You can't get much more "vocational" than a garbage truck.

This new unit was parked at the Mack dealer in Pittsburgh back on 12/29/06.  You almost never this setup around here as most trucks are small cab-forwards, and most of those are front loading.  The City of Pittsburgh still uses the rear loading units though.

When I was growing up, R models ruled the road as far as garbage trucks.  My father was driving one when I was born and that is where my love of Mack's came from.  I wish the Granite would take over that role...but that is only a dream.  Nice pics guys.

Spotted a couple of garbage trucks at an equipment dealer in Farmingdale NJ today and thought i'd add them to this thread as my contribution.

I know, I know, I'm working on it.

Here is me and another driver in front of an older 320 with a Maxon Front Loader Body.  It was just out of the paint shop when this was taken. That day the smell was awful as the paint on the exhaust system burnt off.
