McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company, has announced plans to market its McNeilus Metro-Pak and M2-S refuse compactor vehicles in Saudi Arabia and the surrounding region. McNeilus said it will work with Refuse Equipment MFG. Holding Co. (REM) to assemble, market, and provide services for the completed vehicles through its extensive network of local service facilities, in combination with support from Oshkosh regional offices and personnel.
The McNeilus Metro-Pak and M2-S compactors will be manufactured in North America and shipped to Saudi Arabia. McNeilus personnel will provide on-site support and REM will assemble and mount the compactors locally onto a wide range of popular chassis. Both products will be marketed to municipal and commercial customers, and supported through Oshkosh regional offices and locally based sales and service personnel in Riyadh and Dubai, as well as through REM’s extensive network of service facilities located throughout Saudi Arabia, according to the company.
The McNeilus Metro-Pak compactor, which is available in body capacities ranging from 11 cubic meters to 19 cubic meters, features a large hopper, extensive use of high resistance steel, and single piece body panels for improved strength and durability. Its hydraulics and control systems are engineered for top-notch performance, enhanced reliability and ease of maintenance, according to the company.
The McNeilus M2-S compactor is available in larger body capacities ranging from 13 to 21 cubic meters. The compactor can be mounted on a single rear axle chassis for enhanced maneuverability, while its compaction force allows for maximum productivity. The M2-S compactor is available with optional Excalibre nitrided cylinders, according to the company.
