    One of the first if not the first CL350ST had serial no. #1034. It was delivered around 1st of october 1976. It went to B.C. Mack distributer in Vancouver and was painted yellow. Cab was "CA352". Truck was delivered without watertank. I wonder who built the watertanks that were attached to CL350?

    Hi there I'm new to this site but hoping to find out some info. My Uncle drove for MacMillan Bloedel out of Menzies Bay for many years. He past away several years ago but recently his wife gave me a picture of him standing in front of his truck he drove, a Mack CL350 with H445 on it's side. It was an award he received from MacMillan Bloedel for 30 accident free years of driving. Would anyone know if this truck still exists?

    I absolutely know the name Ray Maars

    The H445 May either be at Bendickson or the truck Gord Thompson owns. I’m not positive. But I bet HDX knows.

    Ray worked with my gramps for many years at Menzies Bay Division

    I just talked to my Dad about my Uncle and that truck. He informed me that some time after the picture was taken, he rolled the truck while it was fully loaded on the last run of the day. He also said that my Uncle lost his brakes and had to whip the truck so that it would tip, before he got to a very steep part of the road. My Uncle ended up with broken ribs and wouldn't talk about for a long time. Now I'm more curious to know if the truck still exists.

    About 1977 while laid-off from my regular driving job at ERT I went to Menzies Bay to drive. The dispatcher sent me for a load with Roy Maars. I knew Roy from the golf course. He let me drive once we were loaded and I then went on an older hdx which I think was H 219. Roy was a fine gentleman.

    Olympic Forrest still have 2 of the 3 old M&B going strong. One was working further North #H200 but the other was parked in Stillwater cause of the ongoing strike. The last #H100 is used for spare parts as you can. Maybe I should post them on M&B site... 094BD402-66F8-495E-B0A1-8F59B25204A2.jpeg 331F1DBA-8B76-468C-A001-4A59F10D912F.jpeg
