Mack Offers Air Disc Brakes on Vocational Trucks

Mack Trucks Inc. said it is offering optional EX+ air disc brakes from Meritor Inc. on its vocational trucks.

Air disc brakes provide better stopping performance and require less maintenance than traditional “S-cam” brakes, Mack said in a Jan. 21 statement.

“Mack’s air disc brakes are built to our standards and tuned specifically for the needs of vocational customers to help boost uptime and lower overall lifecycle costs,” Stu Russoli, vocational marketing product manager, said in the statement. “Vehicle operators and workers on the job site can also enjoy the added safety benefits of the air disc brakes’ exceptional stopping performance.”

As of Jan. 21, Mack is offering the air disc brakes on the Granite, TerraPro and Titan models. They had been available since 2008 on the Pinnacle on-highway model.
