Navistar Introduces New Features for Waste Collection Trucks

May 06, 2010

ATLANTA - Navistar, Inc. recently introduced a number of new waste collection features now available for the International DuraStar and International WorkStar vocational trucks at the Waste Expo 2010.

The International DuraStar has added a number of features specifically designed for the rigors of the waste collection industry.

Both the WorkStar and DuraStar can be spec'd to accommodate stand-up, right-hand drive (SRD) configurations, which help reduce cycle time, improve operator ergonomics and deliver enhanced visibility - a key customer requirement in the waste collection vocation. With the DuraStar's sloped hood, SRD conversions work especially well, providing operators with outstanding forward and side-to-side visibility, according to Navistar.

The WorkStar offers a cooling system mounted above the frame rail, which protects the radiator in off-highway environments, such as landfills, and also allows for FEPTO (front-end power take-off) mounting.

International mounted the DuraStar's cooling package in mega-brackets at the front of the frame rails. This proven design, adopted from the severe service International PayStar 5900 SBA, allows for enhanced visibility in applications that do not require a FEPTO.

Standard, wide-track front axles on the DuraStar and WorkStar allow for greater wheel cut and a shorter turning radius, reducing the likelihood of an operator having to shift into reverse during tight maneuvers, increasing productivity and safety.

All International brand vocational trucks powered by 2010 MaxxForce engines use MaxxForce Advanced EGR emissions technology.
