For this the international specialist Jury of the IFOY Awards tested the participating trucks for one week in February on the site of the official logistics partner Hellmann Worldwide Logistics in Osnabrück. As well as their abilities in practical use – mainly with regard to economy, energy efficiency, sustainability, safety, ergonomics and design – the trucks’ innovative value was also assessed.
The RX 60-80 convinced the testers firstly by its handling, which was unusually easy for an 8-tonner, thus providing employees with fundamental support in their daily work. This is made possible by the truck’s compact construction, ergonomic operating concept and good freedom of vision. Moreover, the Jury said that the RX 60-80 represents an innovation in its performance class because in this case solutions for E-trucks have been thought through systematically. These include an effective energy optimisation system and a simplified, time-saving battery change that eliminates the use of underslung cranes.
The testers’ conclusion: "The STILL RX 60-80 8-tonner is powerful and robust, but drives like a 4- to 5-tonner. With this power pack, STILL proves that driving electrically in the heavy segment is now a highly logical and recommendable alternative.”
Laudator Bär affirms: "The winner truck convinces by its power, economy, ergonomics and especially by its high degree of innovation.”
