The new Mack TerraPro cabover model is an evolution of the company’s MR. Aimed at refuse and construction
applications, including concrete pumping, it features a new driver environment.
Driver comfort is enhanced by: a steering column positioned for ample belly room; ergonomic seats; integrated armrest; easy-to-read gauges and easy-to-reach switches; accelerator and brake pedals suspended above
the cab floor and mounted in-line to reduce driver effort; efficient HVAC system; easy-to-reach parking brake;
cab lighting controls reachable from the ground; and plenty of storage. Not to mention, of course, a cup holder.
Mack says the TerraPro also offers a smooth, quiet ride thanks to the design of its engine mounts, cab bushings and rubber isolators, and electronically controlled fan.
The vehicle’s low-profile electronic dash enhances outward vision and incorporates comprehensive driver information displays. The instrument cluster features 25 indicator lights and an automatic transmission temperature gauge. Electronic gauges improve accuracy and reliability while eliminating oil lines and most air lines from the gauge cluster. An engine hour meter features a wake-up display when the ignition is off. A battery backup protects vital information stored in the engine control systems.
The truck also features the next generation of Mack’s Vehicle Management and Control System – V-MAC IV,
which offers more than 100 proven programmable features. It also adds new items, including road-speed tamper detection and integrated starter protection.
Both customers and bodybuilders will appreciate the in-cab Control Link and back-of-cab Body Link II interface
systems. They provide quick connections to the bodybuilder’s control unit, as well as pass-through harnesses and connectors from the controller to the body.
Offered with the proven Mack camelback suspension, the TerraPro Cabover can also be spec’d with the Mack
M-Ride six-rod suspension, allowing up to 17-in. articulation for maneuverability in landfills and on jobsites.
Standard engine is the EPA ’07-certified 11-liter Mack MP7, with ratings from 325 to 405 hp and torque from
1200 to 1560 lb ft. Also available is the 13-liter MP8 (415 to 485 hp).
