Mack DM600 Dump, Rescue Job, DONE aAfter 30 Years!

Recommended Posts

This is a Mack DM600 that I started WAY back in 1987 or so. It met a severe case of builder's block, and a move to another state, and FINALLY just got done. It is finally leaving the shop to join the company fleet, as soon as the company gofer gets to the registry to get plates for her! (But of course, the guys had to put her to work around the yard waiting for the plates, so she already needs a bath!!) It is an original MPC DM600 kit, with an AMT Montone body. The engine is a Tip Turbine from a Cruiseliner kit, with appropriate mods to fit the DM cab and intake system. The chassis has had a pusher axle added, from Mo'Luminum. There are tons of little details added from the parts box, as well as piping and wiring. The dump body has had rear exhaust vents added for the exhaust heater. The chassis color is Rustoleum Red, and the green is PPG Mack 804 green. It is labeled with custom decals from Modeltruckin.com. This has been a long time coming out of the shops, but the crew is happy to have another truck added to the fleet!
