Heavy-duty: Despite likely inbound recession, factors continue to dull sharp truck downturn
Crane Carrier Company (CCC) has released the new Low Narrow Tilt (LNT) heavy-duty work truck chassis.
The new chassis is 82 in. wide, 12 in. narrower than the company’s Low Entry Tilt 2, the company says. The LNT supports a three-man work crew and has an 18-in. step in height on both sides of the cab.
“The LNT was specifically engineered for Class 7 and 8 vocational work trucks required to navigate narrow spaces, like tight alleyways, side streets and winding corridors, as part of their daily duties,” says Mark Hampshire, senior vice president of sales and marketing at CCC. “And, it can maneuver these narrow routes carrying a three-man crew—all comfortably facing forward with seat belts.”
LNT features an all-steel, fabricated severe-service cab shell for increased durability, as well as cast steel, tubular crossmembers to provide consistent strength fore and aft and side to side, the company says.
The LNT’s initial gross vehicle weight rangers from 26K to 35K single-axle, with tandem-axle and single-axle city tractor models to follow, the company says. Powered by the Cummins B6.7 engine in both diesel and CNG, the chassis features left-hand, right-hand or dual-steering configurations, a flat floor, pass-through cab design and EMP electric fans, CCC says.
