    Dave,
    yes on a truck, 35 ton US = 70,000 pounds capacity. The problem is the outside frame, the load would have to be spread evenly both across & length wise on the deck. It is rather easy to cut it up & make a fixed neck drop deck, with moving the beams to the center. so that the run with the same width as the rails over the tri axle suspension.

    Then make new deck side extensions & it would be able to haul the D8

    By bogie, you mean a tandem axle instead of a tri axle. If so, then NO.

    yes Loadcraft, 35 ton, outside frame. In real life if you were to load a Cat D8H on it, it would break the trailer.

    The kit is accurate & true to the late 60's - early 70's design.

    I suspect it reads 80,000 pound cap, which equals 40 ton US.

    interesting, although it is more like a 40 ton, with only 3 axles, on light weight air suspension and very small main beams.

    More pics?

    Mack engine, trans & drive axles gave you a GOLD dog.

    Any vendor engine, regardless of drive train, a Chrome dog was standard

    Now if the DM was a factory 4x2, with ONE drive axle, Then this is a DM-400T (T - tractor)

    Like Force said, square, when i ran a Mack dealership's service shop, every snow plow or RDG mixer that came in the shop with the FEPTO, the hole is always square. Factory or custom fab shop, it is just not possible to get a good seal with a round hole.

    Also, all of the units i have seen & or wrenched on, the inside of the square hole has stiffener / armor plates added. this is to protect the rad in case the FEPTO shaft fails. Works along the same idea as a drive shaft loop on a race car.

    Well if you want to make the model accurate, then you will need to fab a pass thru in the radiator for a shaft to connect the front bottom pulley to the Hydraulic pump. Keep in mind the age of the kit, the mixer was a after thought from the original version with the high side dump box.

    The complete drive connection "FEPTO" was never included in this or the Mack DM-800 mixer kit. FEPTO = Front Engine Power Take Off.

    Hope this helps,
