Buffalo Bull EFB for long-distance trucks

Starter and on-board batteries in the commercial vehicle field must fulfil a growing variety of special needs, such as the maximum energy demand emanating from the increasing number of comfort functions in long-distance trucks.

Drivers often spend the night in their vehicles and use various electrical consumers. Moreover, in the case of battery integration into the rear chassis, extreme vibration-resistance is essential.

Banner, distributed in Ireland by Europower Battery Centre, has launched the new Buffalo Bull EFB onto the market for precisely these toughest requirements.

These days, a long-distance truck is more than just a means of transporting goods from A to B – it is the driver’s workplace and home for often three nights per week and therefore the Buffalo Bull EFB has been designed specifically for this situation.
