Looks to be chain drive. Nice tow hook in front. When Mack's competed in the west coast logging industry even though they were an predominantly midwest and east coast truck

Yes all some EQ's were chain drives mainly for logging and oil field work.  Paul

Buddy has one, (1948 EQ) in Texas and when I drove it I didn't notice any chains or sprockets. In fact it looked just like a dual reduction Mack differential to me.

Some EQ's may have been chain drive but the vast majority of the over 10,000 built were regular shaft drive.

The ES (75 built) and the ER (359 built) were chain drive.  The ES and ER were later superseded by the chain drive Mack FP.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.
