Macks move mountains

There is a major crushed rock movement underway for pier construction work on the Halifax waterfront.  Among the variety of trucks bringing the material in from Conrad's quarry in Dartmouth are tow Macks- one new and one with a few miles on the clock.

The Mack DMM 8x6 operated by Fred Dunphy Trucking is "twenty years old" according to the driver, which is pretty good for a dumper. The Beauroc body is newer, which helps the make the truck look good.

The new Mack is a Granite model with Simard Suspensions twin steer. A bit lower to the ground it has rear drive only.
