    The Grader had a chain on, just in case. A bit further on, the old gel started to throw water out the exhaust pipe onto the roof. I nearly jumped out.
    Had a good laugh a bit later on.

    Does that tray slide out as well? Looks like a pretty steep angle as it is now.

    nice beat up.


    isn't funny how that when cars are caught speeding its blatant revenue raising, but when trucks are caught speeding, they should have the book thrown at them as they are menaces to society!

    1700 in a year! they really must be struggling to find stuff to write about!

    This who frequent the truck thread on aff may have seen me post this over there.

    The newest truck for one of the guys I load I nearly every day.

    Big stainless bill for this sucker lol, won trophies before it had done its first paying load. I think it picked up 3-4 wins at the casino truck show last weekend.

    It would do my head in working a truck like that, you'd spend more time cleaning it than working it.

    Yeah, I had to chuck some packs of steel on it today, it now has some fairly decent scratches on the inside of the trailer.
    Trailer is less than six months, trucks in its first week of working.
    Driver is pretty relaxed about it, he knows scratches in the trailer are unavoidable, as long as I don't mark the outside he's happy lol.
    I was tempted to get another pic of it today, drove through rain and roadworks last night and it's certainly not shiny anymore.
