This is my ride most days, it was a logger in its first life since 1999, then an air lift axle was installed along with a NRC quick swap recovery unit, it has a Cummins celect plus N14 -525 engine and 18 speed, weighs 20.5 tonnes, and seen here towing another k100 and 4 axle trailer, both loaded, total weight of 65 tonnes, the victim blew his turbo and sent oil into the intercooler, luckily didnt use up all his oil

That's a pretty unique ride!

Quite a heavy duty unit.

I'm curious - what are the "bands" around the lower windshields of both trucks?

Thanks,

Paul Van Scott

They look like reading glasses!

My guess is "splatter sheild"

They are used quite extensively in the Australian outback, and roads of New Zealand because of the extra "vortice" they create around the windscreen, (windshields to us "yanks"). Really are quite effective at keeping the glass clean.

rob they are called a "stone guard" too us aussies and they protect the windscreen from unwanted rocks through the window . as you will no most cracks and chips that appear on the windscreen are on the bottom half so these are a way of preventing this.hope this helps. spud
