james j neiweem Posted September 4, 2009 Share Posted September 4, 2009 There have been quite a few comments about Mack getting the volvo cab and that being the straw that breaks the camels back as far as volvo and Mack being the same. As far as cabs go I believe both volvo and Mack use cabs built by Mayflower.When the cab contract comes to an end I guess they will probably choose the best one or an entirely new cab. In years gone by International FWD HendricksonSicard and others all used the same cab. This cab was usually refered to as the International cab but actually it was built by Chicago manufacturing. The B model cab was also built by Chicago manufacturing. Actually the B model cab was very similar to Reo and KB Internationals.The LT and H model were very similar. If you look at the B-model integral sleepers it looks like the back end of an H-model incorpotated into the front end of the B model. Cabs being built by third parties is nothing new.
