Mack Trucks unveiled a heavy duty version of its game –changing Mack mDrive automated manual transmission. The mDrive HD will be available as standard equipment on orders as of March in the rugged Mack Granite model, offering improved performance for demanding on and off road applications
Mack made the announcement during the World of Concrete 2015 expo where hundreds of Heavy Duty Truck Parts dealers and Truck fleets managers assist. Heavy Auto Parts a distributor of OEM & Aftermarket parts for Heavy Equipment & heavy duty trucks such as Caterpillar, Komatsu, Deere, Hitachi, Volvo, Mack, Freightliner, Kenworth, Autocar and international trucks was present during the announcement.
“ Our construction customer told us they wanted a heavy duty version of the mDrive designed specifically to handle rough roads in tough conditions “, said Stephen Roy, President of Mack Trucks North America.
The MDrive HD is designed and engineered to work exclusively with Mack MP7 & Mack MP8 engines. The 12 speed mDrive HD has an automated clutch, so no clutch pedal is required,. Operation of the transmission is controlled through a dash-mounted shift pad by selecting drive, neutral or reverse. For more demanding job site maneuvers, the premium shift pad can be operated manually to hold a gear, downshift or upshift.
Available in overdrive and direct drive, the MDrive HD continuously monitors changes in grade (both up and down), vehicle speed, throttle position, acceleration, torque demand and gross vehicle weight. It automatically chooses the best gear for the road condition, allowing drivers to focus on the terrain rather than shifting gears, increasing safety on worksites.
