Mack Terrapro Concrete Mp8Announced at the World of Concrete show in Las Vegas this week, Mack’s 13-liter MP8 engine will now be available in its TerraPro concrete pumper truck model.

Mack says the engine “meets increased customer demand for high horsepower and torque in concrete pumper applications,” and the engine will be available in three ratings — 425 hp to 505 hp and 1,760-ft.-lb. of torque — and with special calibrations made specifically for the concrete pumping industry.

“The higher horsepower and torque available with the MP8 provide  effective and efficient operation of the concrete pump under the demanding and variable engine loading conditions that are routinely encountered during operation,” said Curtis Dorwart, Mack vocational product marketing manager. “Concrete pumpers demand incredible power and performance, both of which are offered by the Mack MP8 and Mack TerraPro combination.”
