Refuse Trucks:

Refuse trucks are voluminous and subject to frequent and sudden "stop and go" requirements. In fact, 1200 or more stops per day is often the norm. As such, Telma retarders are perfectly adapted to this type of vehicle. A Telma frictionless braking system acts as a completely independent back-up braking system, providing 85% of vehicle braking requirements and remains operational whatever the temperature. And because Telma is providing 85% of the vehicle braking needs, Telma practically eliminates brake fade common in this type vehicle application while virtually never wearing out.

Numerous private and public fleets along with local municipalities are aware of the unique advantages of Telma retarders and require that their waste trucks be equipped with Telma for optimal budget management.
