Mack adds EV-certified dealers, offers electric side loader – Truck News

Nortrux in Edmonton, Transwestern Truck Centres in Calgary, and Vision Truck Group locations in Cambridge and London, Ont., are among the latest Mack Trucks dealers to become EV-certified.

Only certified dealers are permitted to sell and support electric trucks. Mack’s dealer network in North America now boasts 53 EV-certified locations.

They are able to sell the Mack LR Electric refuse truck and MD Electric medium-duty truck.

“A robust certified dealership network is crucial for our shift toward a sustainable future,” said Jonathan Randall, president of Mack Trucks North America. “We applaud Mack dealers for taking this next step to make the transition to electric easy and convenient for our customers.” 

The latest Canadian dealers to become certified now mean Mack dealers in four provinces – Alberta, B.C., Ontario and Quebec – are certified.

Also at ACT Expo, Mack announced its LR Electric refuse truck can be ordered with a fully electric Heil RevAmp side loader.

The compacter and auger comes with an independent battery pack, giving the truck itself greater range. It operates quietly without hydraulics for reduced maintenance.

“Mack is excited that the Heil RevAMP can now be installed on our Mack LR Electric refuse truck,” said Randall. “The pairing of the Mack LR Electric with the fully electric ASL helps fleets to achieve sustainability goals, while also reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The self-contained unit will draw power from its own source, ensuring maximum range to meet the demands of the application.”

The Heil RevAmp uses a 46 kWh battery with up to 400A available at 100 volts. It can lift more than 1,200 containers on a charge.
