Peterbilt Motors is now offering its low-cab-forward Model 320 with a right-hand, stand-up configuration for side-loader collection vehicles.
The redesigned Model 320 was introduced last year with a new ProBilt interior that features numerous enhancements that improve operator comfort, productivity and safety, the company said.
“Industry-wide reception of the new Model 320 has been outstanding and we’re pleased to be expanding its versatility by offering it in a right-hand stand-up configuration,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt director of sales and marketing. “Customers engaged in curbside refuse collection who prefer this type of configuration will now enjoy the many advantages of the Model 320’s best in class operating environment.”
The Model 320 is also available in left-hand drive, right-hand drive and dual drive with right-hand stand-up configurations.
The right-hand stand-up drive option includes a lowered entry step, large upper and lower side-door windows for visibility, HVAC and radio controls in the header of both the right- and left-hand stations, multi-function turn stalk, easy-to-reach door handle, and pivot-style seat for easy stowage during stand-up operation.
“The Model 320’s ProBilt interior was designed to maximize driver performance and provide exceptional durability in the often harsh conditions these vehicles operate in,” said Peterbilt Chief Engineer Landon Sproull. “It was completely re-engineered to make operators as comfortable and productive as possible.”
