Mack Trucks introduced its Mack LR low-entry cabover refuse model at WasteExpo 2015.
The new truck was built specifically to meet the challenges of refuse customers who require enhanced maneuverability, increased driver comfort and improved visibility. Built with an input from customers, the Mack LR model is available in three-axle 6-by-4 configurations and can be powered by diesel or natural gas.
The cab’s enhanced driver environment 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 LED display.
The 11-liter Mack MP7 diesel engine is standard in the LR model, delivering 325 to 345 horsepower and 1,200 to 1,280 pound-feet of torque. The Cummins Westport ISL G natural gas engine is optional. The LR model is equipped with an Allison RDS five-speed or six-speed automatic transmission.
