The ISL G can be had with either 300 or 320 hp and 1000 lbs. ft. in the LE model.
The MP7 comes in at 345 hp and 1280 ft. lbs. in the refuse package.
I would call that a significant difference.

They've got their work cut out for them. The current diesel fleet is so choked up with failure-prone emission crap they spend more time in the shop than out making money. Welcome to ONA (Obama's New America). :sick:

I would call a refuse truck a truck that handles refuse. That can be in any of the applications of the cycle of waste management. And that is

The city of NEW YORK will be 60% NG in 2013 in terms of their fleet of class 8 refuse trucks. And if the auto companies were smart, they would have an NG pickup truck ready to go as well.


You might say I am a reliable source in this matter.
the way the industry classifies them.

Well, I was talking about class 8 trucks, MACK is #1, with more then 60% of the market and there are very few sold each year. in 2013 NYC will have 60% of their MACK refuse trucks running on NG. Washington DC already has their busses on NG as well.

1000 ft lbs or 1280 ft lbs is meaningless when you haul only 20,000 pounds of refuse going no more then 45mph....

Why would you use a class 8 truck to haul 20K net??? With the chassis, packer body and load they are most likely maxing out at 55-60k# by the time they are heading to the transfer station or landfill.

And if you believe 28% more torque will not improve you acceleration in a stop and go application you're fooling yourself.

1000ft pounds of torque right off of idle is more then enough. If it wasn't enough, then why is the City of New York converting to 60% NG cummins powered LE trash trucks in 2013 ? Riddle me that please. thanks.
