Refuse trucks with Allison automatic transmissions debut in Bauru
Constant problems with truck maintenance and downtime, led the City of Bauru, through Emdurb (Municipal Company of Urban and Rural Development of Bauru), to propose a tender for the purchase of ten new trucks with Allison fully automatic transmissions for the exhausting work of refuse collection in Bauru, São Paulo.
Aoki, the Mercedes-Benz dealership in the city, won the bid and delivered the trucks in record time. Despite the difficult times experienced globally, the trucks arrived approximately 70 days before the deadline set by the contract signed with Emdurb. In addition to this, it is quite significant to realize that the preference for vehicles equipped with Allison transmissions is extending beyond large capital cities to reach the interior of the states.
“The city of Bauru has an extremely rough topography with very steep slopes, constantly causing problems for refuse trucks equipped with manual transmissions," said Daniel Tiburcio, Sales Manager at Aoki Bauru. “Given this reality, we were able to prove to the related authorities that only a vehicle with a fully automatic Allison transmission would solve the refuse trucks’ issues of durability, maintenance and downtime.”
The ten new refuse compactors are Mercedes-Benz 1729 model, with a capacity of 15 m3 of debris, and received the Allison 3000™ Series fully automatic transmissions. Through its electronic commands, detection of any operational inaccuracies are displayed by a fault code on the digital display on the gear selector. Also through this display, it is possible to read the transmission oil level and know the most suitable time for its replacement.
“Differently from other locations, refuse disposal for the city of Bauru is far away. After the refuse collection, coping with exhaustive stop-and-go and many steer grades to overcome, the truck has to travel 50 kilometers of road to unload. That is two profoundly different traffic conditions to which the transmission is submitted,” said Tiburcio.
The company also trained 22 drivers - two working shifts with ten drivers and other two substitute drivers - to enable the technical delivery of the vehicles. By the second half of April, the ten new vehicles were already in operation.
“The sale of these new trucks to the city of Bauru shows us that the robustness and quality of our transmissions are also attracting smaller fleet operators in the interior cities of Brazil. The first step, with the acceptance of the large fleet owners in the main Brazilian capitals, has already been taken. Now, we are beginning to see a great interest in regions with lower demographic density,” said Evaldo de Oliveira, Allison Transmission’s Director of Operations for South America. “The natural expansion of this receptivity is certainly based on satisfaction and good results obtained by some of the main refuse collection companies in the country.”
