Milford, CT, July 20, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- In an expansion of the company and its container division, Grillo Services, LLC is the first Connecticut business to purchase Caterpillar’s new CT660 commercial truck in a roll-off configuration. The purchase will enable Grillo to increase its solid waste disposal division to serve municipal, commercial and residential customers, and provide expanded services to tree removal and large scale landscape companies, saving them time and money in tree removal and organic recycling.
The custom built, sleek, ergonomically designed Caterpillar CT660, model year 2012, features Caterpillar’s CX31 transmission for increased fuel mileage as well as a set-back front axle with a shorter wheel base, allowing for a better turning radius and greater cab visibility.
Caterpillar had previously only manufactured diesel truck engines for truck chassis made by Ford, International, PACCAR, and Freightliner. Just this past year, the company began manufacturing their own trucks, following an extended period of road testing.
“This purchase will help Grillo Services expand our container division, offering clients one-stop shopping,” said Grillo Services President, Michael J. Grillo. “We expect the division to double its contracts as a result,” he continued.
“We are delighted that Grillo Services is our first roll-off truck purchaser,” said David J Gillen, On-Highway Sales Representative at H.O. Penn Machinery, the Caterpillar Dealer for Lower New York and Connecticut. “We look forward to further facilitating Grillo Services’ future growth.”
