About This Handbook
This handbook is referred to as the Mack TerraPro LEU Series Operator’s Handbook. It covers all Mack TerraProTM LEU models. Its identification number is 21394654. Keep this handbook with the vehicle at all times to ensure that each owner and/or operator will have access to all pertinent information relating to the operation and handling of this vehicle.

Basic Configuration
The Mack TerraPro LEU model has a low-entry, cab-forward-style operators compartment. One-step entry and dual steering/braking arrangements make it a very popular and practical vehicle for refuse management companies.

Driver Side
The following cab entry and exit procedures, along with the safety guidelines outlined in Three-Limb Contact earlier in this section, should be used with this MACK vehicle.

Entry
These entry procedures are illustrated on the following page:

  1. With both feet firmly on the ground, grab the outside handhold with one hand and grab the inside handhold with the other hand. Then raise one foot to the bottom step. (See figure 1.)
  2. Move hand [1] from the inside handhold to the steering wheel, then raise your other foot to the cab floor. (See figure 2.)
  3. Move hand [2] from the outside handhold to the steering wheel. (See figure 3.)
  4. Bring the other foot inside the cab and sit down. (See figure 4.)

Exit
To exit, follow the illustrations in reverse order:

  1. With both hands gripping the steering wheel, stand up and face the inside of the cab. Move one foot to the bottom step. (See figure 4.)
  2. Move one hand to the outside handhold and continue to grip the steering wheel with the other hand. (See figure 3.)
  3. With one foot firmly on the bottom step, lower the other foot to the ground. (See figure 2.)
  4. With both hands firmly gripping the handholds, lower the other foot to the ground. (See figure 1.)

Passenger Side
The following cab entry and exit procedures, along with the safety guidelines outlined in the Three-Limb Contact section, should be used with this MACK vehicle.

Entry
These entry procedures are illustrated on the following page:

  1. Grab the handhold with one hand, and place the other hand on the steering wheel. Do not use the folding door as a handhold. Raise one foot to the cab floor. (See figure 1.)
  2. While still gripping the handhold and the steering wheel, move the other foot into the cab. (See figure 2.)

  1. Grip the handhold with one hand, and the steering wheel with the other hand. Then move one foot to the ground. (See figure 2.)
  2. While still gripping the handhold and steering wheel, move the other foot to the ground. (See figure 1.)

Driver Visibility
Poor driver visibility is not only annoying, but extremely unsafe under any circumstance. Without proper maintenance of visibility-related components, adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow and frost can seriously reduce visibility. Take time before winter arrives to check the following:
Windshield Wipers

  1. Check windshield wiper operation and speeds.
  2. Inspect condition and travel of blades. Install new refills for any blades that are cracked, brittle, torn, or coated with road oil along the wiping edge.

Windshield Washers

  1. Check operation of windshield washer.
  2. Inspect system hoses and replace if brittle or worn.
  3. Inspect washer reservoir. Drain and flush if dirt particles are evident in washer solution.
  4. Fill reservoir with commercially available non-freezing type washer fluid.

Mack TerraPro Series (LEU Series) Operator's Manual
Hollow-core rubber weather seals around some cab doors may lose their resilience in extremely cold temperatures (i.e., –40°C/–40°F and below). Under these conditions, it may be necessary to drill holes to penetrate the hollow core. This allows entrapped air to escape, thereby easing the opening/closing of cab door(s). Be sure to keep the key locks clean and dry to prevent occasional winter freeze-up. Use of antifreeze lubricants is neither required nor recommended.

Outside Mirror Heater
In areas of frequent snowfall and ice, it may be beneficial to install heated mirrors which will defrost and de-ice cab mirrors. Heated mirrors eliminate the need to pull off the highway and stand on the roadside to scrape ice and snow from the mirrors during winter driving conditions. Heated mirrors are available either cab mounted or fender mounted.
