Olympus Refuse Body
Building on the success of the Phoenix 2 body, the Olympus includes a number of new and enhanced features which comply with legislation changes to the Machinery Regulations Directive (2006/42/EC) effective from December 2009 and for EMC (Electro Magnetic Conductivity) compliance, whilst also meeting the proposed changes to the safety norms prEN 1501-1:2009 and prEN 1501-5:2009.
At first glance it is hard to distinguish between the Olympus and Phoenix 2 products, with visible differences only apparent with the new larger electrical control box at the nearside front of the body and a higher IP rating (IP69) to the electrical control buttons to improve waterproofing.
Body and Tailgate structures continue to use high yield alloy steels for strength and wear resistance, setting the standard within the waste industry by using an 8mm tailgate floor plate and 7mm tailgate side plates in Hardox 400 as standard.
Hydraulics have been updated by employing proportional controls for reduced noise and operating temperature, whilst enhancing the packing system logic for more efficient waste density control, direct from the incab CANBus display.
