Peterbilt Motors Company has expanded its refuse truck lineup with the new Model 520 featuring new seating configurations for route collection versatility.
The dual-station cab has two nearly identical work environments so drivers can seamlessly and safely operate from the left- or right-hand side, including dual controls for the parking brakes, HVAC system and stereo. The console sides are angled to give operators easy visibility and access to the same controls and displays from the right and left. The cab also features an enhanced HVAC system for improved airflow and climate control.
The Model 520’s distinguished grille styling accommodates pantograph wipers that cover 27 percent more of the windshield than previous designs for increased safety during inclement weather. Two headlight technologies are available for the Model 520, optional LED lamps and standard single halogen bulb lamps. Both provide long service and outstanding brightness and coverage.
The Model 520 is available with more power options and higher horsepower and torque than any competitive refuse collection vehicle. It is available with the PACCAR MX-11 engine which went into production earlier this year. The Model 520 can also be powered by natural gas with both 9- and 11-liter engine options available.
