Sears Seating launches latest evolution in comfort for the refuse and recycling industry
C-2 Plus Dual Shock Air Suspension Seats result of comfort research and extensive driver feedback
Sears Seating, a leading manufacturer of off-road and over-the-road suspension seating for over 160 years, launched their latest in comfort innovation for the refuse and recycling industry.
Sears Seating's C-2 Plus Dual Shock air suspension seat offers step change improvement in ride performance and comfort for operators of trucks and other vehicles used in refuse and recycling hauling and collection. The upgrade to Sears' popular seat is the result of comfort research and extensive driver feedback. The upgrades to the C-2's air suspension promote better health and comfort and decrease driver fatigue by further dampening whole body vibration (WBV) transmitted to the operator.
Additional features of the C-2 Plus Dual Shock include ergonomically contoured Fabriform cushions for better comfort and easy maintenance and an optional air lumbar support system to provide greater support to the driver's spine and back. These comfort performance features along with the WBV reduction of the dual shock absorbers work in tandem to lessen fatigue factors to keep drivers alert, healthy and comfortable in a variety of working conditions.
"This new product in the marketplace is an exceptional improvement in ride performance and comfort for an industry that has been begging for a better seating solution for the last 10 years," says Susan Wright, Sears Seating's Director of On-Highway Sales. "Sears is proud to be a preferred solution with many OEMs and fleets."
Sears Seating's C-2 Plus Dual Shock seat is available now through select original equipment manufacturers and Sears' network of aftermarket distributors.

Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
