Moxy MT36 Demo Truck Hits the Dirt in Massachusetts

The Moxy MT36 demo truck was recently hauled up to Goodall and Sons Tractor, Westboro, MA, because Carl Goodall, owner, wanted to see how the truck ran.

John McCourt Construction Co, a large company in the Boston area, agreed to demo the truck. McCourt was capping a large landfill in Quincy and turning it into a golf course.

The MT36, working along with four Volvo A35Cs, was being loaded by a Hitachi EX550, and then hauled uphill about one-half mile. At the dumping area, the trucks had to back over soft fresh fill, and the going was pretty tough.

On the first load, the operator was able to back so far with the Moxy because of its 400-horsepower (298 KW) engine. When he was backing up, he was actually in the high range, so the low range was suggested to get even better performance from the truck.

“The MT36 front end steered better in the mud, provided a smooth ride and superior visibility,” the operator said.
