McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company, has announced that the Santiago Municipality of Santiago, Chile, has placed 32 McNeilus Metro-Pak Rear Loader refuse vehicles into service. Santiago Municipality is a first-time McNeilus customer.

“We are proud and honored to have placed these rugged McNeilus Metro-Pak vehicles into service in Santiago, Chile,” said Chris Zuniga, McNeilus senior director, international sales and service. “This significant delivery represents a total team effort – including those of Geoprospec, our excellent local dealer and after-the-sale parts and service provider. This purchase is an excellent measure of the McNeilus brand, and our standing as a leader in furnishing quality refuse hauling vehicles to customers across Latin America.”

The McNeilus Metro-Pak Rear Loader is available in 10.7-, 13.0-, 15.3-, and 19.1-cubic meter (14-, 17-, 20-, and 25-cubic yard) body configurations and a 1.9-cubic meter (2.5-cubic yard) tailgate capacity. Built with AR steel throughout the body floor, sidewalls, and roof for added strength and durability, the Metro-Pak is also easy to maintain, with features like quick-change polyethylene slide shoes. The Metro-Pak vehicles for Santiago are assembled at McNeilus facilities in Mexico and built on Freightliner chassis.

McNeilus dealer, Geoprospec, offers a full line of McNeilus refuse vehicles, McNeilus ready-mixed concrete mixers, and CON-E-CO batch plants. Geoprospec stocks a wide range of replacement parts and accessories, and features a fleet of mobile support vehicles. Geoprospec also provides comprehensive body mounting and replacement services, including a new on-site paint booth, according to the company.

Santiago, Chile, is a rapidly expanding metropolis of around 7 million people.
