Press Master, released in December 2016, is a press-type garbage collector that aims to improve the efficiency of refuse collection and reduce its workload while enhancing safety. In order to reduce the burden placed on workers, workability was improved by designing the height of the inlet to be about 700 mm or less. In addition, the vehicle's basic performance has been improved by expanding its holding capacity to 4.3 cubic meters (5% more than that of our company's previous product), greatly improving the design, and making it a product that combines practicality with a beautiful and powerful design. Further, Morita Econos' unique highly mounted rear panel integrates lighting equipment and indicators, making it easier to see the vehicle from the rear and thus improving safety.
