  • The Mack Auxiliary Power Truck has at different times been used to depict different types of vehicles, including a dedicated auxiliary power truck (providing electrical, pneumatic, or other power) and a heavy rescue. As in the real world, these roles can overlap, and some versions of this model allude to both roles.
  • This diecast model features a working leaf-spring suspension in the shape of a metal bar holding both axles, which can be seen trough the window
