Mercedes Econic Trucks for Sale (48)

You’ll always find plenty of used Econics for sale at Truckpages – both those that can enter the ULEZ and older, non-Euro 6 models suitable for less congested environments. The Econic is famous for being a rubbish truck.  That doesn’t mean it’s no good – on the contrary – it just means that it has historically been sold for refuse collection duties. The low entry cab and excellent five star all round vision standard sets it out from most other models of truck (perhaps the Dennis Elite aside). We are seeing increasing numbers of Econics fitted with different bodies – especially scaffold bodies and mixers, as they spend most of their lives inside urban environments where direct vision of pedestrians and cyclists is all important. With the Econic you get the quality build and extensive R&D investment that comes from buying the three pointed star.

There are always plenty of used Econics for sale here at Truckpages – make sure you check that the refuse equipment is designed for the job you have in mind. Available as a 4×2, 6×2 or 8×2 the Econic is available with gross vehicle weights of 18, 26 or 32 tonnes. Revised models were introduced in 2006 for Euro 4/5, 2008 for EEV, 2014 for Euro 6, (see detailed timeline below).

Mercedes Econic History

Econic1
The “DirectVision cab” of the Econic makes it possible to enjoy an excellent all-round view of the surrounding traffic thanks to the deep, panoramic windscreen and full-height, glazed folding side door as well as the lower seating position of the driver.

Mercedes Econic Grabloaders Win on Direct Vision

Totally Local Company Limited (TLC) had an exacting set of requirements for its latest trucks, and a pair of Mercedes-Benz Econics met or exceeded every one of them.
