New IMT DSC12 on Sprinter Chassis Can Double Fuel Savings
Iowa Mold Tooling Co. Inc. (IMT), an Oshkosh Corporation company, introduces the new DSC12 mechanics truck, a compact, fuel-efficient addition to the Dominator family of mechanics trucks. Built on a Dodge or Freightliner Sprinter chassis, the DSC12 is the perfect option for customers looking to get maximum fuel economy out of a vehicle that can easily maneuver in tight, urban environments.
At only 2,150 lbs., the DSC12 unit is the most compact of all the trucks in the Dominator series. The DSC12 body can be mounted on a Dodge or Freightliner Sprinter chassis and burns about half as much fuel as a full-sized mechanics body mounted on a traditional Class 4 chassis.
The DSC12 is equipped with an IMT 3203i electric telescopic crane, which has 3,200 lbs. of maximum lift capacity and a maximum 15’ of horizontal reach. This new body incorporates all the key features of the Dominator lineup that give the operator more comfort and mobility around the vehicle and make the truck easier to use. Some of these
- Improved tools and parts access;
- Patented floor structure that reduces body weight;
- Patent-pending, three-point door latches that require less force to operate;
- Single-hand operation on the tailgate;
- Patent-pending shelf hanger bracket system;
- Side packs designed for greater storage; and
- Improved visibility of rear LED taillights.

2010 MaxxForce 13-liter Advanced EGR Engine
One step closer to meeting the stringent emissions standards required for 2010, Navistar has unveiled its 2010 MaxxForce 13-liter Advanced EGR engine.
To meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 2010 emissions standards for on-highway diesel engines, MaxxForce Advanced EGR engines will use proven technologies such as advanced fuel injection, air management, electronic controls and proprietary combustion technology.
Navistar’s EGR approach will not require the use of urea or the addition of heavy on-vehicle urea storage tanks, converters, heaters, and the additional electronics required by SCR systems. MaxxForce Advanced EGR engines are no-hassle, business-as-usual solutions that will deliver lower operating costs for customers.
For SCR systems in the U.S., the EPA will require a series of driver compliance controls, including a complex array of warning lights as well as a disabling system which will automatically power down the engine when urea levels run low

Plug-In Hybrid Underground Utility Vehicle
DUECO Inc., in conjunction with Odyne and Vanair Manufacturing, is the first to offer a Plug-In Hybrid Underground Utility Vehicle (HUUV). With enough power for plastic pipe fusing, the truck’s hybrid drive system powers an air compressor, exportable power, and an auxiliary climate control system.
The Vanair 125 / 185 CFM underdeck air compressor is a common piece of equipment used by utility companies to operate pneumatic tools, such as pavement breakers, tampers and mole tools. The HUUV is equipped with a compressor automatic shut down device that automatically starts and stops the compressor based on demand. This element substantially increases battery life and decreases needless compressor operation.
At the end of a workday, the HUUV plugs into a charging station where the batteries recharge during off-peak hours. The truck can also recharge at any point, while idling or driving, with the conventional diesel engine. The unit is complete with regenerative braking and launch assist to provide additional fuel efficiency, emission enhancements, extended brake life. These additional PHEV features offer greater benefits than just an idle reduction system.
DUECO Inc. and Odyne have previously unveiled the industry’s first Plug-in Hybrid medium-duty aerial lift, heavy-duty tandem axle aerial lift and digger derrick.
