Mack Trucks Brings Extensive Refuse Lineup to WasteExpo 2018

04-19-2018 
GREENSBORO, NC (April 19, 2018) – Mack Trucks will highlight versatility and application excellence with a range of trucks ready to handle demanding refuse and recycling applications, including the Mack® LR model, at WasteExpo 2018, April 24–26 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The LR model features a comfortable driver-focused design for improved productivity and enhanced visibility for increased safety. Mack’s newest offering in the refuse segment, the LR is available in a 6x4 configuration and a lighter, more maneuverable 4x2 configuration and is powered by diesel or natural gas.

Visitors to Mack booth No. 1845 will also have the chance to see the LR model’s new multi-position seat, developed by Sears Seating exclusively for Mack. The seat is engineered to boost comfort and ergonomics for operators in a right-hand stand-up/sit-down drive configuration.

Mack Over The Air is also now available on refuse vehicles, including the LR, Mack Granite® and Mack TerraPro® models equipped with 2017 or newer Mack engines. Mack Over The Air enables software updates for powertrain components and vehicle parameters like road speed limits.

Mack Over The Air is powered by Mack’s fully integrated telematics solution, Mack GuardDog® Connect, which delivers software updates directly to customers when it’s convenient for their operations.

GuardDog Connect proactively monitors truck performance, detecting fault codes and enabling real-time diagnosis of issues that could lead to unplanned downtime. Working with the Mack ASIST online service management system and Mack OneCall™ uptime agents in Mack’s 24/7 Uptime Center in Greensboro, North Carolina, GuardDog Connect maximizes customer uptime by scheduling repairs and confirming that needed parts are in stock and ready to install, all while the truck is still on the road.

All of Mack uptime services are a part of Mack Connect, a comprehensive suite of tools that integrates intelligent software, predictive analytics and driver assist technologies to help customers manage productivity and profitability.
