Thirty Oshkosh S-Series Front Discharge Units Sold in Pennsylvania,
Trucks Have Type IV Hexagon Lincoln CNG Tanks in McNeilus Pods
McNeilus has reported the sale of 30 Oshkosh S-Series front discharge ready-mix concrete trucks powered by compressed natural gas to the Silvi Group of Fairless Hills, Penn.
“This is our first purchase of CNG powered mixer trucks,” Silvi senior VP Tim Kurz says in the McNeilus release. “The price difference between CNG and diesel fuel is significant, and these trucks will provide a strong return on our investment,” he said.
“We evaluated two other manufacturers and we believe the S-Series is the best front discharge CNG mixer configuration available,” Kurz said.
The McNeilus Ngen System
The trucks feature integrated McNeilus’s Ngen (for next generation) factory CNG installation. McNeilus and parent Oshkosh have been engineering, testing, and installing CNG fuel systems since 2006.
The Ngen design employs CNC-formed high-pressure lines, compression fittings, “and fewer connection points to deliver more consistent and reliable fuel flow,” McNeilus says.
McNeilus employs lightweight Type IV tanks from Hexagon Lincoln and fuel storage pods with all-aluminum tank covers. The McNeilus fuel control module is designed for either fast-filling or time-filling to fit customer preferences.
The Ngen system also features easy access to the CNG tanks for easy inspection.
