It's a DM800. Long mirror struts on the passenger side to get the mirror past the air cleaner because of the offset cab and the driver side fuel tank are the clues.

If you're talking about the tractor that goes over the cliff, that was a DM800.  I think in one scene you see an RD800 straight truck in the background.

RD800 with the regular centered cab.


RM 6x6 with a Set-forward front axle.  Were the state highway department trucks with the steel fenders RM's or early RD's?

That scene was shot up on the old Diamond May mine, which is about 10 minutes away from the house  8-)

Paul that's an Australian 6x6 R model. I don't think it in indeed an RM as all the RM were setback. Also the steer axle has a rather odd track width that uses inset wheels unlike the RM.
