Features:

  • Compatible with the official 42078 Mack Anthem model, its MODs, C-Models and other tractors with the similar fifth wheel position and construction. 
  • Pendular suspension for different road surfaces
  • Raise and lower supports using mini Linear Actuator
  • Openable rear gate with locks (borrowed from the official A-Model's container)
  • Wheel chockers
  • Towing hitch for additional trailers and/or converter dollies.
  • The floor is as low as possible for rigid construction and given wheels size.
  • Sliding tandem axles for better weight distribution/maneuverability balance.
  • Modular building that allows to extend the semitrailer by additional sections (+12L each). See the commented steps in the building instruction.
  • The main kingpin position allows coupling with 4-axles tractors (3-axles rear tandem)
  • The secondary possible position for the kingpin for tractors with deep central fifth wheel position.
