I Dedicate This Album To The Only Mack Truck Model Considered An Outcast. Let's Give It Up For The Mack Savage FDM Series Front Discharge Mixer. The World's Most Hated And Unwanted Mack Concrete Mixer Trucks.
Found a one owner 1917 Mack AB near Baltimore MD. Was stored in a house garage since 1988. Prior to that it was stored in a barn on the eastern side of Baltimore since the 1940's. Truck is in excellent condition but will need some TLC

#ThrowbackThursday to 1966 where this hardworking B61T Mack is ploughing through the bulldust near Surat in South Central Queensland.
Bull dust on dirt roads was very common until the beef roads scheme in 70's started
The dirt gets that pulverized it goes like talcum powder and feels like your driving thru deep water as pulls you from side to side
Lots of speed is required and on long sections it is some times required to hook road trains together with "stiff bars" or towing poles to push and pull each other thru
I haven't had Mrs Mack in bull dust like that in over ten years, its very hard on the truck, the driver and the load
I will drive a few extra hundred miles around the road than push thru bull dust for miles
