    Honestly, Greenlight is quickly becoming my favorite contemporary diecast manufacturer. Classic and contemporary cars, emergency vehicles, farm equipment, trucks of all sizes. They do a wide range of stuff, at an excellent price. Severe Duty Trucks, and the Mack license at $15 is a key example. These are just about as good as trucks costing double or more.

    I see more Granites as dump trucks more than anything else. Hopefully, at one point, they do a dump version, using the same body as the Workstar. Seems awfully odd that there is so much room between the mixer body and cab on this model.

      I saw this at a TRU a few days ago, and it took quite of bit of convincing for me to not pick it up. There is no doubt that this is an awesome model.
      Great photo!

        I compared my posted photo to pics of 1:1 mixers. I think the chute extensions are obscuring the front drum bearing block on this chassis, making the area behind the cab seem exaggerated. Thanks for commenting Cody.
