Capacity SabreCapacity Trucks, a maker of terminal trucks for port, intermodal and warehousing applications, announced its new Sabre truck during a press conference at the Technology & Maintenance Council’s Annual Meeting in Nashville.

The Sabre, features military-grade, 110,000 p.s.i. steel frame rails that are much stronger than existing terminal trucks, said Scott Lord, president. Other features include better-placed service points and multiplex wiring and routing for easier access and quicker maintenance times.

The Sabre also features new cab suspension tuning and seat to provide the driver a more comfortable work environment.

According to Capacity Trucks, the Sabre underwent extensive durability testing during development, including 96,000 boom hooks and door open/close cycles, as well as on- and off-road test track simulations.

“Working with our parent company, Allied Specialty Vehicles, our customers, dealers and employees, we have created one of the most important, evolutionary products in the history of Capacity Trucks,” said Lord. “Sabre has been tested, engineered and designed like no other in the industry. We’ve built a truck that delivers the lowest total cost of operation, as well as the durability and reliability that are essential to our customers’ success.”

With the introduction of the Sabre, Capacity Trucks will phase out its existing line of terminal trucks, including the TJ 5000, TJ 7000 and TJ 9000 models.
