Mack showcases application excellence at Equipment Fleet Management National Conference
Mack Trucks showcased two models and its latest evolution of the Mack integrated powertrain at the Equipment Fleet Management 2016 National Conference and Trade Show this June in Columbus, Ohio, demonstrating its commitment to meeting customer needs through application excellence.
Visitors to the Greater Columbus Convention Center experienced the 2017 Mack powertrain, which delivers improved performance, productivity and boosts fuel efficiency, thanks to several innovations, such as a common-rail fuel system for improved fuel injection and reduced in-cab noise, and a patented wave piston that enables more efficient combustion.

With a dependable 9-litre engine and Mack’s proven Cornerstone chassis, the Granite MHD delivers legendary Mack toughness for customers with lighter duty cycles and shorter runs.
