Abstract : NAVFAC EXWC conducted demonstration validation testing on two heavy hybrid truck platforms. The first platform included a hybrid hydraulic refuse truck for curbside collection of recyclables. The second platform included a hybrid electric utility truck with an aerial lift system (i.e., bucket truck) for electric power line maintenance. The demonstration included a baseline evaluation at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD, followed by in-use operator testing at Bangor WA, and San Diego CA. The performance objectives included fuel economy, noise levels, brake wear, ease-of-use, maintainability, and drivability.
