AAA Zoellner Supplies carries on household legacy in newest installment of Mack’s RoadLife 2.0admin
AAA Zoellner Supplies determined with their final truck order to introduce one thing new to their fleet from the Mack product portfolio, in order that they spec’d Mack mDRIVE HD automated handbook transmissions in two of their Mack Granite mannequin mixer vehicles with Mack MP 7 11-litre engines. “Thus far, so good,” mentioned Patrick Zoellner, vice chairman of AAA Zoellner Supplies. “The blokes truly rave about them.”
“The best way they shift – they take off good,” mentioned Tony Tettaton, longtime head technician for AAA Zoellner Supplies. “The best way they make the downshift and let the truck decelerate with out utilizing the [engine] brake so laborious, I feel it is a good transmission.”
Primarily based on their experiences with the Mack mDRIVE HD transmission, AAA Zoellner Supplies not too long ago adopted up with an order for 4 mannequin 12 months 2022 Mack Granite mixers, all spec’d with the Mack mDRIVE HD 14-speed with creeper gears. The addition of two ultra-low, creep-speed discount gears to the overdrive transmission offers versatile gearing for low-speed purposes and improves efficiency in off-road purposes.
“[AAA Zoellner Materials’ business is] very, very vocational-focused, so the vehicles are essential to getting the job completed,” mentioned Dan Inexperienced, new truck gross sales supervisor at Vanguard Truck Facilities in St. Louis. “They have to have the ability to get into jobsites, on uneven terrain, and never get caught. The efficiency of the vehicles is essential.”
