McNeilus shows commitment to industry, showcases performance upgrades at Waste Expo 2017
Charity auction items, new refuse vehicle enhancements and technology, and new Street Smart Vision and service options take center stage.
McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc. is bringing its best in refuse vehicle innovations, along with expanded aftermarket options and technology, to WasteExpo 2017. The company is also highlighting its longtime support of valuable industry organizations with donations to the Environmental Research & Education Foundation (EREF) charity auction, taking place throughout the convention.
The McNeilus Atlantic Series Front Loader®, featuring a 40-cubic-yard capacity, 10,000-pound-rated arms, Excalibre™ packing cylinders, service lift and camera system, will be part of a live auction at the EREF booth on Wednesday, May 10. The auction generates funds to assist the EREF’s scientific research and educational initiatives for sustainable waste management practices.
McNeilus is also donating to the EREF’s silent auction with a pair of tickets to NASCAR’s NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway. These tickets also come with exclusive pit passes for two, donated courtesy of Go Fas Racing car #32 team owner Archie St. Hillarie and McNeilus. Bids for the silent auction can be placed by texting “EREF17” to phone number 24700, or in-person throughout the show.
In McNeilus booth #2235, the company is showcasing two vehicles – a Meridian™ Front Loader and Zero Radius™ Side Loader, both with new body enhancements – as well as interactive displays on the McNeilus CODE™ controls system and Street Smart Vision 10 fleet management system. Eight additional McNeilus vehicles will be featured in partner booths throughout the tradeshow.
