Around my parts (central CT) F&F Concrete used to run B-model tandem dumps and mixers, then when they went to Advance front-dischargers they got 2 Superliner tractors to haul in sand and gravel. I believe they caught fire one day and now they have 4 Granite triaxles that run a 85-90 mile round trip to get sand.

Mastrobattisto, Manafort Brothers, Gerber Construction, H.I Stone & Son, Arborio, Empire Paving, Martin Laviero, and Mizzy Construction have been majority Mack fleets. Tomasso/Tilcon, Aiudi/Windham Materials, and Suzio have been going to the dark side. A.I. Savin and later Savin Brothers/Edward Balf/Capitol Pipe/Roger Sherman were all Mack before being one of the first to go to KW in the 70s. Arute Brothers, White Oak, DeFelice/F.P. Ryan, and D'Addario used to run massive Mack fleets when they were around.

F&F was never a company for maintenance. All their superliners were at a trailer dealership for sale and were very very rough. If it could be fixed every way except the right way they did it. I know 2 of the granites were a mack for sale or got taken back and they needed work.

Gless Bros trucking in Blue Grass Iowa began in the 40s with diamond ts and whatever. Bill Gless (my grandfather) bought his first R model in the laye 60s. Painted it red on bottom and white above the hood ridge. After that, every new truck was a mack. Company was sold a few years back and a hundref or so Macks were traded out gor freightliners. Pretty sure the new owner had his own dealership.

O&G Industries was an all Mack fleet with some A-cars, Fords and Sterlings. Some how Mack pissed them off over some stupid calander issue featuring Hi Ho dual steer HMMs( I think) featured in the calander instead of O&G twin steer Mack's. O&G is all KW now with a few Cat 660's. They may still have some Mack yard trucks. This also filtered down to Rawson trucking who used to be Mack but now are KW. Manafort used to be all Mack but now have switched to KW. Gateway industries used to be all Mack but now are mostly Peterbilt. They do have a couple of new Mack Granite dumps. Cherry Hill Construction has switched from Mack to Pete. They still have a couple of legacy Granites. American Industries was a Mack fleet and then switched to KW. Now they are back to Mack Granites for dumps  and KW and Mack for lowboys. Mizzy seems to still be all Mack. Herb Holden was an all Mack dump fleet but now have switched to Volvo. (Volvo eating its own)🙂

Stop & Shop and Bradlees in Ct. and Mass. ran an all Mack fleet of U and some R models.

H.M.Royal, Inc. from Trenton, NJ. is a chemical distributor and used to have a total Mack fleet. They had A40, B61, F600, R600 and an MH I believe and pulled dry van and bulk tankers. They were green cabs and red frames in the early years then white cabs with blue frames later. Today they only have 1 IH straight truck for local deliveries and a few trailers for storage in their yard.

Herms trucking was another Trenton NJ. company that was mostly Macks. I remember 1 Brockway C/O, 1 Diamond T conventional and a few B61, a B67, a B75, several R600 and F600. They pulled a mix of dry vans and flatbeds.

poppop: You and I have similar memories. I grew up in Illinois but then moved east to Connecticut.

Back then I think White was just as popular as Mack.

 

Well you and Npoppop will also then remember Adley.."A Mighty Servant That Never Sleeps", Wooster, Holmes, St.Johnsbury.

Whites?-how about Shusters.

Apgar green and cream B-61's and U-600's. Red Horse Schuster was a White fleet, green coup cabs and then green 9000's. I used to live across the street from their Colchester Ct. terminal. Lots of White action. Then before going belly up they bought a bunch of brown colored U-Model Mack's and moved their terminal closer to Rt 2 and 11. Maybe Maislan bought them out.
