Fontaine debuts International dual drive modification

Fontaine International Premium Dual Drive option

Fontaine Modification says its new International Premium Dual Drive modification makes it comfortable for a driver to operate a refuse collection vehicle, street sweeper or road-striping truck from the right side as the left.

Fontaine’s Premium Dual Drive modification adds a right-hand drive station to International MV and HV trucks for applications that require an operator to be able to drive from either side. It provides significant improvements over Fontaine’s other dual drive offering, including increased legroom, the company says.

“Our engineers have worked hard to make the right-side driving position virtually identical to the ergonomics of the OEM left-side position,” says Jamil Young, president, Fontaine Modification Medium & Heavy Truck Operations. “This helps drivers be as comfortable and productive as possible throughout their shifts.”

Fontaine performs the modification at its facility in Springfield, Ohio, near the International plant where MV and HV trucks are manufactured. The International Premium Dual Drive modification can be performed on new vehicles as part of Fontaine’s ship-thru agreement with International, so the process is seamless and cost-effective for the customer, the company adds.
