I hear you Rob.

There are plenty of days where a camelback is not a cushy ride....not even close.

Years ago talked to a fellow in Vineland, NJ that swore that Chalmers suspension was the only way to go with a dump truck.

I've actually driven an old IH with Chalmers and didn't think it articulated as well in greasy type mud? I'm no expert by far and that's been about 30 years, (or so) ago.

Growing up in Texas there were a few Macks around but the mainstay was the Autocars as far as heavy duty trucks go. I think the oil fields had a lot to do with that. In the fifties on the highways you saw a lot of IH's, GMCs, Whites, Fords, Autocars, also it was fairly common to see Petes and KWs, then there were the Macks too but not as many as the other makes.

On Hendrickson? You will have to keep a load in the body all the time. Ready the kidney belt!


That's about as "bulletproof" as it gets besides "camelback".

I'm prolly about as die hard Mack as the best of them, but someday I'll have an Autocar dumper with a Detroit and air shift 4X4 on Hendrickson.

Got to get something I already own finished first though.......

Ok. You got me to post. It's not that i was't going to. Baseball caps, fire trucks, and vending machines are all in fun. I would be proud to own any of them. I do have the school bus. I now have a lot of good friends because of this hobby and Eddy you are at the top.
I really try to like you .

^ Fixed it for you Ken

Jeeeesh.....thanks, Eddy for throwing Mack guys under the bus with "but the Mack guys were good sports".

We work so hard at "not playing well with others".

I don't know...
