Mack Trucks is offering a factory-installed, carrier-mount option of the Telma Frictionless Braking System on its S462 axle. The new mounting configuration, which was announced at the 2005 Waste Expo last month, is now available on the LE and MR refuse chassis.
According to Steve Ginter, vocational products marketing manager for Mack, this is a key design option that can reduce the weight of waste trucks. “The weight savings can total 300 lb. versus the mid-chassis mounting option that we still offer.”
