International MV Series supports snowplow applications

Navistar announced the recently updated International MV Series has been purpose built to support snowplow applications. The redesigned truck now benefits customers with a chassis configuration specifically focused on plows, improved packaging for easy integration and a multitude of safety features and uptime enhancements.

The 14,700-lb. front axle and suspension were designed with the snowplow application in mind. A hood that can be opened part way allows for easy access for daily fluid checks. The integral front frame extension provides reinforced strength while reducing weight when compared to bolt on solutions. The design also allows for multiple configurations including hose reel and winch applications. Corrosion protection is enhanced with standard Intercoat Chem Guard on floor panels and a newly available option of Line-X interior floor coating.

In the cab, driver safety and comfort are paramount with a new heated windshield feature to reduce snow and ice buildup. Diamond Logic steering wheel controls allow for plow controls at the driver’s fingertips. The relocated stalk shifter provides room for a third occupant to sit comfortably.
