Australian Macks


Recommended Posts

I don't think I have ever seen an MH down your way. Were they thought to be not rugged enough for your use? You Aussies sure have some nice trucks.

Mack did have a RH drive version of the MH. A business friend, who retired from Mack, talked about the strange looks he received driving the RHD MH around the Lehigh Valley. The passenger sitting in the LH seat would prop his feet up on the dash.

I too would like to see some pics of RHD MHs.

The Ultra-Liner was available in Australia from the begining of 1985. It was built on an R model chassis and was designated MHR.

From 1985 till mid 1991 there was about 250 Ultra-Liner's produced in Australia.

Around the end of 1992 or begining of 1993 the Ultra-Liner 11 was released.

These trucks had a raised cab and a setback front axle.

The Ultra-Liner 11 appear to have been mostly E7-454 powered. IDSTBC on this.

I'm not sure on production numbers or when production ceased on these Mk11's.
