Mack MD Series to be supported by body builder resources
Mack Trucks' all-new Mack MD Series of medium-duty trucks will be supported by Mack's extensive body builder resources, ensuring the same level of support provided for its Class 8 vehicles.
The Mack Body Builder Support Team and the Mack Body Builder Portal offer customers, body builders and dealers the tools needed for a quick upfit process of truck bodies and equipment.
"Mack is dedicated to meeting the specific needs of our customers, which often includes adjustments to ensure proper mounting and function of bodies," said Jonathan Randall, senior vice president of North American sales. "It's imperative that we have a good team and system in place to ensure efficiency. Our Body Builder Support Team and online portal offer a wealth of knowledge and information to help with quality truck body installation and operation."
The Mack MD6, a Class 6 model, has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 25,995 pounds, and the MD7, a Class 7 model, has a GVWR of 33,000 pounds. Both models are exempt from the 12 percent Federal Excise Tax (FET). These new products will meet the needs of medium-duty trucking applications requiring dry van/refrigerated, stake/flatbed, dump and tank truck vocations. The MD6 model does not require a Commercial Driver's License (CDL) to operate for non-hazardous payloads. The Mack Body Builder Portal includes useful information, such as body builder manuals, wiring diagrams for electrical interfaces, Technical and Maintenance Council (TMC) recommended practices and information about diagnostic tools.
