Peterbilt » 520

Peterbilt Motors Co. has expanded its refuse truck lineup with the new Model 520. This new model features a new dual-station cab as well as availability with the PACCAR MX-11 engine.

The dual-station cab has two nearly identical work environments so drivers can operate from either the left- or right-hand side, the company said. This includes dual controls for the parking brakes, HVAC system and stereo. The cab also features an enhanced HVAC system for improved airflow and climate control.

“Peterbilt continues to improve the popular ProBilt interior that is ideally suited for vocational applications,” said Scott Newhouse, Peterbilt’s chief engineer. “The Model 520 features Peterbilt’s latest ProBilt design, providing an operating environment that optimizes comfort, ergonomics and productivity.”

Engine options for the Model 520 include the recently launched PACCAR MX-11, with up to 430 HP and 1,550 lb.-ft. of torque, as well as natural gas options, with both 9- and 11-liter engine options available.

The Model 520’s pantograph wipers cover 27% more of the windshield than previous designs for increased safety during inclement weather, the company said. Also, two headlight technologies are available for the Model 520, optional LED lamps and standard single halogen bulb lamps.

“The Model 520 is the foundation of Peterbilt refuse collection vehicles,” said Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President Darrin Siver. “Peterbilt’s Model 520 will give our refuse customers unprecedented levels of uptime, productivity, driver satisfaction and low cost of operation. The dual-seated / dual-drive configuration allows customers to operate the vehicle from both sides of the cab for greater convenience and comfort.”
