McNeilus expands CNG offering to additional vehicle types

McNeilus has expanded its CNG offering to now include a wider range of vehicles such as construction, over-the-road and other severe-duty vehicles.

McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company, announced an expansion of offerings of its industry-leading McNeilus Next Generation (NGEN) Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) systems. To satisfy growing customer demands, McNeilus NGEN CNG systems are now available on a wider range of vehicle types – including construction, delivery, over-the-road, and other severe-duty fleets.

“McNeilus is an industry leader with more than 5,000 NGEN CNG vehicles on the road from coast to coast. We’re a pioneer in the development of CNG systems for the refuse and concrete mixer industries, and we’ve applied that expertise to engineer alternative fuel solutions for commercial vehicle fleets of all types,” says Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corporation Senior Vice President and President of the Commercial Business Segment. “We offer only fully tested and certified configurations that are backed by a national service network and an expert team that can assist customers as they navigate the transition to CNG.”

McNeilus NGEN CNG systems are available on new vehicles and retrofits through the company’s national network of regional installation centers. NGEN CNG-powered trucks are built with both the operator and service team in mind. The company’s exclusive fuel management system reduces the number of fittings and increases reliability, while the fuel storage pods feature lightweight DOT Type 4 tanks. McNeilus systems meet all NFPA-52 standards and are installed by the company’s team of factory-trained technicians. NGEN CNG systems are backed by a two-year standard warranty, with an optional extended warranty. In addition, McNeilus carries a comprehensive inventory of replacement parts on hand at its regional installation centers.

“To give customers more effective choices, McNeilus engineers a variety of mounting options and fuel tank capacities. New configurations are constantly in development to respond to this quickly growing market,” says Nelson. “We back McNeilus NGEN CNG systems with an extensive inventory of replacement parts, and mobile service, to keep fleets on the road.”
