  2. I got no excuses other then this damn sure ain't my old Peterbilt. I couldn't keep up with him if he went backwards with a chain pulling me. I am heavier, but the truck isn't running right. Even if it was he could be going up hill and me down and it would be a lost cause. Thanks again for lunch. Catch you next time around

  3. Life is like a roll of toilet paper... when you get near the end it goes faster! Yes Mark, I lost my Dad my best friend in 2004, I would call him just about every night to shoot the shit about how the kids and the trucks was doin!! When he died I had this empty feeling inside just knowing that the person that I would go to when I was in trouble or could not find any answer to the many questions that life would throw at you, he would always have an answer or a way around or he would say 'in the end Ernie it will all work itself out and if it hasn't ?? well it ain't the end yet' I still just wa

  4. Found these two pictures on the web of a couple Roy Strom MR's (or whatever they're called now) rear packers. Looks like one was at a waste expo. I always thought Strom's trucks had an "east coast" look to them with the gold leaf lettering and pinstripes.

Due to getting my B75 back, the R is on the market for now..."73 R795ST,i bought it from the ORIGINAL OWNERS!Truck is from New Jersey but was moved to South Carolina in the "80's.It was ordered new by them as a lowboy truck,pulling dump trailer on occasion.ENDT865 @325HP(engine brake) with a 6 speed low hole.44K rears,full double frame with NO spreading!Everything on this truck is straight and tight as it has low original miles/hours.Very dry as well,not full of leaks...Cab roof ...panel has some rust,but is repaiable.Comes with a N.O.S piece if you wanted to go that route,drip edge is nice.Ha

  6. This has been the longest stretch not being behind the wheel of my Big Mack Trucks. The first big snow in January left my only escape from the shop covered...it never went away and the subsequent snows just made it worse ...last week I had had enough...I thought the ol' superdog could make it, but it was not to be...I thought she would have to stay outside, but after about an hour of digging and 50 lbs of millsorb I got her put away... Taking a peek Didne get very far! The aftermath... Back in her house...

  7. Well, as of Sunday it is complete. The a/c is all hooked up, lines, power, belt. You can turn the unit on and the fan works and it also powers the fan on the condensor. I had to add a tensioner bolt to the compressor to allow for easier belt adjustment. Just sitting in the cab with the fan on high.......it is quite a blast of air. I think if it cools as well as it should, it should be quite chilly. We'll see how it does with the old drafty cab at highway speed. I think it is suppose to be 14K BTU and that is larger then a typical small window air conditioner, so with this little cab I

  8. Sorry to hear of all the troubles and especially the death of your friend and co-worker. My condolences to you and his family. It is too bad he didn't get to the ER sooner. If you are feeling poorly don't mess around. Time is critical. Call an ambulance or have someone haul your but there if you are in the boonies. They can run a simple test to check for a heart attack and it's quick. It can save your life and/or rule out a potentially fatal problem. Play it safe and you may save your own life. Let's all say a prayer for the departed and put it in our minds to take fast action when we

  9. I don't know off hand what the rear ratio is. Ours is an MP8 at 405 hp. The driver LOVES it! The jake works great. The mileage took a hit with the cold weather. It's been averaging 5.75 since it's been cold out. Pretty much pulling a cement tank full time and the way the PTO is set up, the RPMs of the truck are at 1400. Doing that 3-4 times a day for a half an hour at crack doesn't help MPG's either. It been back to the dealer twice since June, which I don't think is too bad. Both times were for updates, not problems. It has been decided over here, that any new iron will have an

  14. A few week ago MH Fred sent me a email of a discussion going on of MH 4X4s that UPS had used. We were on the road for 5 weeks. I was a 30 year Feeder driver now retired and always liked the MH the best, only saw one in Wyoming back in 89. He had came out of Jackson Wy. going over Togwotee pass headed for Riverton Wy. on his nightly run. On snow covered roads he wasn't stopping to chain up. Wish I could remember his name. Heard a rumor that it was his truck pictured in our 1994 Calender, see pic. I heard the wheel base was two feet longer to accommodate the transfer case. They used them all ove

  19. Well, the dealer kinda lied to me about how the truck was spec'd out. They said they just went off what the guy who traded it in told them. It was suppose to have the overdrive version with 3.7, but it actually has the direct drive with 2.64 . I didn't find that out till I looked into it more. I wasn't too happy, but I guess I will live with it for now. I don't do much off road work so I'm crossing my fingers it will be alright. There are lots of people that are running around with over the road trucks doing construction and one of my friends actually orders his KW with I think 3.08 for const

  26. I had a MP7 395c, mDrive, 3.50 ratio truck speced as the go to "chicago" dump truck. They have the same truck on the lot with the 3.3? rear end available now and are saying it will be fine. I really don't have a clue about the mDrive. I just really like the idea of driving around and drinking coffee without having to shift! I have been looking for a couple of new or newer lightweight steel dump trailers, they seem impossible to find right now. Anyway, I am trying to avoid an 8 week delay for building, and want to be able to hit the ground running at the end of march. Looks like we will be hav

He was the first Safety Man they had. Old man is also very wise with legal issues. One thing he taught me that sticks out to this day- anytime you get caught in an accident whether it is minor or major, your fault or not.....As soon as you possibly can, you sit down in a quiet place, and you write down each and every damn thing you can possibly remember about the wreck. You sign it with the date and the time. Doing this, as we

You might be able to find one on ebay or at a flea market, but time is money. Might as well order it from Watts and be done with it. Mike

  40. Ban cigarettes, legalize pot. Legislate the steel industry, coal industry and industry in general out of existence. Make it impossible to own a truck that actually runs and doesn't have to stop on IT's schedule to 'regenerate" wherever and whenever that might happen. Don't worry about the fuel economy of that truck or the price of the fuel. The driver will figure it out. Promote EV's (electric vehicles) that get most of their power from COAL but don't let that little tidbit slow you down.

Hi this is my first post in this forum, i'm a big fan of the old U.S vehicles , Mack is one of my best favorite trucks make and it is very rare in my country Algeria, yesterday my friend Akram sent me pictures of 3 destroyed Mack R-Series he found in Ouled Derradj junkyard, east Algeria, so i was happy and sad in the same time because i was waiting to see this trucks again here (i didn't see them from the '90), but at least in good condition, so unfortunately it wasn't, mr.Akram tried to get more info's like what company did use them or what are the owners but he couldn't make it, may be anoth

  46. You're right that he does import U.S. trucks into Europe. When you go to Volvo's Mack brand website --> click on Mack Worldwide --> Dealer Locator --> Netherlands, Volvo still lists NIBM (N.I.B.M. Industrie Bouwmachines B.V. to be exact). But interestingly, NIBM's website doesn't mention the first thing about Mack. (http://www.nibm.nl/) For all intents and purposes, Volvo Group only wants to sell Mack-branded trucks in Australia/New Zealand and select countries in South America. Volvo Group wants the Volvo brand to get the sales in all other global markets. Unlike the many global comp

  47. In addition to the Cruise-Liner and Ultra-Liner, even the Mack N-model was no stranger to the global market. I recall a large order of Macungie-built Cruise-Liners with 44 rears for an international customer who requested used (worn out) tires be installed by Mack, as the customer planned to install his own tires upon delivery. The trucks were sitting all over the Allentown Howard Sober storage yard with flat tires. Owing partially to Mack's success in neighboring Iran, Turkey became a huge market for Mack Trucks. Quite a few Turkish Cruise-Liners were ordered with the short 76 inch sle
