The "Big Mack" 5-Ton Grip Truck

Lowing Light & Grip is proud to announce the availability of our 5-ton grip truck. We just call it "Big Mack". Big Mack is fully equipped for smaller features and commercial productions with tungsten lighting, grip equipment, expendables and more.

The truck is a 1995 Mack Mid-Liner Model MS200P chassis powered by a Renault diesel 6-cylinder engine. The Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) is 25,000 pounds allocated to 7,500 pounds on the front axle and 17,500 pounds on the rear axel. The truck features rear air suspension and air brakes in front and rear. Because of the air brakes, we absolutely require a properly trained, approved, and authorized driver for any rental of this truck.

The truck's cargo box is an 8-foot, 3-inch high-by-wide, 20-foot and 6 inches long fiberglass box made by River City Body. It features five exterior entry points plus the rear rolling door. The rear door features a full-sized Leyman aluminum lift gate measuring 8 feet wide and 7 feet, 3 inches long. Under the cargo box are four full-sized buddy boxes for storage of shot bags and power distribution cables. In-frame storage accessible under the rear door allows for easy access to six sections of standard dolly track, speedrail pieces, and frames up to 20-foot sizes. The top of the box has a solid piece of aluminum 8 feet wide by 6 feet long accessible by a side ladder.

The interior of the cargo box is lit by compact and standard fluorescent lighting. It has Edison outlets for charging and testing. These are powered by a 600 Amp, 12 Volt gel battery pack controlled by a 2K ProSine true sine wave inverter and charger system.
