GREENSBORO, NC – Mack Trucks, a longtime leader in diesel-powered refuse vehicles, is now leading the pack in natural gas, with three natural gas-powered MACK TerraPro models – two Cabover and one Low Entry.
The natural gas-powered TerraPro model, equipped with a Cummins Westport ISL-G natural gas engine, offers an alternative fuel engine technology that combines the advantages of natural gas with the power and performance customers have come to expect from Mack.
“Natural gas is readily available in the U.S. and is a viable solution for the refuse segment,” said Curtis Dorwart, Mack vocational products marketing manager. “As the dominant supplier of heavy-duty refuse trucks, our customers have turned to Mack for solutions, and we have responded with natural gas-powered versions of our TerraPro Cabover and TerraPro Low Entry models built to withstand the rigorous needs of their applications.”
The TerraPro natural gas models meet EPA 2010 and CARB emissions levels and set a new benchmark for lower alternative fuel vehicle lifecycle costs and lower maintenance costs, improving customers’ return on investment.
The TerraPro Cabover with tandem steering is equipped with a low-weight chassis and Simard suspension, which was adapted to optimize payload capacity. The tandem-steer TerraPro Cabover at Waste Expo will be in a front loader configuration and is powered by a MACK MP7 325 horsepower Maxidyne diesel engine.
“The load-equalizing tandem-steer TerraPro model enables greater payload to maximize revenue for our customers,” Dorwart said. “The twin steer feature coupled with a low-weight chassis allows certain Canadian applications an extra edge in productivity.”
