Nice ASV you got yourself. That company you are working for now seems to be pretty profitable. Gotta love that yellow iron. That new GMC service truck a few pages back is pretty sweet also. Do they run those v-box salters at the shop in all of those mack's during the winter for municipalities? You think you could get a few more pics of the shop?

Is that with an overweight permit, or can you just register the truck for what it was designed for right from the start?

The Mack superliner is sweet! My dad had one years ago, and it seem like they are super rare any more.

Yeah, my truck is good for 52,000 with no permit (determined by bridge formula) and 64,000 with my permit. The kicker is that I can even load to 60,000 and be legal because they will get me for over on a rear axle. So I rarely gross over 60,000 which is 18 Ton or less. If I get an overweight ticket I lose my permit for a year. You pay for the overweight permit, stay under your gross and they can get you for overweight! Go figure!

Nedly you would have over weight on the rears because your Mack is short if you had a Granite spec'ed truck like we have out here and run a 16'6" box there is no problems carrying 15 ton legally. There is only one Granite Mack dump in the area they overload the truck putting 17-18 ton into it.

Truck doesn't have enough power put 15 ton into it the drivers said it is like driving a truck with a 6/71 detroit. Truck is supposed to be rated at 450hp but it is far from it. They also sheered off the suspension bolts from overloading the truck.

Most dump trucks have a 222 to 234 inch wheelbase some of the older W900 Kenworths are 240 inch.

A short wheelbase Mack with camelback suspension would be a rough riding SOB.
