Mack Unveils TerraPro Refuse Models


The new TerraPro Series from Mack Trucks, Inc. includes the TerraPro Low Entry and the TerraPro Cabover. The construction industry version of the TerraPro Cabover was introduced at the World of Concrete, in Las Vegas, in January. Refuse customers had the opportunity to see the complete TerraPro Series at Waste Expo, in Atlanta, earlier this month.

"Mack designed the TerraPro Series models from the inside out, based on many decades of experience in the refuse business," said Steve Ginter, Mack vocational products manager. "The TerraPro Series takes everything we learned with the Mack® MR and LE models, and gives customers the most versatile and comfortable trucks Mack has ever built for the refuse industry."

TerraPro Low Entry comes with many features designed for the specific needs of the refuse industry. Its cab height provides easy one-step entry and exit. It has the largest door openings in the industry, and its dual-steer design enhances driver flexibility and productivity with all critical controls duplicated on each side of the cab.

The Mack Work Brake System includes fail-safe features. Moving the brake's hand lever activates the brake and engages the service brakes, thereby holding the truck's position during refuse collection. Releasing the brake and engaging the transmission also requires only one movement. This feature saves time for drivers in high-cycle operations and reduces wear and tear on brake components.

The interior of the TerraPro Series is as efficient and productive as it is comfortable. Its low-profile electronic dash enhances visibility while at the same time incorporating comprehensive driver information displays.

The TerraPro Series features the next generation of Mack's V-MAC® management system which includes DataMax, advanced software that captures information such as vehicle trip histories, duty cycle information and scheduled maintenance intervals.

Offered with the proven Mack camelback rear suspension, the TerraPro Cabover can also be spec'd with the Mack M-Ride six-rod suspension, allowing up to 43 cm articulation for maneuverability in landfills and on jobsites. The TerraPro Series is available in both 6x4 and 4x2 axle configurations.

The TerraPro Low Entry comes standard with the Mack MP7 engine, in two ratings: the MP7-325M Maxidyne® model with 325 hp and 1200 lb-ft of torque; and the MP7-345C MaxiCruise® version with 345 hp and 1360 lb-ft of torque. The TerraPro Cabover is standard with the Mack MP7-325M and has optional Mack engines up to 405 hp. The Mack MP7 has superior low-end torque and power, and features single overhead cams, electronically controlled ultra-high-pressure fuel injection, one-piece steel pistons, and robust bearings and cylinder heads.
