The building housed all six of the city&rsquo;s refuse collection and recycling trucks. All of them were destroyed. Scott Broadwell, President of Oberlin&rsquo;s City Council, said it was fortunate that no one was injured in the incident, and leadership for the city of Oberlin acted quickly by renting two trucks to begin waste collection the following Tuesday.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/waste-management/ohio-town-welcomes-first-hydraulic-hybrid-garbage-trucks" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/waste-management/ohio-town-welcomes-first-hydraulic-hybrid-garbage-trucks#comments Accumulators Hydraulic Pumps & Motors Rail, Truck & Bus Waste Management News Mon, 05 Jan 2015 20:02:00 +0000 29951 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Ameripride Takes Delivery of First Hydraulic Hybrid Truck http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/rail-truck-bus/ameripride-takes-delivery-first-hydraulic-hybrid-truck <div class="node-body article-body">Lightning Hybrids provides system that reduces emissions and cuts fuel costs</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/rail-truck-bus/ameripride-takes-delivery-first-hydraulic-hybrid-truck" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/rail-truck-bus/ameripride-takes-delivery-first-hydraulic-hybrid-truck#comments Accumulators Rail, Truck & Bus Fri, 14 Nov 2014 15:27:00 +0000 29801 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Simulation Helps Manufacturer Improve HST Design http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/other-components/simulation-helps-manufacturer-improve-hst-design <div class="field-byline"> Bruce Pilgrim </div> <div class="field-deck"> Imagining new solutions through improved understanding enables Poclain Hydraulics to improve the performance and efficiency of hydrostatic transmission components and systems. </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Engineers have been able to simulate transmission behavior with the aid of software, solving problems quicker and less expensively.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/other-components/simulation-helps-manufacturer-improve-hst-design" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/other-components/simulation-helps-manufacturer-improve-hst-design#comments Rail, Truck & Bus Other Components Mon, 07 Apr 2014 14:03:00 +0000 26061 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com A pneumatic locomotive? http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/rail-truck-amp-bus/pneumatic-locomotive <div class="node-body article-body"><p> Pneumatics is often used where the potential dangers of electricity pose too great a risk for electrical power to be used.
