    The stuff I do on site with a tractor trailer dump truck the full locking rear and locked in power divider on a dash switch has gotten me out of stuff that a Mack auto power divider would never have. The mack auto power divider is great for normal dirt work and starts working before you feel the need for it. But if you do any site work in slick mud where you need to stop and start with more traction the locking rears are a huge help. You do need to know your limits. if the truck is sunk and does not want to move dont force it. get a chain. you also want to have a HD drive line for the added stress just my .02

    Do you have Mack CRD202-202-203 Tridem or a Meritor RZ166 Tridrive? Mack axle Power-Divider/Inter axle differential has automatic torque biasing and helpful for traction. In this case Inter-axle lock might suffice but Inter-Wheel diff lock will be helpful. The new Mack CRD180-180-181 Tri-Drive will have both Inter-axle and Inter-wheel lock.

    Found a 1965 triaxel B-73 with an L cab and one of these Holmes 850 setups. It’s huge. So huge it’s got a 100,000 winch on it.

    I was watching some video of my grandfather logging back after WW2, my grandfather was in the airforce in New Guiniea at Port Morsby and he was only 26 when this film was made so it would have been the late 40's or maybe early 50's at a guess My grandfather had what he always told me was a NR Mack as a log truck but in recent years I have come to believe it wasnt it was in fact a EH Mack https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.trucksplanet.com%2Fphoto%2Fmack%2Feh_eht_soft_top_cab%2Feh_eht_soft_top_cab_1.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.trucksplanet.com%2Fcatalog%2Fmodel.php%3Fid%3D480&tbnid=geASXsI45e61aM&vet=1&docid=uHSC96ZGn1gCnM&w=791&h=435&hl=en-AU&source=sh%2Fx%2Fim And another of the log trucks shown in the film was a Burma Dodge On reading about the Burma Dodge trucks in Australia it appears that Burma Dodges were rather rare in Australia They arrived after a ship was sinking off Australia and they were off loaded to Australia Dunno if you click on the photo it might take you to the information If not, theres the information bellow Burma Dodge Truck This beautifully restored Burma Dodge Truck sure has an interesting history. Burma Dodge trucks were built by Dodge in the US, for the Chinese Army, The contract was for 15,000. Production started in October 1944, and ran into early 1946. They were built right hand drive. A ship carrying a load of Burma Dodges was sinking of Australia during World War 2, some of the trucks were off loaded to Australia. This is one of them. At the Moora Working Draught Horse Muster. When I work out how I will get some video of the logging operation My family only had this video given to them in recent months and my mum found it very interesting seeing her father at such a young age and in colour as well !!! More to follow Paul

    I know this post is five years old. I just had the same exact problem on my 1994 Mack RD. After two days replacing parking brake valve on dash, relay valve on frame and troubleshooting, no results. I had no choice to search the internet. I am so lucky to of found this posted long ago. I am done replacing that double check valve and everything is back to working properly. I want to take the time now to thank Raindog. Thank you Raindog for sharing ! ....You the Man !

    another place to look ! If your wheels are steel one of your wheels may be cracked! If its the inter wheel diff it acts some what like as a posi-trac However ever a little more noticeable on dri ground !You can lock the inter axle out (MOST ) of the time, there is a switch on the dash to lock the inter axle out how ever not always some trucks were built with no lock out feature look for it on the dash!

    Really depends on what type work you plan to do. If going off road type work, get full lockers (Think soft or muddy ground) If you will be on the hard road all the time, just inter-axle will be fine
