DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MODELS
The M917A1 and M917A1 with MCS are the same except for tailgate configuration.
The M917A2 and M917A2 with MCS are the same except for tailgate configuration.
The M917A1 and M917A2 tailgate opens from the bottom for normal dumping. Adjustment chains allow for
adjustment of tailgate opening.
The M917A1 with MCS and M917A2 with MCS tailgate has four electro-pneumatically operated gates, controlled
by a control unit mounted on the shift tower inside the cab or by a hand-held remote control that plugs into a
receptacle on either side of the MCS tailgate. This allows controlled spreading of material. The MCS tailgate also
operates as a standard tailgate, opening at the bottom.
