International Truck and Engine Corp. recently displayed some of its top severe service trucks at the 2006 Global Petroleum Show in Calgary, Alberta. Reaffirming its commitment to the oil field market, International showcased a sample of its trucks that have driven the company to be a leader in the vocational truck market.

“International severe service trucks have been very popular with construction, municipal and waste customers, and now is the time for us to put more emphasis on the growing oil and gas market,” said Bill Sixsmith, director of severe service marketing at Warrenville, Ill.-based International Truck and Engine. “The company is committed to providing customers in this field with a full-range of reliable trucks and a global network of dealers for support.”

At the world’s largest oil and gas event, International trucks on display included:

  • The International 7500 set-back axle 6×4 with a crane body designed and fabricated by Hydraco Industries. International’s crane support truck features an International HT570, 330-horsepower engine.
  • The International PayStar 5600i 10×6 with a dump body and a 475-horsepower Caterpillar C15 ACERT engine.
  • International’s line of Class 6-8 off-highway trucks make up International’s severe service division. These truck models are built specifically to meet the rigorous demands of vocational customers in the field.

    “From the world-class design and testing center in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, to the superior manufacturing facility in Garland, Texas, International’s line of work trucks deliver for customers worldwide,” said Sixsmith. “Plus, we have the largest dealer network that can provide the right parts, service and financing options for 360-degree support.”
