Terra Pro models built to excel in harsh conditions
Back in May, Mack Trucks displayed its TerraPro refuse series lineup at Waste Expo. Six EPA2010-certified TerraPro Low Entry and Cabover models were on display at the show, each of which are engineered and built to excel in the harsh and demanding world of refuse and recycling applications, while providing operators with a safe, comfortable and ergonomically designed cab.
Five of the TerraPro models displayed are powered by the MACK MP7 diesel engine and are equipped with the company’s ClearTech selective catalytic reduction system, which produces near-zero emissions while improving fuel economy. The sixth TerraPro model at the show was equipped with a Cummins Westport ISL-G natural gas engine.
Two of the TerraPro models at the show were also equipped with Mack’s new Control Link II body control console which provides a clean and simple electrical and electronic interface between the chassis and all refuse bodies. This new in-cab, integrated control panel provides an ergonomically friendly and clean design to increase productivity and reduce operator fatigue. In the past, each body company would have installed and wired its own control interface, placing add-on control boxes in the cab as space permitted.
According to Mack, Control Link II brings a “plug and play” interface to refuse body installation, eliminating the need for expensive and complex custom wiring solutions, while at the same time improving overall electrical and electronic system reliability.
