Leveraging Daimler’s global engineering prowess and generations of hands-on experience, the Freightliner EconicSD™ delivers an accessible, low-entry, safe and adaptive cabover-engine, or COE, vehicle to the North American market. Combining versatility, ergonomics and convenience, this garbage truck provides an innovative solution for the North American waste collection industry, packed with practical features to help you get the job done, day in and day out. Engineering this truck for the rigors of North American waste collection, Freightliner worked closely with leading refuse equipment manufacturers to bring it to market with new, fully integrated waste-collection solutions. Two configurations outfit rear-load and side-load garbage truck bodies or front loader garbage trucks.
Ergonomics was an important consideration in this garbage truck’s development, with thoughtful design promoting productivity. The cab is spacious and comfortable, including an air-suspended driver’s seat with multi-axis adjustment. Switches and controls are designed for intuitive operation and located within easy reach of the driver. This cabover waste collection truck features a 350 HP DD8™ engine with 1050 lb-ft of torque, variable cam phasing technology for efficient aftertreatment performance and the longest maintenance intervals in its class. It also features a high-performance engine brake and Detroit Connect Virtual Technician.
