September 28, 2010

M2-112Freightliner says its Class 8 Business Class M2-112 is not just a modification of the old Business Class design; it is a completely new design using state-of-the-art technology and components. It is said to have the roomiest, newest cab in the industry and a more expansive windshield. It is available in extended and crewcab, and uses a multiplex wiring system. The longer hood will accommodate midrange and heavy-duty diesels, and its chassis specs take its GVWR up to 66,000 pounds. Components include the Mercedes-Benz MBE4000 and Cat ACERT C9, C11 and C13, with output as high as 470 horsepower; and a wide variety of transmissions, axles and suspensions. It's intended for use as a dumper, mixer, roll-off and other construction and trash-hauling work, and can also be outfitted as a tractor.
