Star among the special vehicles sporting the “star” is the New Actros, which will be introduced at an international trade show for the first time. The “Truck of The Year 2012” with Palfinger and Meiller special-purpose bodies demonstrates how environmental awareness paired with comfort and dynamism can add value to a municipal vehicle fleet.
The smaller but exceptionally versatile Fuso Canter TF with a new front, optimised functions, ecologically relevant and ergonomically sophisticated technology can be seen among other things with a Variopress special-purpose body from Faun.
The sustainability of the alternative drive system that uses liquefied natural gas is substantiated by the eco-friendly Econic LNG with further expanded operating range for even better cost-effectiveness, while the Sprinter – this time as a Doka version with equipment from Schmidt Winterdienst – provides convincing arguments first and foremost with its flexibility in day-to-day municipal operations.
Five Unimogs on exhibit
The Unimog is represented at the Ifat Entsorga with a total of five “all-rounders” that once more offer compelling evidence of their versatility as powerful, economical, user- and eco-friendly carrier vehicles equipped with street-sweeper equipment, road-marking machine, mowing implement, snowplough or tunnel washing machine.
The Axor and Zetros also offer specific solutions for municipal road maintenance operations.
All vehicles reflect commitment to cost effectiveness and sustainability but also to driver comfort and safety.
Last but not least, an Atego race truck adds further to the appeal of the trade show exhibit.
New record for in-door exhibition space
After the successful premiere of the merged trade shows Ifat and Entsorga in 2010 – some 110,000 visitors from 185 countries and 2730 international exhibitors – the world’s leading trade show for environmental technology 2012 will most likely set new records. For the first time the show will occupy 215,000 square metres of exhibition space, 180,000 square metres thereof in fully booked halls.
Once again the latest innovations and services in the water resources, sewage, waste and raw materials management will be presented. The focus is among other things on waste collection and transport with suitable vehicles and special-purpose bodies as well as on street cleaning and maintenance with summer- and winter-specific equipment. A practice-oriented surrounding programme with discussion forums and live presentations aims at providing the expert audience with in-depth knowledge and new experiences for day-to-day municipal operations.
The doors of this year’s Ifat Entsorga at the “Neue Messe München” will be open 7 to 11 May.
