Development of an Improved Efficiency, Low-Entry Chassis-Cab for Refuse Applications 952623
A new heavy duty chassis-cab, i.e., “chassis”, for refuse applications, has been designed to improve the productivity of its operator while minimizing his or her physical efforts. The chassis has its operating compartment and controls arranged such that required operator's motions are productive. The chassis features minimize the operator's exertion and maximize his or her comfort, thereby reducing fatigue associated with an otherwise strenuous occupation. This product was developed utilizing a new, structured process involving discrete phases, checkpoints and teams.
