McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, announced an expansion of its industry-leading McNeilus® NGEN™ Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) system offerings with a new high capacity back-of-cab CNG configuration that provides 88 diesel gallon equivalents (DGEs) packaged in a low profile design.

DODGE CENTER, Minn. (February 26, 2016) – McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, announced an expansion of its industry-leading McNeilus® NGEN™ Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) system offerings with a new high capacity back-of-cab CNG configuration that provides 88 diesel gallon equivalents (DGEs) packaged in a low profile design.

“The new McNeilus 88 DGE system offers another lightweight, high-capacity option formunicipalities and construction vehicles with dump body configurations that require a lower profile,” said Lucas Crist, project engineer at McNeilus. “It provides customers with the benefit of all the needed capacity for a full day’s work in a single module.”

Ideal for fleets with class 7 and class 8 trucks, the NGEN brand system uses an exclusive, streamlined design with 50 percent fewer fitting connections and 25 percent fewer plumbing components. Three Luxfer G-Stor™ Go type 4 cylinders are used, optimizing the overall weight of the system and minimizing the height to meet low-clearance specifications. Each cylinder is fitted with a Luxfer G-Flo™ One-turn Valve that not only extends vehicle range by providing more usable gas at the required flow rate, but also significantly increases the filling flow rate. A dedicated pressure-relief device (PRD) system spans the full length of each cylinder and provides continuous heat protection.

The system also features a fully enclosed structure with easy access door, maintenance-friendly o-ring face seal connections and North American-manufactured CNC formed high pressure lines.  Future plans to build off this new design will make the system scalable with customizable capacity options.

“McNeilus is an industry leader with more than 5,000 NGEN CNG vehicles on the road from coast to coast. We engineer a variety of mounting options and fuel capacities to meet customer needs, with new configurations constantly in development,” said Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corporation senior vice president and president of the Commercial Business Segment and McNeilus. “We offer only fully tested and certified configurations that are backed by a national service network and an expert team that can assist customers as they navigate the transition to CNG.”

McNeilus Celebrates 25 Years in the Refuse Industry

In 1991, McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing entered the market with its first refuse truck – the PacStar Rear Loader.

McNeilus began producing its first rear-loading refuse vehicle in 1991. Since then, the product lineup has grwon with innovations in front-loading and automated side-loading refuse trucks, along with several models of rear-loading vehicles. Today, McNeilus also has 28 branch locations across North America.

DODGE CENTER, Minn. (Feb. 11, 2016) – McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) company, is proud to announce 25years of service to the refuse industry. In 1991, McNeilus entered the market with the PacStar Rear Loader. This year, McNeilus celebrates its silver anniversary and a host of accomplishments over those 25 years, including building a superior factory-direct support and service network and growing a product line of top-performing refuse truck bodies.

25th-anniversary-logo-with-trucksMcNeilus has a history of exceptional customer service, and over the years the company has worked hard to build what now can be called the industry’s best direct support and service network. Today, McNeilus has 28 branch locations across North America, with 20 of those locations opening in just the past 15 years. This factory-direct model includes parts & service locations, mobile on-site assistance, and teams of product, service, and training experts with hundreds of years of combined industry experience.

Along with building strong relationships with its customers, McNeilus aims for market leading innovation by developing products and technology that exceed customer expectations in uptime and performance. Since 1991, an impressive array of front loading and automated side loading products have been added to the portfolio, providing premier lift, reach and carrying capacity. What once was the PacStar rear loader has evolved into the McNeilus Standard Rear Loader. Several other innovative models have also been added to the rear loader product lineup over the years. In fact, McNeilus has sold nearly 24,000 rear loaders since production of refuse vehicles began.

Other more recent innovations include the launch of the new Meridian Front Loader, the McNeilus Rear Loader Organics package and McNeilus CODE™, a powerful on-demand controls system with complete diagnostic capability.

“We are proud to have been able to serve the refuse industry for 25 years, and we continue to build on our track record of meeting and exceeding our customers’ expectations,” said Brad Nelson, president of McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing and the Oshkosh Commercial Segment. “Over the years, we have shown there are more and more reasons people continue to choose McNeilus.”

One of McNeilus’ first refuse customers, and owner of one in the first batch of PacStar rear loaders ever produced, can say he’s been one of those satisfied customers from the beginning. Gary Husseman was the owner and operator of Rockville Trash Removal in Rockville, Ind., until he retired recently. He spent 26 years in the refuse business and remains loyal to the McNeilus brand.

Over the years, Husseman moved from the PacStar to a rear loader with more compaction – the McNeilus Heavy Duty Rear Loader. He stayed with McNeilus because he says the McNeilus packers just performed better than anything else. Along with his other McNeilus trucks, the old 1991 PacStar was still in use, too, when he retired.

“I used [the PacStar] as my [secondary] truck. Everything was still running good on it,” he said. “I never had any major problems with my McNeilus trucks.”

With his experience working in the industry, he was often asked about which trucks he used. Husseman says he recommended McNeilus trucks to people all the time, not only because of the quality he saw in the products but because of the experiences he had with its people. Even now that he’s retired, “I still recommend McNeilus,” he said. “I’ve liked everyone I ever dealt with.”

“That kind of brand loyalty is a testament to the high quality products and services that we provide,” Nelson said. “And, we strive every day to earn strong relationships with our customers that keep them choosing McNeilus for years to come.”

McNeilus’ 25 years of refuse products and its history of superior innovation and and service will be major themes for the company during the 2016 Waste Expo Convention & Expo later this year at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

McNeilus Introduces Used Equipment and Trade-In Program

Program makes it easier for customers to expand and/or upgrade fleets.

McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., introduces used equipment and trade-in program, making it easer for customers to expand and/or upgrade fleets.

DODGE CENTER, Minn. (Feb. 2, 2016) – McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, is introducing a used equipment and trade-in program at World of Concrete 2016 (booth #C6545), beginning today at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev. The new program offers quality, pre-owned mixers of all makes and models, and provides current owners the opportunity to trade up to the latest McNeilus® models.

“The McNeilus program we’re launching today will make it easier for customers to affordably upgrade and/or expand their fleet of vehicles,” says Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corporation senior vice president and president of the Commercial Business Segment and McNeilus. “As an alternative to buying new, customers can purchase quality pre-owned mixers and be confident the equipment will serve them well, long after the purchase date. Or, they can trade their equipment for credit toward the purchase of a new mixer. In both cases, customers have the opportunity to enhance their fleets with a newer model that offers technology upgrades, improved fuel economy, customization options, and greater comfort.”

The McNeilus sales staff stands ready to help ready-mix producers find the right vehicle to meet their needs at an attractive price. In the case of a trade-in, McNeilus will take care of finding a new home for the old mixer.

McNeilus also offers a variety of flexible in-house financing options and reminds customers of the tax advantages that come with trade-in purchases. Most states require that sales tax be paid only on the difference between the price of the trade-in and the purchase price of the new vehicle.

Additionally, all pre-owned equipment is backed by McNeilus’ industry-leading support network of nearly 30 strategically located North American branches and service centers. Support is available before, during and after the sale, serving customers both locally and nationally.

With the purchase of any pre-owned equipment, McNeilus’ Street Smart Service offers additional repair and refurbishment services, giving new life to pre-owned equipment while saving money and reducing downtime for fleets. The refurbishment program includes several options that meet or exceed OEM specifications, ranging from minor repair work to major refurbishments.
