Peterbilt is showcasing the new Model 520 lineup, including the PACCAR MX-11 engine, at this year’s WasteExpo conference at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA, May 8-11. The Peterbilt exhibit, which displays five Model 520’s outfitted with a variety of refuse bodies, is located in Booth #1027.

The Model 520 is engineered to withstand the rigorous demands of the refuse industry and provide customers with cost effective, efficient operation. The versatile low cab forward model and powertrain options give customers the equipment they need to perform a wide array of services in the refuse industry.

“Peterbilt has been a leader in the refuse industry for nearly 50 years by providing innovations and enhanced performance,” says Robert Woodall, Peterbilt Assistant General Manager of Sales and Marketing. “Combined with the reliability and durability of the PACCAR MX-11 engine, the capabilities of the Peterbilt refuse lineup continue to exceed customer needs and expectations.”

As part of WasteExpo, two Peterbilt trucks are to be auctioned to benefit the Environment Research and Education Foundation (EREF).

EREF strives to fund and direct scientific research and educational initiatives for waste management practices to benefit industry participants and the communities they serve.

WasteExpo attendees are invited to visit the Peterbilt booth and register for a $2,000 per truck cash rebate applicable to Peterbilt customers who purchase and receive new Models 567 and 520 in 2017. Participants are limited to three truck rebates per customer per calendar year.
