Mack Granite rises to new heights

Posted: March 8, 2018

Mack has increased the ground clearance on axle-forward models of its Granite underbody scrapers by six inches.

The higher chassis ride height allows the scraper to move 45 degrees in both directions, offering a more versatile truck in winter and summer applications.

It means the plow can be installed without needing to move fuel tanks and exhaust aftertreatment systems. Also, the new configurations offer a shorter wheelbase to improve maneuverability and shed weight.

There’s up to 21 inches of ground clearance overall, while the first step into the cab is a maximum of 24 inches.

The Granite is available with both the MP7 and MP8 engines and the mDrive HD 14-speed automated manual transmission with creeper gears.
