Hood And Engine Options


Recommended Posts

Go to the Australian Mack web site and check out the Trident. This is one bad a** looking truck.

It seems like it would be pretty simple to offer this hood(bonnet) as an option on the axle forward CH.

Also since Mack is starting to offer Cummins as an option for natural gas engines why not the diesel as well.

Some people like cummins engines and are geared up for maintenance on them etc. Volvo offers a Cummins option

why not there step child Mack. :):)

Actually the Trident is based on the Titans raised cab mounting. So in order to make a Trident one would have to get the cab mounting from a titan and remount the cab higher off the frame (and other mods). The reason they did this was because the outback is pretty much a desert. With such high heat the engine and cab would be difficult to to cool. So they raised to cab to allow for a larger radiator and allow more air circulation around the cab. Mack Australia has Three raised cab models: Titan, Superliner and Trident. All designed to keep the driver and engine cool in the high Australian heat at medium to low speeds.

But I would love to see a North American trident with the American Titan air intakes. Would make a cool severe service option for the CH.

As for Cummins We are dealing with Volvo here. They are probably upset they have to provide a Cummins in their perfect Volvo trucks. And Mack has no choice but to offer their engines.

Yep, all we have here is desert and kangaroos, you might find the hood hides a larger cooling pack as well.. and when you lift the hood then you need to move the lower guards.. and then the supports from the fuel tanks to the lower guards..Also if you moving the cab around then you might find the air intakes to the air filter might not connect...

The only cummins gas engine offered here in a Mack is the ISL in the Metroliner.. its extremely expensive, and the gas volume required for such a short range makes it suitable only in the metropolitan area if you have your own gas suppy ( Boral )

Also the Trident is placed here for Construction and line haul work, where the Titan and Superliner are Long demanding haul ( Desert )
