Built in the U.S.A. with Mack’s legendary durability and reliability, as well as the latest pioneering features to improve productivity and performance, the Granite model is the jobsite standard.

“Mack is proud to have earned the trust of customers who chose the Granite model more than any other heavy-duty straight truck in 2016,” said Jonathan Randall, senior vice president of sales for Mack Trucks North America. “We look forward to continuing to meet the needs of our customers’ applications.”

Available in axle forward or axle back configurations, the versatile Mack Granite model can be spec’d for a wide variety of construction tasks, including dump and concrete mixer applications. The Granite model can also be found in the refuse segment as a rear-loader or roll off, while municipal customers depend on Granite models for plow applications. For heavy-haul or logging applications, the Granite model can be spec’d as a tractor with heavy-duty upgrades.
