Freightliner 114SD upfitted to roll-off

The Freightliner 114SD uses a clear-back-of-cab chassis that is ideal for upfit to a range of configurations for refuse and recyclables haul and collection applications, including side-loaders, rear loaders, hook-lift or roll-on/roll-off. These trucks use a Detroit engine and are built for excellent fuel economy and off-road toughness.  

According to Freightliner, one of their current customers using the roll-on/roll-off configuration had the following to say about the 114SD; “These trucks are getting a little better than six miles per gallon, which is outstanding for short-run hauling. The turning radius is a lot better than other trucks we’ve used, visibility is excellent, and the ride is very good for a truck.”  

The 114SD is available with multiple PTO options, up to 450 horsepower and 1,650 lb-ft. of torque, up to 50-degree wheel cut, and as of November, 2013, with twin steer chassis prep kits designed to facilitate aftermarket conversions and installation of second steer axle and heavy-duty suspensions, resulting in faster delivery to the customer.

From mushrooms to rooftops

Compost Supply acquired a Doppstadt SM 726 trommel screen to expand their capacity.

From the lowly mushroom to high up on the rooftops, Compost Supply has found quite a few applications for their products over the years. Their first foray into compost was to provide Campbell’s (yes, that Campbell’s) with a mushroom growth medium; most recently, they became the licensed regional blender of rooflite soil for eco roof systems. What has remained consistent over that more than three decades of evolution is their steady commitment to creating a quality product. And as the variety of available source fractions has grown, additional effort and attention has gone into making sure the ratios and mixes still result in a valuable outcome.
