  1. Sorry Swishy, I've seen them but never really been around them. From what I've been told , and understand it is super easy to load equipment on, because of the nice gradual incline. No change of angle with ramps on detatchables. I've heard they are a pain in the ass in muddy or icy conditions with the build up. Not sure just how they lock in place.
  2. Sorry I do not. There was so much cool "stuff" to check out, I over looked zeroing in on the JD
  3. Guess maybe he figures the ford is tough enough to not need to be inside a shop.. HA HA .. Thanks guys for the ideas of the year .
  4. I visited with the farmer who's letting us stage our stuff on his property, and he showed me around at some of his "stuff". Does any one know the year of these Ford and Chevy cab overs ?
  5. We are outa town still, only now in north central Montana. All the big OD loads will be happy when we get it done in another few months. Then it will be a bit wider and be pavement instead of gravel. Pretty much all oil field stuff going north and going south.
  6. After you get a crane to get up in there , you sure could get a view of the "seat covers" from there.
  7. Yes it is for a CAT, haul truck type I think. But maybe for a big scraper type water wagon ? One of the other guys said he'd heard the it holds 52,000 gallons ?
  8. When I am at home, I'm in the Kalispell area, about 15 miles outa town. But it seems that road construction keeps me living all over the state more than at home. This job was just east of Thompson Falls. Next week they are ready for side dumps over east, north of Galata. But that will be only 200 miles from the house. Its a big state, over 600 miles across. Some pretty country thru out , but I prefer the western part with the mountains and trees.
  9. I am not going to ever buy a thing that has the NIKE logo on it. They had a good idea for a product, to honor America on the 4th of July, and they caved in because that un-American P O S bitched about a colonial flag on the shoe...
  10. Working on a highway construction job , you get to see some interesting things, But unlike Other Dog, I am never lucky to have the camera handy when those "girls in the car" go by. But we have had a lot of big loads go thru . And there was this hippy van with flowers , rockets and half dogs on the little mud flaps. The old half dogs.
  11. On my way back to my home sweet camper home the other week, I went off the main highway to see if there was any interesting stuff in the fields. Yes there was.... A couple heel boom log loaders and a B with an L cab. A B 70 something , judging by the long hood, hanging out in the tall grass. And 2 Autocar log trucks.
  12. The Peterbuilt had a 350 cummins, 5x4 Spicer boxes , SSHD rears. Not sure how low geared they were. The road fallowed Thompson river , basically level , slightly down grade.
  13. I am sure this has been seen before. I miss placed my good photo, so I took a picture of a picture. When I was logging , I worked in areas of this private road. It was an every day thing pulling doubles or triples . This World Record load gross weight was just under 700,000 pounds. The pict doesn't show it,, there are 7 off hyway loads behind the pete. Logging has slowed from what it was , the reload at the south end of the company road is gone now. This is how it was gone in western Montana. There is a video of this record load.
