Navistar showed off its International LoadStar lightweight, low-cab-forward refuse truck this week at Waste Expo 2012 in Las Vegas. The truck, which was officially unveiled at this year’s Mid-America Trucking Show, was built for severe-duty applications such as waste and recycling.

“We talked to drivers to better understand their needs, what is missing from the trucks they drive, and re-imagined a better solution,” said Jack Allen, president of Navistar’s North American truck group.
