Mack Proprietary 16000 Lb Front Axle Now Available for Order

MONTRÉAL (April 20, 2017) – Mack Trucks’ proprietary 16,000 lb. front axle is now available for order on the Mack® Pinnacle™ Axle Back and Axle Forward models. Mack made the announcement during ExpoCam in Montréal, Quebec, Canada.

Built to bear the heavier loads commonly found in Canada, the 16,000 lb. Mack FXL front axle enables carriers to transport more cargo, improving productivity and efficiency. The 16,000 lb. front axle is also available in the U.S.

“Our 16,000 lb. front axle improves performance with the same legendary durability and reliability that Mack pioneered,” said Roy Horton, director of product strategy for Mack Trucks. “It’s designed significantly heavier so that our customers can improve their efficiency by transporting more payload at one time.”

Mack axles, engineered to work seamlessly with Mack MP® engines and Mack transmissions as part of Mack’s integrated powertrain, offer superior strength and improved fuel efficiency. Developed to provide a stable and smooth ride under demanding loads, the 16,000 lb. Mack FXL axle also simplifies maintenance, improving uptime for customers.

Mack Pinnacle models are built to handle the toughest challenges, delivering great power, fuel efficiency and maneuverability. The addition of the 16,000 lb. front axle for heavy loads further maximizes a customer’s bottom line.

All Mack Pinnacle models equipped with Mack MP engines come standard with Mack GuardDog® Connect, a telematics-based solution providing proactive vehicle monitoring and maintenance management. Combined with Mack ASIST and Mack’s live OneCall™ uptime agents, GuardDog Connect delivers the right mix of people and technology to provide decision-critical information maximizing customer uptime.

Mack Trucks also recently launched Mack Over The Air (OTA), enabling customers to update software without disrupting their schedules, increasing operational efficiency and uptime.
