Mercedes Econic Trucks for Sale (77)

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).

Used Mercedes Econics

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

The Econic was originally launched way back in 1998 and sold as many as 8,000 units in its first ten years.

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. The Mercedes-Benz Econic was therefore honoured with a five-star rating as part of London’s “DirectVision Standards” guideline.

Safety is Key to Mercedes Econic Deal

The workshop is familiar with them, they are reliable over a ten-year working life, but the key factor in Moray council choosing four new Econics was the safety features. All but three of Moray Council’s 29 refuse collection trucks are Mercedes trucks. Vehicle Services & Compliance Manager John Pearson said: “We know from experience that the Econic is highly dependable over a 10-year working life, during which it provides excellent value for money thanks to low running costs and minimal downtime. “It also helps that our in-house technicians are very experienced when it comes to maintaining the fleet, and can…

New Mercedes-Benz Econic impact protection vehicles for Council

It makes perfect sense for a council to buy the truck that is safest to use – especially when the truck is involved with erecting safety cones and other traffic management duties. The cone-carrying Econics are the first trucks that Days Fleet has sourced from Euro Commercials That’s what Cardiff Council procurement chiefs did when they ordered two new Mercedes-Benz Econics to help traffic flow smoothly in and around the city. Based on low-entry 18-tonne Econic chassis supplied by South Wales Dealer Euro Commercials, the impact protection vehicles (IPV) are the subject of a lease agreement with Swansea-based Days Fleet,…

Council Buys Mercedes Econics for Refuse Collections

The most impressive piece of news is that local councils are actually investing in infrastructure for providing services to the residents of the borough. Many councils will outsource the work or underinvest in a fleet renewal programme, but the ULEZ is forcing the hands of some boroughs. Lewisham has acquired no fewer than 39 Econics over the last few years. The council’s latest order of 24 Econics went to Mercedes-Benz Dealer Orwell Truck & Van to complete their waste collection and recycling vehicle replacement programme, adding to the 15 Econics acquired a couple of years ago. One of Lewisham Council's…

Dennis Eagle in Mercedes Econic Deal

Well, we are confused.  It seems that Dennis Eagle won the tender for Reigate & Banstead council’s new refuse trucks.  Nothing out of the ordinary there.  However they are supplying eleven new Mercedes-Benz Econics.  The trucks are fitted with Dennis Eagle Olympus Twin Pack compaction bodies, so there you are. Crystal clear. The Econics were supplied by Mercedes Dealer City West Commercials and are significantly cleaner in terms of emissions than the seven-year-old vehicles they have replaced. Their OmniDEL triple bin lifts, meanwhile, are electrically operated – not only are they quieter than the lifts used on previous refuse collection…

Mercedes Econic 2629 Trucks (40)

The 2629 was effectively replaced by the newer Econic 2630. Unless retrofitted to meet the standards, these pre 2014 models will not be allowed to operate in low emission zones, (such as the London ULEZ) so operators are starting to upgrade to the newer models.

Many of these Econics will therefore be heading towards right hand drive export markets where Euro 6 is not mandatory in city centres.
