- Mack Trucks is rolling out the Mack LR low-entry cabover refuse model truck, which the company said is built to meet the needs of its waste and recycling customers who require enhanced maneuverability, increased driver comfort, and improved visibility.
- The Mack LR model, built with input from customers, is available in three-axle 6-by-4 configurations and can be powered by diesel or natural gas.
- The cab includes tilt and telescopic steering columns, power windows and power door locks, memory mirrors, in-dash air conditioning, standard in-cab LED lighting, and an instrument cluster with color LCD display.
Safety and comfort are important for drivers, and Mack has listened to its customers. Other features of the LR include additional access points and mounting locations for wiring, controls, and joysticks.
"The Mack LR model is the latest example of our commitment to application excellence," Stephen Roy, president of Mack Trucks North America, told Recycling Today. "By incorporating customer feedback into the LR design, we’ve built a safer, more comfortable work environment for drivers, boosting productivity and driver retention."
By providing the option for the trucks to run on compressed natural gas (CNG), Mack is aligning with a major trend that companies are adopting for their fleets.
