OSHKOSH CNG S-SERIES Oshkosh Cummins EngineAfter six years of testing and refining compressed natural gas-powered rear discharge mixers under the McNeilus Ngen (Next Generation Initiatives) banner, the Oshkosh Commercial Group has sold its first CNG-powered S-Series front discharge model. Action Ready Mix of Bohemia, N.Y., took delivery following the premier unit's World of Concrete 2013 unveiling.
"We've been manufacturing CNG-powered commercial vehicles since 2006, and understand how to help ready-mixed producers take advantage of new technology," says McNeilus Vice President of Sales Frank Busicchia. "Cleaner burning and quieter running engines, lower fuel costs, and an abundant domestic supply add up to bottom-line results that make CNG a smart choice for both front discharge and rear discharge fleets."
Oshkosh CNG S SeriesThe Oshkosh S-Series CNG vehicle is powered by a Cummins Westport ISL G 8.9-liter engine with 320 hp. The vehicle features an 11-yd. McNeilus drum with a 45-in. opening. The rugged Oshkosh transfer case and proprietary axles were developed for military vehicles, and the S-Series' Load Span Tag Axle features a hydraulic system with a higher weight rating than other tag axles. The ergonomic cab is optimized for high visibility and easy troubleshooting, and offers an automotive style HVAC system. —;
