The industry-leading Mack? mDRIVE? automated manual transmission (AMT) is now offered as standard on all Pinnacle models, and the Mack? mDRIVE HD? is offered as standard on all Granite and Titan models. On top of an average 1 to 3 percent improvement in fuel efficiency for highway applications, the mDRIVE eliminates the manual shifter and clutch pedal, letting you concentrate on hauling your load instead of what gear you’re in. Making the truck easier to drive can potentially lead to lower driver turnover and cut down on recruiting and training costs.Thu, 09 Jun 2016 13:29:07 Zhttp://www.oftad.com:443/Mack Life/Blog/2016/June/Clutches//-/media/images/blog-images/mack-clutches-header-image.jpg{B77CD6A1-E2F2-4C2A-B01E-574BBC9E70A8}http://www.oftad.com/mack-life/blog/2016/june/brakes/ Get Your Brakes Roadside Inspection-ReadyThe brake system in your heavy-duty Mack? truck has one job: to keep you and everyone around you safe when it brings your truck to a stop.
