I hope they do the a dump truck version of the 4900.

One of the Facebook posts mentioned they have other trucks in the works for 2020.

I expect to see more information on these in the coming week, possibly IMCATS.

Also if the rumor is correct, this brand of truck has been a long time coming. Someone should have released it a long time ago. So hopefully the rumors are correct, if they are I can't wait!!!!

I wish they would also come out with the HX520 in dump truck application, this way I would't have to do all of these cab swaps. Teeth Teeth

What's left?

Maybe the new Autocar conventional?

Those International dump conversions look great. Nice work.

Cat22fan: Your trucks look terrific. I think that makes a powerful looking dump. I like the DM International HX520 with about anything. CAW

Thanks guys for the compliments on the HX520's I have converted. As for the other brand of truck. I promised that I wouldn't say anything on it. But it is a popular brand of Vocational truck.

I 'm sure this ain't it but We need more Macks, CL700s CV713s, Superliner,s RBs, RDs, anything with a bulldog on the hood.

Now working with what we have, Cat22 have you built a Sword 379 dump???

Hey Claus. No I have not made a Sword 379 Dump as of yet. Have made a few Swords T800 dumps. If I made a Pete dump truck, I would really like to do a Pete 567. Hopefully someone will come out with a 567 in the future, I am surprised someone hasn't came out with them, they would be a nice rival to the Kenworth T880.

I'm thinking its Mack. They have dual licenses in all the other scales. Why not 1/50?

Maybe a Volvo VHD, I’m sure Ken, Claus and that old bucket of bolts from NC are praying for one.
Cat22fan your conversions of the International look great.
