I used to see a couple  of  those Marina trucks follow street sweepers and city crews around. I  think  the owner(s) got busted  in that "Operation  Silver Shovel" a few years  ago.  Al

Big surprise there most of those outfits ie  palumbo in the "buddies" club with the Chicago unions and politicians end up in prision or slapped on the hand somehow for screwing the tax payers out of millions.

Keg I, Team is the outfit I was thinking of!  My co driver drove for them! I used to haul US Mail out of the bulk mail center at exit 3, Do you remember Waite Inc or Joy Don Transport? That load of scrap in the Rossi dump would almost certainly get stuck in the tailgate! The load of untarped twigs and branches is a " load seepage" fine looking for a place to happen!

Looks like they are removing the stack for Hight reasons?... some of the cat pavers I moved had a stack with a hinge on them to lower them during transport.

No, they are just regular full fenders. They just cover the rear tires, nothing more.

The stacks are turned. put down or covered so the incoming air will not pinwheel the turbo, and it than will fail from no oil.  Paul
