Mack 3P Posted May 24, 2010 Share Posted May 24, 2010 Mack on TV again."If you want to get a real inside look at a Mack TerraPro, tune in to the History Channel’s new program, Sliced, on Thursday, May 27, 2010, at 10 p.m. Eastern. Each week, the show’s hosts use a variety of tools to slice objects apart, layer by layer, and explore how they work. On the May 27 episode, they take on an EPA 2010 emissions-equipped TerraPro that Republic Services has been testing for the past 12 months. Republic is among the top waste collection companies in the U.S. with operations in 40 states, and one of Mack’s largest customers.The show focuses on Mack’s clean diesel technology, the Mack ClearTech SCR system, and the fact that today’s trucks “are not belching black smoke like 20 years ago,” said Curtis Dorwart, Mack marketing product manager. He was on the Boston-area set during the filming to represent the Mack brand and advise the show’s staff on what and where to slice. Joining him were representatives from Republic and Heil Environmental, which manufactured the truck body.“The timing of the show’s filming worked perfectly for all of us, because this truck was ready to come out of field service and would have been recycled for secondary use anyway,” Curtis said. “We expected the cutting to be more surgical in nature, but what happened was more of a ‘Monster Garage’ approach. I think it will be entertaining and informative.” On previous episodes of the show, the hosts have sliced objects ranging from an Etch-A-Sketch to an armored van. If you miss the May 27 show, you can catch a repeat on Monday, May 31." Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
