Built with input from customers, the Mack LR refuse model is built specifically to meet the challenges of refuse customers who require maneuverability, and improved visibility.
The cab’s enhanced driver environment includes tilt and telescopic steering columns, power windows and power door locks, memory mirrors, in-dash air-conditioning, standard in-cab LED lighting and an instrument cluster with color LCD display. Steering column-mounted main gauge pods for the right-hand and left-hand driving positions enhance gauge visibility and improve ergonomics, while centrally-mounted radio and HVAC controls, accessible from both driving positions, contribute to a comfortable, driver-focused cab environment. The rear cab windows now wrap around the rear cab corners, improving driver visibility.
The LR model also offers center storage for lunch coolers, two-liter bottles, beverage cups, mobile phones and MP3 players. A rear-wall unit offers two additional levels of storage. The large cab doors enable easier driver ingress and egress.
The 11-liter Mack MP7 diesel engine is standard in the LR model, delivering 325 to 345 horsepower and 1,200 to 1,280 lb.-ft. of torque. The Cummins Westport ISL G natural gas engine is optional. The LR model is equipped with an Allison RDS five-speed or six-speed automatic transmission.
