Probably one of the least appreciated, hardest working vehicles are the trash collection truck. The engines in these vehicles have a difficult service duty of constant stop and go and demands for hydraulic and other parasitic equipment drawing on the engine power. In addition, trash haulers are frequently in more dusty conditions, which expose engines to higher silica contamination.
Many trash haulers now operate with natural gas engines. Abrasive particles in the oil film are especially harmful for natural gas engines. ECO MicroFilters extends the life of the engine, providing better preventative maintenance, longer engine life, and longer oil drain intervals.
