NSW council shows off new Dennis Eagle waste fleet

Blacktown City Council has paraded its six new special edition Dennis Eagle Elite 2 waste collection trucks at the Blacktown Festival in Sydney over the weekend.

Each vehicle was outfitted with a unique charity‐aligned design to raise awareness for the Amy Gillett Foundation, the Black Dog Institute, Keep NSW Beautiful, Cancer Council NSW, Diabetes NSW & ACT and Redkite.

Penske Commercial Vehicles partnered with its local dealer in Sydney to deliver the six trucks to the council.

The Dennis Eagle ‘Elite 2’ trucks include safety and driver comfort features such as single low‐step entry, compact wheel base, stand‐up walk‐through cab, disc brakes and strong visibility.

The fleet features modern ergonomic interiors with a number of comfort attributes to keep operators performing in the demanding refuse collection application and has been customised for the council’s requirements.

Penske Commercial Vehicles’ General Manager – Sales, Mark Mello, said the success of the initial truck supplied to the council laid the foundation for the subsequent delivery.

“The feedback we received about the first truck delivered to the Blacktown City Council was very positive, and that gave us an opportunity to work with our Sydney dealer on the supply of these six units,” Mello said.

“The council serves a huge resident base making truck attributes such as fuel efficiency, driver comfort and driver safety paramount.

“The Elite 2 range has led the way in the waste collection market with state‐of‐the‐art features, an ongoing improvement process and partnerships with body suppliers that have all resulted in a fantastic overall package that delivers outstanding performance in the urban environment.

“Both Penske Commercial Vehicles and our Sydney dealer have worked with the council over a few years now to provide the best value for money and low whole‐of‐life costs to the people of Blacktown, as well as supporting this council initiative promoting such important charities in the community.”
