QUANTRON electric waste disposal vehicles impress under test

Quantron AG electrifies commercial vehicles from 3.49 to 44 tons gross combination weight, including waste disposal vehicles such as the Mercedes-Benz Econic. The company’s environmentally friendly solution, called Quantron QHB, has numerous advantages and also impresses in practical tests.

With immediate effect, the company is also offering a five-year full warranty on selected models of its Mercedes-Benz Econic, MAN TGS and DAF CF electric waste disposal vehicles, as well as on selected rear-loader bodies.

The QHB scores with its power of up to 350kW and a maximum torque of 3500 Nm. The battery of the QUANTRON vehicle also impresses with up to 280 kW storage capacity. This enables the vehicle to either cover a range of up to 240 km (without body activity) or to empty up to 1,000 refuse containers in a 9-hour shift in two refuse tours, without intermediate charging.

Further advantages of the QHB are that the e-drive technology and electrification can also be retrofitted to existing vehicles and is also suitable for various attachments and superstructures.

The batteries installed are cobalt-free and equipped with extremely flame-retardant lithium iron phosphate (LFP) technology.

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.
