Sterling Truck Corporation has unveiled a Condor front loader to the refuse industry. The Condor is Sterling's Class 8 low cab forward vehicle representing the pinnacle of refuse truck technology. Sterling exhibited a Condor with a front loader refuse body at the April 3-5 Waste Expo 2001 show in Chicago.

"The Sterling Condor is the ideal vehicle for front loaders and other refuse collection applications," said John Merrifield, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Sterling Truck Corporation and Western Star Trucks. 'With its numerous innovations and advanced features, the Condor delivers the performance and uptime sought after by these fleets."

According to Merrifield, the Condor presents distinct advantages to front loader and other refuse vehicle operators. These include:

Outstanding Visibility

Great Maneuverability

Exceptional Comfort

Leading Ergonomics

Multiple Steering Configurations


Tough Componentry

Maximum Uptime

"We believe the Sterling Condor will delight front loader operators and refuse fleet managers alike," Merrifield said. "Operators will appreciate the vehicle's superb maneuverability, excellent lines of sight and in-cab comfort. Fleet managers will value the truck's durability and toughness as well as its productivity and safety advantages."

Besides commercial front loaders, other refuse industry applications of the Sterling Condor include rears loaders, side loaders, automated residential loaders and roll-off containers. The vehicle also can accommodate front snowplow mounts, often needed by refuse fleets in northern climates which utilize dual-purpose equipment.

Sterling will sell and service the Condor through the Sterling North American dealer network. The vehicle will be backed by Sterling's comprehensive commitment to customer support.

The new Condor joins a host of offerings from Sterling for the refuse industry. Sterling also offers the vocationally-oriented L-Line Class 7 & 8 conventionals, as well as the Class 5-8 Acterra, which are used in a variety of refuse applications.
