Mack’s mDRIVE HD is now engineered with two additional low gear ratios for demanding work, plus multi-speed reverse gears for increased startability, maneuverability and flexibility in low speed applications. So no matter what jobs you face, you’ve got the ability to dominate them.
With the mDRIVE automated manual transmission, there’s no clutch pedal, and the shifting is operated by intelligent electronics. Its advanced technology continuously monitors changes in grade, vehicle speed, acceleration, torque demand, weight and air resistance to increase efficiency on every drive.

Tracy Gunter Jr. and his son, Tracy Gunter III, own and operate Tracy’s Logging and T3 Chipping, continuing a family legacy that began with Tracy Gunter Sr., who worked in a sawmill. The woods are where the Gunters make their living, but it is also where they feel most at home, and they see themselves not only as loggers but also as stewards of the land.
The logging industry has changed dramatically over the years since Gunter Sr. pulled logs with a team of oxen. Now, the beasts of burden run on diesel and Gunter Jr. and Gunter III run four logging crews and two chipping crews, averaging 300 loads per week. They operate a fleet of 29 tractors, including 15 Mack® Granite® tractors.
Performance is key in their business and they are quick to point out the benefits of the Mack brand. “Mack has a reputation for being a tough truck, and we’re in a tough business,” Tracy Jr., said.
