McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company, announced they received one of their largest refuse vehicle orders in Canada with more than 40 CNG-powered Split Body Rear Loader trucks sold to Emterra Group. The fleet will be delivered beginning late next year, and will be placed into service in the Greater Toronto Area. London Machinery of London, Ontario, the exclusive distributor of McNeilus refuse vehicles in Canada, will provide local service and support.
“This manufacturer was selected because, right from the outset, their team demonstrated that they were very prepared and understood our needs and requirements,” said Paulina Leung, Emterra Group Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Business Development. “We also visited their facilities and could see, firsthand, some of the quality control and quality assurance processes McNeilus has in place.”
The McNeilus® Split Body Rear Loader is engineered with the same level of reliability and quality as the company’s high-performance Standard Rear Loader, but it is designed for dual-stream refuse collection. It is available in two body sizes (25- and 32-cubic yards) and two configurations (a 60/40 or a 75/25 split) to meet customer needs. The dual tailgates operate independently of each other, and controls on both sides of the tailgate allow for packing from either side of the truck.
Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corporation senior vice president and president of the Commercial business segment, also commented: “We’re excited to be selected for this significant purchase. It’s a validation of our products and our people. The McNeilus Split Body Rear Loader is an excellent choice for dual-stream routes, and we look forward to having these vehicles in service with this progressive and innovative recycling and waste diversion solutions company.”
