More Interior Space

The cab’s fully integrated design puts the driver first. This encourages driver attention, improves comfort and facilitates operation. This makes it a significant advantage in attracting and retaining the best people in your company.

Low Step

With a 15-inch low step height, 2 inches lower than the industry standard, drivers can get on and off easily from the street or sidewalk, making a day’s work easier and helping to reduce the risk of injury.

Raised Work Area for the Driver

Drivers come in all sizes, which is why our design of pedals, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, integrated controls and temperature-controlled seats is designed to accommodate anyone from 4′ 11″ to 6′ 2″.

Direct Visibility

Direct visibility from the cab achieves the highest 5-star rating for the direct vision standard. This helps drivers to see obstacles and minimize potential incidents on the road.

Advanced Driver Assistance System

Fully factory-installed and standard on every McNeilus Volterra ZSL vehicle, this integrated system includes blind spot monitoring, 360° camera view, front and rear collision notification, parking assistance, rearview camera, rear cross-traffic assist, lane departure warning and advanced emergency braking.

Instrument Panel

The gauge display keeps the driver informed of speed, odometer, battery regeneration, tire pressure, indicator lights, 360° camera images and more.

Center Console Screen

The customizable 15-inch central touchscreen simplifies driver controls – air conditioning, lights, cameras, mirrors, and more. This helps minimize distractions and makes operation intuitive for greater driver awareness.

The Volterra ZSL™ from McNeilus is positioned as a revolution in the refuse collection truck industry. By adopting this technology, companies can not only attract top talent, but also promote safer, more environmentally friendly driving, setting new standards in the industry
