Paging Jdiesel25.

 

A few guys on a Facebook group have been posting some killer B models you must have acquired at some point.  I recognized your trucks in the background of one of the pics.  Post up some more pics and info!

Was not able to get the whole truck, two DM Concrete Agitator Trucks. They have 4 of these, and a grown in Steel Nose DM in Huntingdon Valley. I though they sold these trucks.

I don't think I ever seen that one DDD,but yet again Tri-Axle RD's are quite common around here. Could be Nello Construction, or Molly Construction, they both have red trucks. I hope your trip was fun in Philly, and you happen to check out all of the construction going on in the city.

Phila truck,next time you're in their yard see if they still have any of their BE-10B's left.I know they had either a old A or D model in the quarry up state.

AEL Contractors. I always enjoy my time in Philly. The Reading Terminal Market left me too full to do any serious exploring. B)

Got ya DDD, next time you are in Philly, message me, and I will let you know of any big construction sites to check out. Like I said lots of work going on in the city.

Mike D, I think the smallest crane JDM has at their yard is a Link-Belt LS58, you can see it in the background of some of my pics with the cab door open. I always thought they had Larger B & E cranes, but they do use smaller cranes at their quarries as "Skull-Crackers". They use a weight to crush rocks so they can be picked up with a loader. Most of these types of cranes are parked. The only older cranes they use are Draglines at their sand pits.

AEL is just a single truck.  Always see him working with small contractors building houses in and around the city.

 

Next time you're around philly, check out the 95 widening project from 676 all the way up to Cottman Ave.  Plenty of Mack action.  Coolest thing you'll see from the company I work for is our 77 R wearing original paint and pinstripes pulling trailers of rebar to the cranes.

 

I have our Superliner and the boom truck down at the airport on site.  I put so much wax on them but they're getting coated in dust and bird crap :rolleyes:

The newer Granites seem to have longer hoods than the originals.

Bigger cabs too.

 

AP are working on the Philly airport with us right now.  The last I saw those steel nose DMs, they were in a plow train pushing snow down broad street in south philly.  Probably about 3 years ago now.
