TerraPro Gets Telematics

Rolf Lockwood

GuardDog Connect, Mack’s integrated diagnostics and telematics product, is now standard in all Mack TerraPro cabover trucks equipped with a Mack MP engine.

It monitors fault codes that could potentially shut down a truck or lead to an unplanned visit to the shop. It quickly diagnoses problems and automatically schedules dealer repairs, also confirming that needed parts are in stock and ready to install, all while the truck is still on the job.

Mack made GuardDog Connect standard on the TerraPro concrete pump chassis last year, the first OEM to offer such support service for pump applications. GuardDog Connect has been standard on the Mack Pinnacle, Mack Granite and Titan models since 2013.

Aside from a concrete pumper chassis, TerraPros can be configured for applications like dump, mixer, and refuse collection.
