  1. Hi Scott - Mack did make the E9 electronic. It became the EA9 and was rated at 610hp - a friend of mine has a Titan with the EA9-610 V8 in it. The last EA9 was made in 1999 (I think)
  2. The arrival of the Anthem in Australia coincides with the launch of the new HD and XHD versions of the mDrive AMT - I was talking to one of the sales reps at VCV Newcastle on Facebook and the HD/XHD mDrives are equipped with low crawler ratios (one on the HD and two on the XHD). The Superliner and Titan will be the best equipped trucks for heavy haul and heavy roadtrain work with the HD and XHD mDrives
  3. Hino is interesting in their model designations across the world.... what you guys call the M-Series is called the 300 Series in Australia. Hino Truck Sales Australia have a weird and wacky number system using odd numbering for their models: 300 Series - Light Duty Rigids (available in both conventional diesel and diesel-electric Hybrid) 500 Series - Medium-Heavy Duty Rigids (available in new Standard and Wide Cabs) 700 Series - Heavy Duty Prime Mover and Rigids https://www.hino.com.au/300 https://www.hino.com.au/500 https://www.hino.com.au/700
  4. G'day Dan! Great to see a V8 ValueLiner from Australia in really good hands Stateside! It's a really cool truck and you have a one of a kind rig with a pure heart! Joe
  5. The CL was sold in Australia - it had a choice of three engines: two Mack engines (E7-454 I6 with 454hp or the E9-525 V8 with 525hp) or a Detroit Diesel Series 60. As for the CL Superliner, the only CL that got the Superliner name was the V8 powered one, if I remember correctly!
  6. Here's a R164G V8 580 (the most powerful Scania V8 built when this truck was new) with open pipes....

  8. Here's a link for your eyes - this is a bit on Tony Champion, Obby's friend who owns all the Macks pictured: http://www.primemove...e/mack-champion
  9. Mack Trucks Australia has launched the MP10 engine into the Australian market as an option on SuperLiner and Titan models - see below. Where America gets a 605hp rating, Australia receives 685hp. The last all-Mack engine was in the Titan and was the EA9-610 16 litre V8 rated at 610hp.
