ACCO Engine

Powering the ACCO is the versatile and highly-regarded Cummins ISL 8.9 litre 6 cylinder turbocharged engine, fitted with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology which reduces engine emissions to comply with the current ADR 80/03 or Euro 5 emissions requirements.  As an added benefit, parts and servicing outlets for the Cummins engine are widely available across Australia.

There is a choice of engine horsepower ratings of:

  • 280hp
  • 320hp
  • 340hp

And with up to 1105 lb/ft of torque available, from low in the rev range the ACCO has the hefty pulling power to suit a wide array of applications.

ACCO Driveline

The range of suspension configurations available on the ACCO makes it incredibly versatile. The front suspension options include:

  • Hendrickson parabolic steel springs
  • Hendrickson multi-leaf springs or
  • Hendrickson Airtek air suspension with leaf springs

While rear suspension options range from:

  • Hendrickson Haulmaax HMX460 (rubber block)
  • Hendrickson Primaax air suspension or
  • Hendrickson HAS-460

The tranmission fitted across the ACCO range is the 6-speed Allison full automatic transmission. All ACCO Agitator and Compactor models also have a transmission mounted Power Take Off (PTO) fitted to allow for additional components to be powered by the engine. This allows the ACCO to be versatile and adaptable with a large number of bodies that can be fitted for use in a large range of applications.  The full automatic is well suited to the stop and start nature of compactor and agitator work for which the ACCO is widely used.

The ACCO offers a wide choice of Meritor rear axles, with ratings ranging from 10.4 tonnes capacity in the 4×2, to 18.1 tonnes in the 6×4 and 8×4. Where circumstances require, the ACCO offers optional driver-controlled differential locks for additional traction is slippery conditions.

The ACCO braking system provides plenty of stopping power no matter what the application. The dual air braking system uses Meritor Q-Plus 419mm drum brakes measuring 178mm wide at the rear, and 152mm at the front. Auto slack adjusters are standard on Compactor models and ABS is standard across the range.  Another standard feature is Active Traction Control ensuring traction is maintained on slippery surfaces.
