McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc. is expanding offerings of its McNeilus® Next Generation™ (NGEN) Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) systems. McNeilus NGEN systems are now available on a wider range of vehicle types – including construction, delivery, over-the-road, and other severe-duty fleets.
“McNeilus is an industry leader with more than 5,000 NGEN CNG vehicles on the road from coast to coast. We’re a pioneer in the development of CNG systems for the refuse and concrete mixer industries, and we’ve applied that expertise to engineer alternative fuel solutions for commercial vehicle fleets of all types,” said Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corporation senior vice president and president of the Commercial Business Segment.
The systems are available on new vehicles and retrofits through the company’s national network of regional installation centers. The company’s exclusive fuel management system reduces the number of fittings and increases reliability, while the fuel storage pods feature lightweight DOT Type 4 tanks. McNeilus systems meet all NFPA-52 standards and are installed by the company’s team of factory-trained technicians. NGEN CNG systems are backed by a two-year standard warranty, with an optional extended warranty. In addition, McNeilus carries a comprehensive inventory of replacement parts on hand at its regional installation centers.
“To give customers more effective choices, McNeilus engineers a variety of mounting options and fuel tank capacities. New configurations are constantly in development to respond to this quickly growing market,” said Nelson. “We back McNeilus NGEN CNG systems with an extensive inventory of replacement parts, and mobile service, to keep fleets on the road.”
