Company selects McNeilus for back-of-cab installation.
McNeilus announced that Pride Disposal of Portland, Oregon, has selected NGEN CNG Systems and Services by McNeilus for its newest fleet of roll-off trucks.
DODGE CENTER, Minn. (March 24, 2015) – McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, announced that Pride Disposal of Portland, Oregon, has selected the NGEN Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) system by McNeilus for its newest fleet of roll-off trucks.
“We’re excited to have NGEN CNG Systems and Services by McNeilus selected by Pride Disposal for these roll-off vehicles,” said Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corporation senior vice president and president of the Commercial Business Segment. “We have an excellent back-of-cab configuration that’s ideal for this application, one of many CNG installation options available for severe duty fleets of all types.”
“We’re a company that is always looking to the future, and we decided to start running some of our trucks on CNG primarily because of fuel cost and the savings CNG delivers,” said Pride Disposal Fleet Manager, Bill Woody. “We chose the McNeilus NGEN CNG system because of its simplicity, reliability, and close-at-hand parts and service network. Plus, McNeilus technicians are close by when we need recertification of the system’s components.”
McNeilus is an industry leader with more than 5,000 NGEN CNG vehicles on the road from coast to coast. McNeilus NGEN systems are now available on a wider range of vehicle types including construction, delivery, over-the-road, and other severe-duty fleets. NGEN CNG Systems and Services are available on new vehicles and retrofits through the company’s national network of regional installation centers.
McNeilus NGEN CNG-powered trucks are built with both the operator and service team in mind. The company’s exclusive fuel management module reduces the number of fittings and increases reliability, while the fuel storage pods feature lightweight DOT Type 4 tanks. McNeilus systems meet all NFPA-52 standards and are installed by the company’s team of factory-trained technicians. McNeilus carries a comprehensive inventory of replacement parts on hand at its regional installation centers.
Pride Disposal was one of the first haulers in its region to fully automate solid waste collection. The company owns and maintains a fleet of 40 trucks, and began shifting to CNG in 2010. “Cleaner engines and exhaust systems, and reduced maintenance needs are other benefits we experience with the shift to CNG,” said Woody. “Plus, the environmental benefits of CNG powered vehicles are an important consideration for us and the communities we serve.”
