Navistar has unveiled a number of new waste collection features now available for the International DuraStar and International WorkStar vocational trucks.

The trucks feature a cab air suspension system, which is standard on WorkStar and optional on DuraStar, and a double-sided galvanized steel cab. The cab comes with a five-year limited warranty.

The cab ergonomics and stair-step entry/exit increase driver productivity and reduce driver fatigue during the course of the day, the company says. Both the WorkStar and DuraStar can be spec'd to accommodate stand-up, right-hand drive (SRD) configurations. With the DuraStar's sloped hood, SRD conversions work especially well, providing operators with outstanding forward and side-to-side visibility.

The WorkStar offers a cooling system mounted above the frame rail, to protect the radiator in off-highway environments and allow front-end power take-off mounting without having to put a hole in the radiator.

International mounted the DuraStar's cooling package in mega-brackets at the front of the frame rails. Standard, wide-track front axles on the DuraStar and WorkStar allow for greater wheel cut and a shorter turning radius.

International offers a lineup of 2010 MaxxForce engines specified for the waste collection industry, from its mid-range diesel (MRD) MaxxForce DT, MaxxForce 9 and MaxxForce 10 to its heavy-duty diesel (HDD) big bore diesel options in the MaxxForce 11 and MaxxForce 13. International vocational trucks powered by 2010 MaxxForce engines use MaxxForce advanced exhaust gas recirculation emissions technology.
