Back for more

Mack Trucks Inc., Allentown, Pa., recently introduced an axle-back version of its Granite model, the No. 1-selling heavy-duty Class 8 conventional straight truck in the U.S. The Granite Axle Back vehicle (Circle 922) gives customers an additional option. In some states and particularly in Canada, the laws governing roadway use are such that having the front axle set back makes it possible to legally carry more payload, and more payload means higher profits. The axle-back position also results in a shorter wheelbase, making it easier to maneuver around tight jobsites.
The axle-back style shares the features of the other Granite model, including a large, strong, comfortable cab with plenty of leg and belly room; best-in-class sight lines; and an ergonomically designed electronic dash, plus flexible fender extensions, halogen headlamps and stylized mirrors.
