Mack Trucks Offers Allison 3000 RDS Transmission as Option for Mack® MD Series
Mack Trucks recently announced that the Allison 3000 RDS transmission is now available for order for the Mack® MD Series models. Mack made the announcement during the 2022 Work Truck Show, held March 8-11, in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Expanding to include the Allison 3000 RDS as an option for the MD Series was a strategic decision allowing additional options for applications that demand more power but are best suited for medium-duty vehicles.
Mack previously only offered the Allison 2500 RDS for its MD Series models.
The Allison 3000 RDS transmission offers greater versatility for customers in 4x2 refuse, tank and dump applications. The MD Series equipped with an Allison 3000 RDS transmission is approved at a 14,968 kg Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) for refuse and recycling applications, allowing the Mack MD to haul more. The Allison 3000 also allows for a live power take-off (PTO) for MD Series tanker trucks delivering heating oil, water, fuel and propane, and dump trucks, enabling the vehicle to move while using the PTO at the same time.
The Allison 3000 RDS also offers a higher Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR), allowing customers to drive the Mack MD Series model and pull utility trailers with small excavators. The Mack MD Series equipped with an Allison 3000 RDS will have a GCWR of 20,411 kg. The Mack MD Series can be specified to be a Class 6 and a Class 7. With the MD Series, Mack now offers a complete lineup up vehicles from Class 6 to 8.
Available in 4x2 configurations, the MD Series features a sharp wheel cut for enhanced maneuverability in tough urban settings. The MD Series cab design has an industry-best bumper-to-back-of-cab (BBC) measurement of 262 cm.
