The new MB-65 commercial bus chassis from Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) is ideal for light-duty to medium-duty shuttle and big bus applications. Built with comfort and safety in mind, the front-end diesel engine is lowered, resulting in a flat-floor driver cockpit area, enabling operators to safely move from the cockpit to the passenger area. The MB-65 is powered by an Allison transmission and a 2010 Cummins ISB 6.7-liter engine. Hendrickson SofTek taper leaf suspension is featured on the front and rear, and the MB-65 offers a 55-degree wheel cut, an industry best. The MB-65 joins FCCC's full lineup of quality commercial bus chassis for the church transportation industry, including the MB-55, MB-HEV hybrid-electric, XB Series and S2 diesel-powered shuttle bus chassis.
I.Weiss Stretch Shapes
Stretch Shapes have become a very popular element on church stages. They offer an inexpensive yet effective method to modernize or dress up a space by providing an interesting background that double functions as surface for projection and lighting effects. They are easy and quick to set up. Multiple panels, stretched or freestanding, can be combined to create a variety of different designs. They custom fabricate to your ideas. All panels are made of IFR Tendo Spandex, to meet NFPA 701.
