"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."
The 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. — www.oshkoshcorporation.com; www.mcneiluscompanies.com
