Peterbilt vocational Model 520 expands refuse lineup


Peterbilt Motors Company expands its refuse truck lineup with the Model 520. The truck features a dual-seated/dual-drive configuration that allows customers to operate the vehicle from both sides of the cab, 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.

Model 520 Interior“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.”

The Model 520’s grille accommodates pantograph wipers that cover 27 percent more of the windshield than previous designs for increased safety during inclement weather. Two headlight technologies are available for the Model 520: optional LED lamps and standard single halogen bulb lamps.

Power options include the Paccar MX-11 engine and 9- and 11-liter natural gas engines.
