The Mack TerraPro is considered tough, compact and efficient with the power and versatility to tackle the toughest jobs, all while keeping drivers comfortable and focused from the beginning to the end of their work day.

Built to perform in the toughest jobs with the tightest spaces, the Mack TerraPro is the refuse industry’s best-selling cabover model and is ideal for industrial and commercial applications. The TerraPro cabover has been designed with outstanding visibility. The large windshield, low profile dash, larger mirrors and an ergonomic driving position makes it easier to navigate in tight spots with precision.

Mack has been a key player in the refuse industry for decades.  For that reason, they have almost unparalleled experience in knowing how to capitalize on and boost a company’s productivity with using Mack trucks. As an example, the fuel-efficient yet high-torque Mack MP7 engine was designed to deliver faster route times and less downtime. In addition, Mack’s advanced chassis engineering enables the maximum allowable payload to be incorporated into a compact overall dimension.

The Mack TerraPro cabovers come equipped with body-ready electrical systems so the installation time of the various body options is reduced. These state-of-the-art systems also ensure quality and prevent future reliability issues. A major component that can be customized on the Mack TerraPro cabover is the axle unit; it is available in both a single and tandem configuration with multiple drive and auxiliary axle combinations available.

We are excited to introduce this extremely popular, versatile cab/chassis combination to you in our 1/87 scale product line! This is the first time a truck other than an over-the-road tractor trailer has been added to the First Gear offerings in this scale.

This particular collectible truck was initially designed to meet the requirements of a specific promotion. Therefore, this model provides a great looking replica of the real truck without all of the functioning parts. The result is a very attractive replica collectible that will be an excellent complement to the other trucks in your 1/87 scale collection.

The truck measures 4.5” long by 1.0” wide and stands 1.8” high. It features the iconic Mack® grille with many chrome accessories including the side mirrors, wheels and the infamous Bulldog hood ornament. The undercarriage features a complete drive shaft, axle and leaf spring detail, mudflaps, fuel tank, storage box, etc.
