I guess you can say the term "You can't kill a Mack" is true. Even though this RD may not be that old, 10+ years maybe, it sure outlasts most other trucks, and being owned by the DOT, it for sure takes more abuse than other companies trucks. The other week when it was snowing, me and my brother walked around my block just to take some photos of the snow we seen this heavy spec'd NYCDOT Mack RD plowing. I was surprised to see them using the RD since they usually just run the garbage trucks or the orange MR salt spreaders.
