LAS VEGAS  (February 4, 2013) – Mack Trucks today announced that its 13-liter MACK® MP8 engine is available in the MACK® TerraPro™ concrete pumper.

            The engine meets increased customer demand for high horsepower and torque in concrete pumper applications.

Ratings of the MP8 range from 425 to 505 horsepower and 1,760 ft.-lb. torque, offering maximum power for demanding concrete pumper applications.
