Are these Mack rears?


Recommended Posts

A lot of gas company's had them either over or under the shaft system. I talk to a few people that had them and it wasn't a good out come  when the leafs break at the center bolt they turn in to a catilpolt  flipping or crashing the unit Ive change a lot and wouldn't put them on gas trailers and keep them on TB&A box's .

Blackdog is  talking oil industry.  TBA was "tire,batteries.accessories.  It also  included case goods oil in qts, drums 55 gal and kegs -120 pd gear lube,grease etc.  The industry -the majors that is-first gave up on TBA and then the box fleets just handled lubes.

The suspension in question rode better than the camelback set-up but wasn't nearly as strong. If you broke a leaf on camelback you could still safely drive to get it repaired but not the underslung ones. My father had an underslung break a leaf while loaded with a bulk tanker on I-80 many years ago and sure enough she rolled over. He survived, so did the bulk tanker except for a flattened side wall but the R was totaled.
