: the Quantron QHB
The environmentally friendly and low-noise QHB waste disposal vehicle has already been proving its worth for many months. The QHB has been in use at leading German waste management companies since May 2020 and has proven its suitability for everyday use in cities such as Frankfurt, Leipzig, Düsseldorf, Nuremberg, Bremen, Ulm, Darmstadt, Constance, Kassel, Halle and Essen. The easy handling for drivers and loaders was rated particularly positively. For example, the operation of the electric QHB differs only minimally from that of a conventional vehicle, and no special handling is required in the fleet. The vehicle could be dispatched and used in all applications, with very few exceptions, in the same way as previous internal combustion vehicles. Up to 1000 refuse containers and two refuse tours in a 9-hour shift were part of the compulsory discipline during the operations of the Quantron QHB 27-280. A good starting ability, the high payload and the extremely good efficiency of the drive were noted.
