New York City Sanitation Mack RD 8886SX - Flusher Truck Freshkills Landfill

Recommended Posts

A one off build for Freshkills Landfill in Staten Island to maintain haul roads and some of the active landfill cells. They were filled with water and dilute pine oil or chlorine to help disinfect and improve the smell. As mentioned this rd800 flusher was a one off build, there was two sister trucks to this one used for road building in Freshkills. The two sister trucks were identical spec but had dump beds on them instead of a flusher system.
