Perfect combination you have there. Mack and Holmes. That 1701 will be a workhorse as is the 750. Keep us posted on your project. Thats gonna be a real nice truck when you are done. Good luck with it. Show us some pics of that fine lookin single axle too. Take care.
One mean lookin' wrecker!!! A true powerhouse! Nice! wanna see some good action shots next!
Thats pretty cool. What are you gonna do with the 750? Make a winching truck???
Seems only fitting I should post these to show where the journey for the 1701 began.....
Ken, Thanks for the pix I will add them to my album . Your right about where the jouny started ..lol . Thanks for everything ,you were great to deal with. I will keep you up dated..Thanks Paul
what kind of bracing is under the floor were the base of the hyd cyls are???? just wondering my 750 had none when we built our 750 conversion,just trying to save you guys some hassle in the long run.. her is a pic of the box bracing we put under our floor for the cyls, good luck keep up the good work looks sweet............... daryl
When we built this truck we used a 6x4 sub frame from the zack lift to were the mast bolts on. When we put the 1701 on we cut the floor away and built a surport box for the cyl. shoe out of 4x4 that lays across sub frame with a 1/4" plate across the top. very over kill , but I like it...Thanks Paul
thats what im talkin about overkill all the way, keep the pics coming,i considered buying that bed hope you have good luck with it ken seems to be a straight shooter................daryl
nice truck. hard to beat a mack and a holmes. thanks for posting. keep us posted

An old Marcells truck,,I knew that unit looked familiar,,nice looking Mack,,looks like a fairly simple swap.
did the boltholes in the truck frame correspond between the 750 & 1701 that is one fine looking mack what are its specs ? thank you
I have used both ,, your going to love the 1701 , 750's are great but just hard to beat a 1701, I like mine much better than my 1030 I had
Looks Like that Ole Dog is Getting a New Bone !!! Very Nice Upgrade ..... Can't Wait to see it Completed. I only Hope to do the Same to Ours Someday ! Nice Pics. - Keep Em Coming ..... Tim
