I've never seen a single axle Mack with the offset cab.

Can damn near do driveways with that shorty...

12000 lb front end on it has no problem with the plow and with the boat anchor of a motor in the front it goes through anything with out getting pushed around. The truck turns real tight and visibility is real good with the short nose

nothing like a mack those U models where the shortest ones mack made . too bad they don't make them like that anymore. seams like they make just one kind today and that's it the cabs are bigger than the bodies LOL when you look at them no more smaller ones that are Heavy Duty.

are you able to fit it in your garage door does not look high enough??

Nice to be able to park right at your house like that you must have good neighbors.

thanks for the comments. The truck just has a 237 with a 5 speed . I have to let a little air out of the front tires to get it in it misses by 2" .We where there before the neighbors where there but we try to help them out when we can and try not to make a lot of noise.

that's a sweet looking truck!
What do you use that truck for other than plowing? How many tons/yards can it hold?

With a 12k front he's probably tagged for 33K, guessing it holds just over 8 ton. How close am I?

The bed looks really short in the pictures, can it hold 10 tons of material?
I only ask because where I work has the same exact setup but in an International model, I think our bed is just a tiny bit bigger and it's heaped right up with 10 tons of material, tarped over of course.
