Mercedes Econic Trucks for Sale (88)

Used Mercedes Econics

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.

Mercedes Econic Refuse Truck

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).

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…

Econic tipper grab

First Mercedes Econic Tipper Grab Loader

Where trucks are working across London, responsible truck operators will increasingly specify low-entry cabs, not just for ease of access, but mainly for improved direct vision and enhanced safety for pedestrians and other road users. Long the mainstay of the refuse collection world, these low entry cabs will be specified as tippers, scaffolding, refrigerated trucks and – as Eurovia Contracting have – grab loaders. The Mercedes Econic is one of the major players in the low entry cab market – although others are starting to play catch up. Eurovia Contracting decided that the safety of its staff and other vulnerable…

Low Entry Cab Seals Deal for Mercedes Econic

Most people looking at the front of an Econic would think “Refuse Truck”.  There are an increasing number of operators recognising the benefits in terms of cab access and all-round visibility that these low entry cabs can offer. Of course, they are not ideal for every operation, but one involving a crew and local work – especially in urban environments – then they should be on every operator’s shortlist for an 18 or 26-tonner. Early Adopter Infrastructure support service leader Amey were an early adopter of the Econics for use in…
