LEHIGH VALLEY, Penn. — An economic slowdown may have choked North American truck sales this year, but the US Army continues to place orders with Mack Trucks.
Mack has received its third military contract this month, a US$8.6 million order for 66 Mack Granite Elite model tractors, known domestically as the Mack Granite Axle-Back.
The trucks will be delivered over the next three months, Mack announced. Earlier this month, Mack received orders for 152 Vision Elite tractors and lowboy trailers. It has also reached a deal to supply MP8 engines which will be adapted to operate on JP-8 jet fuel.
