Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) popularized the articulated hauler concept in 1966 with the birth of the 10-ton payload DR631 – fondly known as ‘Gravel Charlie'. Some 54 years later, the company is still transporting earth, gravel and a host of other materials over rough, muddy, slippery, steep or otherwise impassable terrain.

Mack Trucks announced a multi-year partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) that will see Mack donate proceeds from the sales of a limited edition production run of pink Mack Anthem diecast models. Mack made an initial donation of $10,000 to NBCF and will contribute up to $25,000 more over the next two years as sales of the unique diecast models continue.

GOMACO Corporation, for the first time in the company's 55-year history, is offering diecast models for sale, exclusively at www.gomaco.com/models. The first two GOMACO concrete slipform pavers chosen to be diecast are the three-track Xtreme Commander IIIx curb and gutter machine and the four-track GP4 slipform paver.
