Mack debuted a medium heavy duty version of its Granite model on CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2011. The Granite Medium Heavy Duty (MHD) is designed to meet the needs of customers, like some municipalities, who don’t put their trucks through all the rigors Granite models can handle – customers for whom a lighter spec gets the job done.
“In the current economic environment, companies are taking an even harder look at how much truck they truly need,” said Curtis Dorwart, Mack vocational products marketing manager. “Our new Granite Medium Heavy Duty delivers just the right amount of Mack’s legendary strength, durability and reliability, along with valuable weight and cost savings.”
The Granite MHD is available in both axle-forward and axle-back configurations, is powered by a Cummins ISL9 EPA 2010-certified engine and is offered with an Eaton manual or Allison automatic transmission.
