Peterbilt introduces new cab configurations for refuse hauling
Peterbilt has introduced three new cab configurations for the rugged Model 520. The innovative vocational model is now available in Left-Hand Drive, Right-Hand Drive and Right-Hand Stand-Up Drive in addition to the existing Dual Seated Drive configuration, the company announced. Peterbilt introduced the Model 520 in the Dual Seated Drive configuration in 2016 providing drivers the ability to operate the vehicle from either the left or right position to optimize ergonomics, efficiency and safety.
The Left-Hand Drive and Right-Hand Drive configurations provide a comfortable seated driving position while in transit or performing curbside operations. The redesigned Right-Hand Stand-Up cab configuration provides ease of ingress / egress for those applications that require the driver to exit the cab multiple times during the route reducing driver fatigue. Driver ergonomics are further enhanced by standard adjustable seat, angled steering wheel and dead-pedal to rest their left foot during operation.
“The Model 520 provides superior performance and adaptability in rugged operating environments,” says Robert Woodall, Assistant General Manager of Sales and Marketing.
“Offering a full lineup of cab configurations for the refuse market further enhances the versatility of this vocational vehicle for our customers’ operations.” Among the Model 520’s many standard features are pantographic wipers, which improvevisibility by providing 30 percent more coverage of the windshield surface and RP-170 body
connections to seamlessly integrate with outfitted bodies.
The Model 520 is available with a wide range of engines, including the PACCAR PX-9, PACCAR MX-11 and Cummins ISX12 diesel engines, as well as the Cummins ISL-G, ISL-G
Near Zero and ISX12-G natural gas engines.
