I seems to recall a few years back they said all the Macks would be sold out by late 2019. And yet they is still going. Were there some problems with the replacement vehicles ?

After the 6x6 macks ,the army got a lot of standard commercial models with long trays and tippers......The 6x6 Macks wernt much good,very long turning circle and too heavy on the front.....Typical Australian Army,they were designed and tested with 18.00 tyres,then economy took over and they had to be fitted with 12.00x20 standard tyres ....which meant the front wheels would sink in to nay surface but roadway.....Someone says there are some old 4x4 ACCOs at the Bandiana disposal area,haveny come up for sale tho.

Cupla handy trailers up for grabs too.
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

Some Accos went through the sales a month or so back.

Re the 6x6 Macks. I seen a still in Mil service re-fueler version getting serviced out Archerfield way a few weeks back. So they is still going.

Wonder where the ACCO s came from....possibly from a collection somewhere ...typical army to sell vehicles set aside for museums etc when they have an economy drive..............there is also a Scammel Contractor and some ACCO/F1 6x6 tippers coming up at Thurgowa,...dunno where that is.
