The first professional spreader 100% electric
For medium-sized and heavy trucks.
Phoenix Electra is the first professional spreader 100% electric and represents our commitment to a sustainable future.
The great challenge was to develop a green solution keeping the highest performance typical of Bucher municipal products; the result is revolutionary equipment able to comply with the strictest market requirements, with no compromises on performances, and to raise the standard to a higher level.
Get to know the Phoenix Electra spreader
Electra doesn’t require any special modification to the truck, offering a simplest fleet management!
The carrier vehicle doesn't need any modification because this equipment does not need connections to the truck or the control box, it is a real “plug and play” that can be mounted on each truck having adequate load capacity, savings all costs related to the truck installation and equipment. The control system is designed to enable the maximum tuning accuracy resulting in extremely precise spreading operations. Beside, using a standard truck is it possible rent the vehicle just for the necessary time.
What makes Electra very special is the sustainability both in terms of environment/noise pollution and costs saving over time.
Phoenix Electra is a lot quieter compared to traditional solutions, zero impact and it needs minimum maintenance during lifetime. This solution makes it particularly suitable for the urban areas, where noise and pollution reduction play a leading role but grants also the lowest Life-Cycle Cost to all users. On this spreader a high efficiency electric system 48V replaces the traditional hydraulic systems, with lithium battery and brushless motors with dedicated and integrated inverter. This solution avoids power losses and allows independent and proportional energy absorptions and management for each motor. Moreover, the lithium technology allows the battery partial charge during the salt refilling operation, even if the battery is not flat.
Battery pack - Up to 9000 working hours expectation
The lithium battery is protected in a dedicated compartment, with easy access for maintenance. Its technology allows the partial charge. The battery is covered by a special overcoat that protects it against low temperatures granting the possibility to work till -20° C.
Innovative tools for the service responsible as well as for the driver.
Those tools reduces the operator workload while allowing him to comply with operational procedures. Thanks to man-machine collaboration, improving winter road maintenance quality. Accessible from everywhere, using a simple internet connection; all the tools used for winter services management are available through a single web portal. Real-time weather analysis, telemetric and road morphology studies offer to the service responsible all necessary data to create precise winter maintenance mission, anytime and anywhere.

Winter service supported by space technology and the cloud
ASSIST enables cost-effective, flexible and efficient winter services thanks to its innovative tools for the service responsible as well as for the driver.
ASSIST reduces the operator workload while allowing him to comply with operational procedures, due to the man-machine collaboration, improving the winter road maintenance quality.
Accessible from everywhere, using a simple internet connection; all the tools used for winter services management are available through a single web portal.
Real-time weather analysis, telemetric and road morphology studies offer to the service responsible all necessary data to create precise winter maintenance missions, anytime and anywhere with the guarantee to carry out the exact planned procedure.
Winter maintenance operators are helped by an automated system, able to adjust autonomously each spreading parameter. This means that the equipment always applies the exact dosage with the right pattern.
The on-board unit includes an accurate GPS navigation system able to guide the operator with visual and vocal messages.
Automated spreading combined with satellite navigation, results in economic use of de-icing materials, the best winter maintenance operations with any level of driver skills while reducing their workload.
