Class 8 Low Cab Forward Vehicle Excels in Concrete Pumping, Concrete and Aggregate Conveyor Applications

Sterling Truck Corporation has introduced the Condor Class 8 low cab forward vehicle to the construction market. The 68-inch BBC vehicle will be available in 6 x 4 and 4 x 2 configurations and with a multitude of component and feature options. Sterling unveiled the truck to the construction industry at the 2001 World of Concrete Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

According to John Merrifield, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Sterling Truck Corporation, the low cab forward (LCF) configuration presents distinct advantages for concrete pumping applications and concrete and aggregate conveyors. Until now, however, these operators were forced to choose from older, outdated LCF trucks. The Sterling Condor is a completely new design that ushers in a new era of safety, ergonomics, maneuverability, durability, uptime and serviceability for Class 8 LCF operators.

Highlights of the Sterling Condor include:

"We believe the tough, efficient, technologically-advanced Condor will excel in construction-related applications and will deliver a multitude of benefits to its owner," Merrifield said.

Condor's versatility gives it many applications within and outside the construction industry, Merrifield added. Sterling first debuted the Condor to the refuse industry in May 2000. Other applications of the vehicle include public utility service, heavy towing, heating oil and bulk fuel delivery and tree spade applications.

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 construction industry. Sterling also offers the tough and versatile vocationally-oriented L-Line Class 7 & 8 conventionals, as well as the Class 5-8 Acterra, which are used in a variety of construction applications.
