Mack has introduced the Granite Medium Heavy Duty rear loader offers a reduced weight option for refuse companies and municipalities desiring a truck built for lighter-duty cycles, such as short inner-city routes or for service in smaller towns.
The clean back-of-cab design of the Granite MHD accommodates a range of body options and makes the vehicle particularly well-suited to rear loader applications. Available in 4x2 or 6x4 configurations, the truck is equipped with a Cummins ISL9 345-horsepower engine with a maximum torque rating of 1,150 pounds-feet. In fact, the MHD rear loader is available as a Class 7 solution when configured as a 4x2.
The MHD rear loader’s cab also offers improved driver comfort because it is mounted on airbags and shocks. With a short bumper-to-tire distance, the MHD rear loader has a superior front-end swing clearance and an excellent wheel cut that allows it to maneuver in and out of tight collection sites.
