A New Star for Towing and Recovery
Miller Industries announced the delivery of a new Century 1150, 50ton rotator with a knee-boom underlift, on the all-new Western Star 49X chassis. This is the first heavy-duty unit built for the towing and recovery industry on the new model from Western Star. The Century 1150 rotator continues to be Miller’s most sought-after recovery unit. The availability of unique model options such as the 1150R (roller), 1150RXP (side-puller), and the 1150 knee-boom contribute to the continued success and increased versatility of the 50-ton heavy-duty rotator. “With continued improvement in safety, strength, and technology, our new Century 1150 just made sense to go on the new 49x truck from Western Star. We couldn’t be more excited with the way this truck performs.” Said J.R. Cady, owner of Ten-West Towing in Bakersfield, CA. “It’s always a pleasure to work with J.R. and the team at TenWest Towing.” Said Billy Drane, Director of Heavy-Duty Equipment for Miller Industries. “The industryleading performance of the Century 1150 is the perfect compliment to the new 49x chassis from Western Star.” Drane continued. There are four engine options for the 49X, providing power output ranges from 350 to 605 horsepower and torque from 1,250 to 2,050 lb.-ft. Available are a Gen5 Detroit DD15, Detroit DD16, Cummins X12 and Cummins X15. Transmission options come with PTO capability: An Allison, an Eaton Fuller and two vocational-spec Detroit DT12 automated manuals. The DT12-V and DT12-VX each feature large robust gears, allowing for improved startability and low-speed maneuverability. You will be able to see this industry-first unit as well as many other industry-leading units from Miller Industries’ distributors at the 2021 American Towman Showplace in Las Vegas, NV in September.
