SSV10 DVR Monitor. Street Smart Vision by McNeilus brings on-board computers and full routing software to Knight Waste Services with its SSV10 vision system.

DODGE CENTER, Minn. (May 31, 2016) – McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, is supplying Knight Waste Services Ltd., Fort Worth, Texas, with its Street Smart Vision by McNeilus SSV10 system.

The McNeilus SSV10 powered by FleetMind combines a 10.4″ touchscreen monitor, a mobile on-board computer and a DVR platform to enable and interface with an extensive list of software features. High-definition monitors and a comprehensive series of up to eight cameras allow drivers a broader view when monitoring their surroundings. The available fleet management software also empowers managers to track and correct driver behavior and captures and stores video footage.

Additionally, the SSV10 vision system provides optimized routing, reduces maintenance costs and fuel consumption and interfaces with third-party dispatch, billing, maintenance and other applications. McNeilus will install, service and support the system through its expanding network of service center locations across North America.

Knight Waste Services will employ the SSV10 system fleet-wide on its 26 McNeilus automated side load trucks, which provide weekly residential garbage and recycling collection for nearly 90,000 residential accounts in Fort Worth, Texas. The system includes route management software, live streaming video, DVR and driver coaching.

“Implementing the SSV10 vision system will help us verify to the city of Fort Worth that customers are being serviced and provide the city with that information in real time,” said Richard Knight, COO and co-owner of Knight Waste Services. “The system will also enable us to document activities and incidents with video and photos, significantly reducing our liability. Just as importantly, we’re looking forward to better managing our fleet operations and customer service as a result of the information the Street Smart Vision system makes available to us.”

McNeilus Brings Nine Vehicles, 25 Years of Refuse Service and Innovation to Waste Expo

Booth #1402 to showcase restored PacStar Rear Loader, McNeilus’ first entry into the refuse industry.

McNeilus is bringing nine vehicles, including a restored PacStar Rear Loader, and 25 years of refuse service and innovation to Waste Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 7-9 in Las Vegas.

DODGE CENTER, Minn. (May 24, 2016) – McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, is bringing 25 years of service and innovation to WasteExpo 2016, June 7-9 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev. Celebrating 25 years in the refuse industry, the company will showcase two McNeilus vehicles in booth #1402 – a restored PacStar Rear Loader and an enhanced Meridian Front Loader – as well as an IMT Dominator mechanics truck, showcasing the strength and diversity of the Oshkosh Corporation Commercial segment. Six additional McNeilus vehicles will be featured in partner booths throughout the tradeshow.

mcn-25-anniversary-logo-p1“Twenty-five years ago McNeilus entered the market with the PacStar Rear Loader, much like the one we’ll have on display,” said Brad Nelson, president of McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., and Oshkosh Corporation Commercial segment. “During those 25 years we’ve carefully listened to our customers, constantly improving our products and services to exceed their expectations in uptime and performance. Today, our dedicated, direct-to-you sales and support network has grown to include international sales and support.”

At the time of its introduction in 1991, the PacStar Rear Loader set new benchmarks for durability and reliability. The PacStar model on display at the booth, which features a chassis restored by Nuss Truck, hauled 17,621,920 pounds of trash over 87,022 miles in its lifetime. This original workhorse of the McNeilus fleet evolved into the McNeilus Standard Rear Loader and other innovative models that today account for McNeilus sales of more than 24,000 rear loaders.

Gary Husseman of Rockville (Ind.) Trash Removal was the original owner of the restored PacStar, soon after it came out of production. And, he stayed with the McNeilus brand throughout his 26 years in the industry.

“McNeilus packers just perform better than anything else,” said Husseman. “I just like the McNeilus packers better. I’ve never had any major problems with them. They pack all the trash you want them to.”

The McNeilus booth will also feature the innovative and enhanced Meridian Front Loader, which balances a high payload with lower body weight for advanced hauling performance on commercial and residential routes. The truck is an industry leader in durability with a 14-ton carrying capacity. The clear headframe improves accessibility and serviceability, and relocation of hydraulic and electrical components prevents contact with hot exhaust and debris.

