Mack Trucks has announced that its 13L MP8 engine is now available in a TerraPro concrete pumper model.
The MP8 features three ratings and special performance calibrations unique to the concrete pumping industry, Mack said. Ratings range from 425 to 505 hp. with 1,760 lbs.-ft. of torque.
“The higher horsepower and torque available with the MP8 provide effective and efficient operation of the concrete pump under the demanding and variable engine loading conditions that are routinely encountered during operation,” said Curtis Dorwart, Mack vocational product marketing manager. “Concrete pumpers demand incredible power and performance, both of which are offered by the Mack MP8 and Mack TerraPro combination.”
The TerraPro cabover is designed to navigate tight turns, making it ideal for jobsites where space is at a premium.
Equipped with the Mack Maxitorque ES manual transmission, Mack C150/151 and C202/203 axles and the MP8 engine with ClearTech SCR System, the TerraPro concrete pumper has a completely integrated Mack Pedigree Powertrain, offering seamless communication among components for improved performance, the company pointed out.
