Dog bites

Deals on Wheels - - Truck Shows -

In the mod­ern his­tory of Mack trucks in this coun­try, there are two in­dis­putable facts. One, Mack has un­der­gone a life­sav­ing cul­tural rev­o­lu­tion since Volvo res­cued the fa­mous bull­dog from the edge of ex­tinc­tion. And two, the resur­gence of the iconic Su­per-Liner is the great­est suc­cess story of all Mack mod­els.

Yet as Mack’s dis­play at the Bris­bane show high­lighted, it is the Su­per-Liner’s abil­ity to be many things to many peo­ple which to­day con­sis­tently makes it one of the most pop­u­lar mod­els in the range.

Pride of place, for in­stance, was given to a heavy-duty spec re­flect­ing the model’s her­itage as a road train and heavy haulage spe­cial­ist. Right be­hind, how­ever, was a slim­line Su­per-Liner de­signed for 36-pal­let B-dou­ble work with reg­u­lar Mack buyer, Fol­low­mont Trans­port.

This is a dog which has walked the come­back trail bet­ter than most.
