Mack DM600 roll-off truck 11-08-15 update

Recommended Posts

The container is nearing completion. I was able to fabricate a working latch mechanism for the door. I have a set of diamond plate rear fenders (AITM) that will be used and when those are mounted, an auto tarp system will be installed. The tarp tower and gantry will be hydraulic:

It’s time to start concentrating on the rest of the truck…completing the chassis, drive train and interior or at least try to :D

The ICC bumper is now complete. As you can see, it folds up in the tilted position:
