International on Tuesday at the World of Concrete Show in Las Vegas unveiled its Mid-Range Diesel (MRD) HV Series, which includes a bridge formula truck for the concrete industry.

The HV507 and HV607 models are powered by either a Cummins B6.7 or L9 engines and have a 107-inch BBC dimension, making them shorter than the HV513 and HV613, and complete the transition from previous International WorkStar models.

The International HV507 bridge formula model chassis includes an aggressive set forward front axle, the Cummins L9 engine, and a rear-engine power take-off (REPTO).

Every HV Series can be equipped as an option with OnCommand Connection, the company’s remote diagnostics system and Over-the-air (OTA) programming. OTA, available through the nine-pin International LINK device, enables drivers or fleet managers to utilize a mobile interface to initiate authorized engine programming at the customer’s facility over a safe, secure Wi-Fi Connection. The service offers drivers and fleets an easy, secure means of updating engine control modules to reflect the latest manufacturer-approved calibrations, without the necessity of visiting a dealer or other service facility.

The HV also includes Diamond Logic, an advanced electrical system that streamlines chassis and body equipment integration and allows customers to program automated tasks.

The HV Series is available in Regular Cab, Extended Cab and Crew Cab. The company is taking orders today for expected March market availability.
