Forward mixer


Recommended Posts

Chassis would be strong enough I think cab redesign, power pac location and AWD conversion would probably make it to expensive. Probably be easier to bring back the  MACK HMM with modern drive train.    Paull

LE wouldn't work well. The mixer chassis originally used a Fuller auto shift. Allison would not favor the application. Original set up was an Oshkosh Truck Chassis. They did not use mack diffs, top load is an issue. Full wheel drive would be a whole new issue.

That was the 90's MACK FDM  which was a MACK Oshkosh unit and also a Center cab,  the HMM  MACK was based on the DMM chassis with the front axle moved forward and the cab mods. Production ran from 1973 to 1979 between users wanting conventional mixers and a law suit over patent infringement ended production

Just to keep things clear, The Mack model FDM was based on a Savage Manufacturing design.........Mack purchased Savage in 1989.

Fast forward to 1998, Mack signed an agreement with Oshkosh to sell a Mack-powered variant of the S-Series called the FCM. Many here saw it at the 1999 MATS in Louisville. Volvo cancelled the program when it acquired Mack in 2000, before the effort could take off.
