A Look Back at 25 Years of McNeilus Refuse Products

Earlier this month, McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing Inc. celebrated 25 years of service to the refuse industry.

McNeilus, an Oshkosh Corp., shared with Waste360 some of its product highlights from throughout those years of service.

Since 1991 it has added an array of front loading and automated side loading products to its portfolio. What once was the PacStar rear loader has evolved into the McNeilus Standard Rear Loader. Several other models have also been added to the rear loader product lineup over the years. Overall, the company said it has sold nearly 24,000 rear loaders since production of refuse vehicles began.

Other more recent innovations include the launch of the new Meridian Front Loader, the McNeilus Rear Loader Organics package and McNeilus CODE, an on-demand controls system with diagnostic capability.

We are proud to have been able to serve the refuse industry for 25 years, and we continue to build on our track record of meeting and exceeding our customers’ expectations,” said Brad Nelson, president of McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing and the Oshkosh Commercial Segment. “Over the years, we have shown there are more and more reasons people continue to choose McNeilus.

McNeilus’ 25 years of refuse products will themes for the company during the 2016 Waste Expo Convention & Expo later this year at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
