Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) today announced the launch of the MT-45 Straight Rail (SR) diesel chassis, a new version of its MT-45 diesel chasis.
The significant difference between the MT-45 and MT-45 SR is in the new chassis' eight-inch-tall steel straight-rail frame, designed to enhance the chassis' overall strength and reliability.
The MT-45 SR is a medium-duty chassis offering a GVW rating between 14,140 and 19,000 lbs. It can accept bodies of up to 22 ft. in load length and volumes of up to 950 cu. ft. Its payload capacity is 10,000 lbs.
The Mercedes-Benz MBE900 170-hp diesel engine is standard on the MT-45 SR chassis.
