When Flint, Michigan needed refuse hauling trucks, it looked to McNeilus Companies, Inc. In July 2006 the city (the fourth largest in the state) ordered 20 refuse hauling trucks, which were delivered and placed into service in July 2006.
“We’re proud to have been selected by Flint, Michigan,” said Mike Wuest, president of McNeilus Companies. “We’re excited to add Flint to the growing list of municipal customers who come to rely on McNeilus quality, performance, and support.”
The order included twenty McNeilus tag axle rear loader bodies mounted on Peterbilt 357 chassis supplied by Reefer Peterbilt of Auburn Hills, Michigan. Each truck features a 25 cubic yard body capacity, 2.8 cubic yard hopper, and an exclusive Smart-Pak hydraulics system. The tag axle design allows for maximum payloads while complying with weight restrictions and state roadway laws.
McNeilus Companies, Inc. is a subsidiary of Oshkosh Truck Corporation, a leading manufacturer of refuse bodies, concrete mixers and concrete batch plants.
