Mack DM

1. Construction Emma of Baie-St-Paul, QC was rebuilding this DM 4x4 July 20, 1987.

2. This is one of several 1988 Mack DMs built in Canada for export to Ghana. They were equipped with Temisko timber trailers. Pictured on the Halifax waterfront August 20, 1988.

3. The Ville de Cabano, QC ran this long hood variant, fitted with plow gear. Photo taken July 20, 1995.

4. Construction Emma of Baie-St-Paul, QC ran a fleet of DMs. This tandem dumper was also fitted for plow and wing plow. July 20, 1987.

5. Construction Emma also had this tandem short hood model set up with a fifth wheel (probably for the summer only) and plow gear. August 6, 1986.

Among the many variants of the Mack R Model cab, introduced in 1966, were the offset cab types, and among those were the Mack DMs. They had heavy metal square fenders, a big radiator with horizontal bars and big MACK letters on the rad.

The offset cab was pretty much unique to Mack. I will post the lighter U models with fibreglass hoods later on.
These 1980s models are among my favourites of the dm type.