The Meridian design also includes 10,000-pound-rated arms, side-of-body electric over hydraulic valves for better control and smoother operation and the largest available hopper access door.

McNeilus’ Street Smart brand will be another primary booth feature, showcasing a dedicated, factory-direct sales and support network. With nearly 30 strategically located North American branches and service centers, local customer support is available before, during and after the sale. McNeilus customers can take advantage of flexible in-house financing options, trade-in and used equipment opportunities, along with a national service team that provides on-site product and service training.

The Street Smart Parts™ display will highlight the 24/7/365 availability of quality OEM parts and parts for any make or model. Street Smart Service™ also offers 24/7 technical support over the phone, and certified technicians are on-call in local service centers to repair or refurbish any make or model. The Street Smart by McNeilus brand also offers solution-based programs and options, such as:

  • Street Smart Vision, offering fleet management software and 360-degree visibility solutions.
  • Street Smart Contamination Control, to help protect and extend the service life of a fleet, and Excalibre™ cylinders, with a patented design that provides the best protection against hydraulic contamination and corrosion.
  • Automated carry can refurbishment program that delivers new-equipment reliability at a lower cost than buying new, ranging from minor repair work to major refurbishments.

Another exclusive McNeilus brand, NGEN™ CNG (compressed natural gas) systems and services, will feature a display detailing the configurations to meet the needs of any fleet vehicle.

Expo attendees will also find these McNeilus vehicles at various locations throughout the convention center:

  • Two Meridian Front Loaders (each with a 40-cubic-yard capacity) at the Peterbilt and Rush Refuse Systems booths
  • M5 Rear Loader (with an 11-cubic-yard capacity) in the Rush Refuse Systems/Hino display area outside the hall
  • Heavy Duty Rear Loader (with a 25-cubic-yard capacity) at the Freightliner booth
  • Atlantic Front Loader, featuring the McNeilus NGEN Tailgate CNG system, at the Mack booth
  • Atlantic Series Front Loader in the Mack Ride & Drive event

Finally, a McNeilus Atlantic Series Front Loader that features a 40-cubic-yard capacity, 10,000-pound-rated arms, Excalibre™ packing cylinders, LED fender lights, hopper work light and camera assist lights, service lift and camera system will be part of a live auction at the Environmental Research & Education Foundation (EREF) booth on Wednesday, June 8 at 4 p.m. The auction generates funds to assist the EREF’s scientific research and educational initiatives for sustainable waste management practices.

McNeilus NGEN Brand Enhances High Capacity Back-of-Cab CNG Fuel System

Innovative system includes back-of-cab horizontal tank installations to extend range.

img_0627_web_edit

McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, announced its industry-leading McNeilus® NGEN™ Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) systems now offer customers an enhanced high capacity, low profile back-of-cab, CNG configuration.

DODGE CENTER, Minn. (May 3, 2016) – McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, announced its industry-leading McNeilus®NGEN™ Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) systems now offer customers an enhanced high capacity, low profile back-of-cab configuration.

“We’ve improved our newest back-of cab system, reducing overall weight and increasing capacity, all while maintaining the lower profile municipalities and construction vehicles with dump body configurations require,” said Lucas Crist, project engineer at McNeilus. “It provides customers with the benefit of all the needed capacity to get them through a full day’s work in a single module with 92 diesel gallon equivalents (DGEs).”

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 than industry standard systems.  Upgrades included three of Luxfer’s new GEN2 G-Stor™ Go type 4 cylinders, 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.

“McNeilus is an industry leader with more than 5,000 NGEN brand CNG equipped vehicles on the road from coast to coast. We offer only fully tested and certified configurations that are backed by a national service network and an expert team to assist customers,” said Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corporation senior vice president and president of the Commercial Business Segment and McNeilus.

The 92 DGE CNG back-of-cab fuel system offers customers exceptional value in innovation, performance, weight, fill time and durability, all backed by the industry’s best service and support network.
