Volvo Mack has already lost their heavy haul customers. No trucks and no engines. Damage is done. They didn't even want to try and compete with the North American Titan.

It was a great truck but way overpriced and no "real" sleeper options.

You did a big build there Swishy. Nice job!

What kind of work do you do with it? I see you have a winch on it.

I have found th@ the truck makers do not do a one off custom truck

 

Particularly Now when they're all Busy.

I was quoted 16-18 weeks wait on a fairly standard Mack back in Sept.

Start ticking Too many option Boxs or asking for something a bit "odd" They get a bit shirty with you for slowing the line down too much. unless of course if you want a batch of 'em....??

Nice pics. That last one is something I know....pulling the Morbark horizontal grinder around.

 

Nice truck. Does the shorter wheelbase affect your allowable gross weight like it does here? Where I am here you get punished for not having a stupid long truck.

Another great truck with a horribly failed marketing.

I'll bet Daimler would have been successful marketing the Titan.

Yep. You want the biggest condo sleeper on a Western Star or 122SD? You got it. Want it twin steer with tri-drive? No problem. Want a steel butterfly hood? Okay.

 

See how that works Volvo?
