It appears that Western Star and KW have kicked Mack to the curb heavy and extra heavy haul applications. 

In all fairness MAck would have to have a product to offer before others could kick them to the curb. Have fear the Anthem will save Mack 😁

I was surprised when Simard built the Dramis on the Granite chassis instead of the heavier Titan. Titan was still available at the time of the test trucks being built. May have come down to chassis price. The Simard group did end up going with heavier chassis builds available from other manufacturers instead of the Granite.

They still make some with planetary axles and the simard front suspension. They are pretty much all south american exports though.
