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.
