Mack adds Anthem fairing, ELD

Mack Mack is adding an extended chassis fairing with integrated step to its Anthem, which the company says will improve fuel economy by an additional 0.5%.

It brings the total fuel savings available from the Mack HE+ package to 10% over a standard spec’, the company says.

Mack also announced availability of a cloud-based electronic logging device (ELD) through Geotab. There’s no hardware to install and no device pairing needed via Bluetooth or wifi. This will be available for order in the fourth quarter, while the fairing is available now.

Both new offerings were announced at the American Trucking Associations’ Management Conference & Exhibition.
