Peterbilt Motors Company announced it 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 DAF MX-11 engine.

Peterbilt has led the refuse industry for nearly 50 years through vehicle innovations that bring our customers new levels of performance, reliability and versatility,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt general manager and PACCAR vice president. “The Model 520 continues this strong tradition with new productivity and safety features. The dual-seated /dual-drive configuration allows customers to operate the vehicle from both sides of the cab for greater convenience and comfort.”

The dual-station cab has two nearly identical work environments so drivers can 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.”

The Model 520’s grille styling accommodates pantograph wipers that cover 27% 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.

The Model 520 is available with the PACCAR MX-11 engine which went into production earlier this year. “The PACCAR MX-11 engine provides outstanding value in a lightweight and fuel efficient design,” Newhouse said. It 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.

“The Model 520 is the foundation of Peterbilt refuse collection vehicles,” said Siver. “Peterbilt’s Model 520 will give our refuse customers unprecedented levels of uptime, productivity, driver satisfaction and low cost of operation.”
