The 2013 Capitol Christmas Tree is making its cross-country journey from the Colville National Forest near Usk, Wash., to the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol on a 2014 MACK Pinnacle Axle Back model. The tractor and a customized trailer carrying the 88-ft. Engelmann Spruce will make 24 stops in cities nationwide along the way.
The Mack Pinnacle model for the special trip is adorned with a custom-designed decal featuring a bulldog pulling a Christmas tree toward Washington, D.C. The tractor is equipped with the MACK mDRIVE automated manual transmission and the MACK Twin Y air suspension system.
Mack Trucks has been a sponsor of the Capitol Christmas tree tour several times during the last few years. In addition to the truck hauling this year’s tree, Mack is also providing a second Pinnacle model to haul companion trees that will decorate other parts of the U.S. Capitol.
