McNeilus Upgrades Zero Radius Arm to Improve Performance and Strengthen Reliability
McNeilus Companies, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company, exhibited an upgraded McNeilus® Zero Radius (ZR) Automated Side Loader, featuring a new arm assembly, at Waste Expo, held last spring at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The new ZR arm offers several enhancements – including a 3.6 m extended reach option – to improve productivity and reliability.
“The upgrades we’ve made make the innovative McNeilus ZR arm even better and more productive than before,” said Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corporation senior vice president and president of the Commercial business segment. “The end product is a stronger and smoother operating arm that can reach farther and perform more efficiently.”
The McNeilus ZR Automated Side Loader’s 3.6 m extended reach arm allows drivers to more efficiently navigate cul-de-sacs and other obstructions such as parked cars. That is just the start. The ZR upgrades also feature a simplified hydraulic design, new components, and redesigned routings. Other advances include structural body upgrades, solid steel rungs on the mast, new carriage rollers and an improved joystick. All upgrades are backed by a new extended warranty. The enhanced ZR is designed to improve performance, simplify maintenance, and strengthen reliability.
“With this portfolio of upgrades, the McNeilus ZR sets a new bar for productivity in the automated side loader segment,” Mr. Nelson said. “These improvements are a direct result of customer feedback to our product team and engineering staff, and we are excited to review its many advantages with haulers, who will see their suggestions translated to an excellent piece of technology in motion.”
