Another weird one, Mack's response to the Brute, the DMM...



I drove something like that in Queensland many years ago the model was DSX811 had 250 c motor quad box heavy arse end on 24 inch rims (grader tryes) triple chassis rails and the best part air over hyd brakes they had 20 cubic metre dump bodies they were owned by Alex Tenkate in bris in the early '80s we worked them on the gateway arterial construction doing the cutting at Mt Petrie near the rifle range also drove an old R22 Euclid that had the 220 cummins removed ond a 400 big cam in it's place but that's another story Regards Peter


Is this the one you mean?



I'm also surprized no one mentioned one of these beasts:



Cheers,

T

I flew all the way to Yankee land to get you this fix.

An old Mack still hard at work in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.


This was a mean looking Pete waiting to get onto the ferry to Martha's Vineyard.


And I was amused by this prime mover parked in the middle of Boston with a bicycle at the ready.

g'day Swishy and all .. the K100 Series with ''B'' series cab (taper rail chassis) cabovers took over from the 500 Series (straight rail chassis) cabovers.....until KW decided to go back to a straight rail chassis when the improved ''C'' cabover cab emerged in the USA in about 1966

...idstbc and hope that helps.....cheers

Detective, if the K100B had the tapered rails, what was the K100A series?

Hi Fageol .. the introduction of K100 Series coincided with the inception of the ''B'' cab....up till then they were simply known as a 500 Series cabover...

...if there is a K100A series cabover, it will be a latter day designation i'm not aware of....cheers
