Hybrid Sewer Truck

City of Fort Wayne, Ind., designed and built a hybrid sewer jet truck in 2010 and 2011 after Larry Campbell, CPFP, fleet management director, was inspired by electrical side bucket trucks. Fleet staff worked with International and Eaton to develop the vehicle, aiming for a unit that would do the same work while lowering fuel use and emissions.

The hybrid drive motor powers the transmission (ePTO mode). The vehicle is in use every day and uses 30% less in fuel than a non-hybrid vehicle, Campbell reported.
