Pacific Truck Centers donates Freightliner to diesel tech program
Pacific Truck Centers, in partnership with Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA), recently donated a used Freightliner truck for training at the Diesel Technology Department of Rogue Community College (RCC) in Medford, Ore.
Managers at Pacific say they first approached Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) in Portland earlier this fall about obtaining a truck as a gift to the college, and with the help of Duane Stainbrook at Portland Freightliner, they procured a 2007 Freightliner Century Class truck with an automatic transmission, RT40-145 differentials and 2007 emissions.
“The donation is the most technologically advanced piece of equipment our program has for training students, and has substantially raised the bar to our curriculum,” says Kemp Pheley, Diesel Technology Department Chair at RCC.
Pacific’s New Truck Sales Manager Todd Tracy drove the truck to the Medford branch from Portland, and Pacific’s Travis Greene officially delivered it to RCC during their board meeting last month. The donated Freightliner will be used for complete system training at RCC’s Diesel Technology Department, which includes the engine, transmission, chassis, and differentials.
