Freightliner Trucks Showcases New Severe Duty Solutions at CONEXPO-CON/AGG

Freightliner Trucks  highlighted some of its toughest vocational solutions at the 2014 CONEXPO-CON/AGG show. The Freightliner Trucks featured the complete line of Freightliner severe duty (SD) models, including the 122SD with a new mid-chassis exhaust and 45-ton boom crane from National Crane Corp.

The 122SD featured in the Freightliner booth is equipped with a Detroit™ DD16® engine, set-back twin-steer front axle configuration, 13” rail, and a 48” sleeper cab. The 122SD DD16 mid-chassis exhaust package is also available with a 34” sleeper cab. The mid-chassis mounted horizontal aftertreatment system features dual cab mounted vertical tailpipes, and provides improved packaging for vocational applications. Production on the 122SD DD16 mid-chassis exhaust configuration begins summer 2014.

“When adding options such as the mid-chassis exhaust, we work closely with truck equipment manufacturers to develop flexible solutions that simplify the upfitting process to get the trucks to work as soon as possible,” said Mary Aufdemberg, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “Our new severe duty options further contribute to the durability and performance our vocational customers require on the road and off.”

In addition to the 122SD twin steer, Freightliner SD trucks on view include:

• A versatile 108SD, featuring a Valew Truck Bodies fuel and lube body;

• A tough and efficient 114SD featuring a Cargotec knuckleboom roofing crane; and

• A 122SD day cab, with twin steer front axles, tridem drive axles, and featuring an Elliott Equipment E160 crane from Custom Truck & Equipment.
