Mack Trucks announced it will make a rolling start and auto neutral standard on all Mack mDRIVE and mDRIVE HD transmissions designed to improve the jobsite performance and safety.
Mack mDRIVE rolling start allows drivers to shift the transmission into drive without pressing the truck’s service brakes. This function is handy for paving applications because it eliminates the possibility of creating a bump in the paving surface.
Mack mDRIVE auto neutral automatically shifting mDRIVE into neutral when the parking brake is set improves jobsite safety by reducing the possibility of the truck moving due to throttle application.
“Mack’s mDRIVE transmissions serve a wide range of customers, including those with demanding paving and concrete applications,” said Tim Wrinkle, Mack construction product manager. “Now updated with rolling start and auto neutral, mDRIVE transmissions are even better suited to those tasks.
