Outback Mack pulls crowd
train side-tippers which undertake haulage for road projects for the Carathool and Central Darling shires, along with the NSW Roads and Maritime Service.
“It’s good work and the roads are improving. The road south from Ivanhoe to Balranald is now almost fully sealed and we now do about 50-50 off the blacktop.”
With John’s son, Mark, running his own Mack and coming on board as a partner in the family business, John reckons he might be able to wrangle a bit more time to find and restore another truck – with the stipulation it has a bulldog out the front.
“I might have a bit more time to play with the B-Model. I would like to take it to Kyabram again, and find another one to do up,” he said.
“I have always been a Mack man so I would like to do an R-Model or a cab-over Ultra-Liner – there’s not many of them about.”
BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED: The 1960 model B-61 has been lovingly brought back to glory.

She’s a bulldog – the chrome badging tells the story.
