Autocar has added a third construction model in its Class 8 severe-duty truck series. The DC-64D Dump, assembled in Alabama and dubbed “Badass,” joins the DC-64M and DC-64P for concrete mixer and pump packages.
“The DC-64D is expertly configured and pre-engineered for seamless body integration,” without requiring “significant structural modifications,” says Autocar Truck President Eric Schwartz. The truck is built to be a relentless workhorse that keeps chugging along when the work gets tough, he adds, and reflects the company’s collaboration with suppliers who have 200-plus years of severe-duty truck engineering and manufacturing experience.
The premier DC-64D is outfitted with an RS Godwin SCS dump body and features Hardox steel construction for durability and weight optimization. Inaugural Cummins power options are the L9, X12 and ISX12N CNG, with the X15 engine on deck for 2022.
