On the left: Mack DM 685S 6x4/2 carrier fitted with a Liebherr HTM 704 concrete mixing drum(*) (Conrad model),
On the right: Mack MR 688S 6x4/2 carrier equipped with a Putzmeister BSF 36Z concrete pump/distribution arm assembly (Conrad model).

Note (*): I doubt that Liebherr ever sold any of their "European-type" mixing drum in the States, where the market is dominated by local producers (at 2017 Conexpo, they displayed no mixing drum but one of their concrete pump instead, indicating where their interest could be).
The Putzmeister equipment is more credible on a Mack truck, as the German producer has an assembly line in US: https://putzmeister.com/web/americas/technology

Still on our road trip in the US with a pure North American pick-up/equipment trailer combination:





Ford F250-Lariat 4x4/2 double cabbed pick-up truck (Sword model) and Big Tex 3XGN 20+5 2-axle equipment trailer (HiMoBo model) loaded with a 6.48 tonnes Egin Pelican SE 4x2/2 street sweeper equipment (Conrad model)

Steve,

Pictures are far from being excellent, sorry, but I hope that they will explain the pick-up 5th wheel arrangement..
HiMoBo have added to the pick-up a removable plastic structure which fits over its rear axle: it has a small "finger" (hardly visible here) which goes into a hole of the trailer gooseneck:





As simple as that!

I hope it helps.

Guy thanks for the information and pictures, as modelmaniac said that high system is a great feature. Do you know if the trailer and fifth wheel are still available.

Steve,

The only place where I could find that equipment trailer was Fritzes Modellbörse in Germany, either solo or paired with the pick-up. I suspect that they were produced exclusively by HiMoBo for them and I didn't check if it was ever made available in the States or somewhere else.
Unfortunately, there are not for sale anymore there: https://fmb-shop.de/shop/de/search?sSearch=Himobo but as often, I suppose that more batches will be made available later. So may I recommend to visit regularly their website and check for availability.

I hope it helps.

Guy thanks for the information and link, will have to keep my eye open for one of those. The pictures of the dumps are nice as usual, I really like the look of that Diamond T.

Guy great pictures, do you have any information on the wobble wheel lowbed. Is it a custom scratch built or manufactured by a model company.

Love those two Willeme heavy haulers and the wobble wheel trailer. That Bernard is ugly though. When are you going to run out of trucks? CAW

Mammoet heavy haulage operation in South Africa.
The South African subsidiary of the famous Dutch craneage and transport company is one of the few worldwide to use Nicolas modular trailers, inherited from Frasers, a local heavy haulage company incorporated years ago. The mighty Frasers MAN 48700 8x8 tow trucks have since been replaced by newer 8x8 Titans, 4160s and 4161s road size units or 4860s equipped with wide cross-country tires.







Titan SF Actros 4860 SLT 8x8/4 ballasted tow truck (WSI model) and Nicolas R9-T180 9-line modular trailer (modified Corgi model) carrying a 94.54 tonnes Elin ???MVA-230/108.8kV transformer (WSI load).

To be continued.

Demag PR25(*) rotary drilling unit on 4x2/0 chassis (modified Gescha model) and its Demag-Pokorny SC5 DS 1-axle support air compressor (modified NZG model)







Note (*): so far, I was only able to find the tracked version of this drilling unit, named Demag CR25 (with a "C" for crawler). I am therefore looking for any information on this wheeled version produced by Gescha in the seventies and referred to by me as a PR25 (with a "P" for pneumatic) in terms of correct name, weight, capacity, etc.

Regards.
Guy
