Autocar donates custom refuse truck to the Environmental Research and Education Foundation
The Mickey Flood Tribute Truck will be on display in Las Vegas at the WasteExpo from June 28 to 30
Autocar is honouring the life and legacy of Charles "Mickey" Flood by donating a custom engineered, full-bodied severe-duty class 8 DC-64R to the 2021 Environmental Research and Education Foundation (EREF) Annual Charitable Auction.
Proceeds from the auction will support the EREF's scientific and educational initiatives for waste management practices. The winning bidder will work with Autocar's engineers to design their new DC-64R refuse truck to their specifications.
The Mickey Flood Tribute Truck comes standard with a Cummins engine. The workspace of the cab fits three and is spacious and functional with ample foot, leg, hip, elbow and shoulder room and a fully adjustable seat and steering column.
According to Autocar, the DC-64R is the first truck ever built to feature ultra-high-strength 160,000 PSI steel frame rails, 24 percent stronger and lighter than other trucks in the market.
EREF's Annual Charitable Auction is open from June 16 to 30. The Mickey Flood Tribute Truck will be on display at the WasteExpo in Las Vegas from June 28 to 30.
