Mack Trucks, at the WasteExpo in Las Vegas, announced several updates to its LR model, including a sliding glass window on the passenger side, an exterior stainless steel sun visor and a Sears Seating C2 PLUS seat cushion.
Mack also extended its 315 series tire coverage to include the Hendrickson HAULMAAX suspension.
Curtis Dorwart, refuse product manager for Mack Trucks, says the updates improve the working environment for the driver, help increase visibility and provide customers with additional choices in how their vehicles can be set up.
The new sliding glass window, which will be standard and available for order in Q2 2018, improves cab ventilation and access to the mirror during right-hand stand-up or sit down operation.
The exterior stainless steel sun visor reduces glare and better deflects heat, improving driver comfort and safety. The stainless steel sun visor is now available for order.
The C2 PLUS seat cushion, available with Sears air suspension seats, provides additional comfort on the job. Mack’s new multi-position seat developed exclusively for the Mack LR by Sears Seating offers multiple-positions for right-hand operation, allowing greater adjustability and comfort, whether seated or standing. The seat back and seat base both are adjustable, allowing drivers to more comfortably operate the truck and joystick controls. The C2 PLUS seat cushion and multi position seat will be standard and available for order in Q2 2018.
The ability to now spec Mack Granite, TerraPro and LR models with 315 series tires in all wheel positions offers a simplified ordering process for customers, while also enabling customers to more efficiently manage their tire programs. Expanded coverage of 315 series tires will be available for order in Q2 2018.
