Peterbilt Motors Company has expanded its refuse truck lineup with the new Model 520 featuring new seating configurations for route-collection versatility, enhanced styling and availability of the PACCAR MX-11 engine.

The dual-station cab has two nearly identical work environments so drivers can seamlessly and safely operate from the left- or right-hand side, including dual controls for the parking brakes, HVAC system and stereo. The console sides are angled to give operators easy visibility and access to the same controls and displays from the right and left.

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 Chief Engineer. “The Model 520 features Peterbilt’s latest ProBilt design, providing an operating environment that optimizes comfort, ergonomics and productivity.”

Two headlight technologies are available for the Model 520, optional LED lamps and standard single halogen bulb lamps. Both provide long service and outstanding brightness and coverage.

The Model 520 is available with more power options and higher horsepower and torque than any competitive refuse collection vehicle. It is available with the PACCAR MX-11 engine which went into production earlier this year.

The PACCAR MX-11 engine is available with up to 430 horsepower and 1,550 lb.-ft. of torque. The Model 520 can also be powered by natural gas with both 9- and 11-liter engine options available.
