38 • May 2018 INTERNATIONAL TRUCK | HV507, HV607 Manufacturer rounded out its WorkStar truck line successor, the HV Series, with a World of Concrete 2018 unveiling of the International HV507 and HV607. They followed the HV513 and HV613 models' premier at the late-2017 North American Com- mercial Vehicle Show. Model numbering reflects set-forward (5) or set-back axle (6) and 107- or 113-in. bumper-to-back-of-cab dimension, hence the 507, 607 and 513 and 613 plates. "The HV Series is a smart solution for our customers in the business of doing serious work, and the new HV507 and HV607 models demonstrate our continued commitment to the voca- tional segment and broaden our products specific to the concrete industry," says International Vice President, Vocational Truck Business Mark Stasell. Redesigned from the inside out, the HV Series interior was crafted with driver and body builder feedback to ensure a comfortable and productive environment, while the exterior maintains powerful styling. The HV507 and HV607 run on Cum- mins B6.7 or L9 power, or the new International A26, a 12-liter workhorse introduced concurrent with the HV Series. BRIDGE FORMULA A new combination of chassis and power features converges in the International HV507 bridge formula model. An aggressive set-forward front axle, Cummins L9 engine, and rear-engine power take-off deliver a powerful yet lightweight chassis for key vocational applications, especially concrete placement. The entire HV Series bears what International engineers dub intelligent features specified with a goal of best-in-class uptime and packaged into a truck exhibiting brute strength. Each model is engineered to make it easier and faster to clear maintenance and return to the road. With an inside wheel cut of up to 50 degrees, International engineers note, the HV Series can easily navigate tight city streets or construction sites, saving driver time, reducing work-site collisions and boosting productivity. Every model can be equipped with OnCommand Connection, the company's remote diagnostics system and Over-the-air (OTA) programming. Available through the nine-pin International LINK device, OTA enables drivers or fleet managers to utilize a mobile interface to initiate authorized engine programming at the cus- tomer's facility over a safe, secure Wi-Fi connection. The service offers an easy, secure means of updating engine control modules to reflect the latest manufacturer-approved calibrations, without the necessity of visiting a dealer or other service facility. EXPEDITED UP FITTING The International HV Series provides the ideal foundation for an almost unlimited number of applications. Customers can order the specific chassis configuration needed for any application upfront, which substantially reduces the time and expense involved to up fit the vehicle post production. To further improve driver productivity and safety, the HV Series features Diamond Logic, an advanced electrical system that streamlines chassis and body equipment integration and allows customers to program auto- mated tasks.
