McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, a U.S. manufacturer of refuse truck bodies, has boosted the durability and performance, as well as serviceability and liquid containment capability, of the Meridian™ Front Loader. The Meridian is available powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) through McNeilus CNG Systems and Service.

Enhancements include:

  • Updated canopy and more robust windguard design
  • Additional top door shielding (CNG trucks)
  • Redesigned tailgate safety props
  • Relocated tailgate proximity switch
  • Reconfigured ejector hose routing
  • Headframe and paper screen seal

“These enhancements to the Meridian Front Loader really take into consideration the operator and service personnel,” said Grant Wildgrube, McNeilus Product Manager-Front Loaders & CNG. “We’ve made improvements to this truck specifically based on their feedback and how they use it every day, on every route.”

The Meridian design includes 10,000-pound-rated arms, side-of-body electric over hydraulic valves for better control and smoother operation and the largest available hopper access door. And, McNeilus’ Latitude Integration option allows the Meridian to connect with any brand of front loader residential container, including Perkins automated container, Curotto-Can™ Automated Carry Can, and McNeilus’ own Street Smart Carry Can.
