IVECO factory dual control systems

IVECO has offered a factory dual control system since 1992, providing refuse collection companies with an Australian-developed and factory-supported dual control steering set-up.

According to IVECO, unlike some manufacturers who retrofit their vehicles with products from after-market suppliers, the IVECO dual control system as fitted to the ACCO was developed in Australia to suit local conditions and extensively tried and tested in the field to ensure safety and reliability.

The IVECO-engineered dual control system offers a functional design, featuring a cross shaft and mitre box arrangement that does not require an additional steering box. The cabin dash is also duplicated with all the main controls conveniently located in the centre console.

Ease of operation is another key feature of the IVECO system with right-hand-side to left-hand-side drive actuated with the flick of a control switch and a pivoting ‘flip over’ transmission console.

As it’s developed in-house and installed along IVECO’s own local production line, the IVECO dual control system offers significant cost benefits compared to retrofitted systems. Other notable efficiencies arise at the time of maintenance or repair, with faster and more affordable access to parts and servicing via the IVECO dealer network.
