    I think she'd be a lot more attractive if she's learn to keep her effn mouth shut till she knew what to talk about, and what's a waste of time. Long term she'll probably be one of those that rides the hills and valleys ultimately throwing in the towel frustrated as nuthin moves fast enough; or is caught up in some unsavory activity becoming the media's next circus act. She already has the start on the circus act part.

    Lots of iron here! The LV models were built between 1948-1961.

    If illegals are stopped at the border, then any human trafficking is also stopped at the border......end of story. It's all about enforcing our already existing laws......and sending a strong message. Then, 95 percent of this will end.

    Is there a us source for that? All of the ones I have seen are custom built and vary widely

    Why would anyone buy a new truck from a manufacturer they know is going to gouge them on parts.. eventually? Seems kind of short sighted.

    Trump’s proposed freeze would result in 500,000 barrels per day more oil consumption by the year 2030. California says the proposal “would worsen air quality for the most vulnerable (and) waste billions of gallons of gasoline.” They talk about wasting fuel , Were already doing it! We probably burn billions of dollars of fuel doing regens over and over tryng to correct the emission related problems created by this crap they bolt on the side of our new vehicles !

    Saw this on www.truckinginfo.com Mack Trucks will partner with Republic Services to build and operate a fully electric Mack LR refuse truck to help the refuse fleet achieve zero-emissions goals. Benefits of fully electric trucks include zero carbon emissions, reduced noise, and environmental sustainability. For refuse hauling companies, the ability to operate quietly during the early morning hours is an attractive feature of electric vehicles, according to the truckmaker. “Mack looks forward to partnering with Republic Services to test the benefits a fully electric LR can offer in its day-to-day operations,” said Jonathan Randall, Mack Trucks senior vice president of North American sales and marketing. “As a leader in refuse and alternative solutions, Mack is uniquely positioned to offer a proprietary, integrated and fully electric solution for North America.” At this point in the development of electromobility technology and infrastructure, Mack believes a fully electric vehicle will work best in a closed loop application in which the truck returns home every night – such as in the refuse industry. “Given we operate one of the largest vocational fleets in the U.S., we are continuously evaluating innovative approaches and technologies to improve the performance, economics and environmental impact of our fleet,” said Don Slager, president and CEO of Republic Services. “We are excited to be working with Mack in the development of an electric garbage truck as it would represent a significant step towards a cleaner, safer, and more efficient fleet while helping to preserve our Blue Planet for future generations.” Further details about the specs and testing will be announced at a later date. Additionally, in early 2018 Mack announced the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) also will test a fully electric Mack LR model, which will be operational in 2019. Those specs and details will also be announced at a later date.

    Good point. Then how to you repurpose one of those curb sniffers. Old Macks could always be repurposed.

    Our humble opinion....... The machines our rolling equipment feeds never sleep 24/7/365 days a year. My Super is afraid to purchase any deeper into final 4, particularly on Liehberr Eq.

    you can`t turn em tight` can`t keep tires on em because if you have to get on brakes hard you flat spot tires` single landing gear sinks when loaded ` are a real pain for one person to hookup` single gear usualy won`t lift tongue if dropped loaded or bump it a little to hard and collapse the gear` plus lots more reasons( i )don`t like em this is one more reason not to like though not involved

    Sure, just think how much time sitting for regen, sensor failures and other mandated EPA friendly additions the lower the dependability. I'll stick with my old stuff. Here is an example. Sandy and Irene did massive damage at Port of Egypt and Orient Point Ferry. I was eliminated from the jetty repairs because i had "old equipment that is probably not reliable" . Two weeks after the contractor started and spent 8 plus days with down new equipment, I was asked to take his contract, which I did at a 30% increase in cost to them. Newer is not alway better when it puts food on the table. My humble opinion.

    Your current setup is a short fifth wheel trailer and a dolly. You could probably lower the deck height by 6" or more by using a turntable trailer. Do you really need a three axle trailer? Have you considered some aluminum corner protectors with a pocket added so you could place them with a square ended pole and use the same pole to adjust the straps after you throw them over the load. That way you can minimize the climbing. Do use a ladder, if you lower the trailer deck to match the truck you can get a step ladder and add a hook for the rub rail. Work safely One of my nicknames growing up around boats was monkey because I would climb or crawl into just about any spot. Now I have multiple 4, 5 and 6 foot stepladders, thank you Home Depot and Lowes Black Friday sales

    For the most vulnerable? What about the not so vulnerable? Air quality doesn't discriminate. Either it's bad for everyone or it's not. Read as leftist speak trying to control the middle class.

    Your fabricator made a great job! At least as long as I can see it on my screen. So far I haven't found a shop which could made such 3D curves. The most of them are newly organized small companies with laser cutters and straight bending presses. Good thing they do exist though. Once again, thanks for the reference pics.

    I will say the loudest part of a garbage truck in the morning is it dumping the bins, but I do like the idea of a fully electric truck by Mack. I’ve though about what a good idea it’d be to take and old cog driven Mack and put an electric motor on the cog, but I’d love to see what Mack does here. One method is literally just replacing the engine and transmission with an electric motor or putting and electric motor on every axle/wheel. The best part about electric motors is that they’re insanely torquey but lack too much speed, which is perfect for the application of a truck, yet everyone seemed to go with a car first. I’ve been looking into this industry for a few years now and was really excited at the prospect of a Tesla Semi, and even after it was shown off I wanted to see it in commercial use. Glad Mack is jumping on board the electricity train.

    Thanks, I'm trying to make it my best one yet. I really like the style of this truck. Trying to be patient and get it back together right. I've had to drop it several times and walk away for a breather when I found myself frustrated or rushing/

    I believe it is the same truck. It is being lettered as #504.

    Added a newer dog to the fleet, 2014 Superliner 685hp MP10 with mdrive trans. Shown pulling new seed and fertilizer tender bin for wheat planting. I know its mainly Volvo, but a whole lot smoother on our rough roads than the old girl. Hope they play together nicely

    Wow, what a coincidence! Looking at the serial number 1185, my 1961 B95F has the same last 4 digits. It was originally sold to Bellevue Washington and now resides in Southern Alberta Canada. Here she is at a car show 2 years ago with 27,000 miles on her.
