Timber Trucking in the Black Forest with the Scania V8


Recommended Posts

Scania Group Press Release  /  August 23, 2018

Waking up at four o'clock most of the time, owner-driver Dennis Piltz's workdays take him into the heart of Germany's Black Forest, where he transports long log timber with his Scania R 580 V8, equipped with a DOLL superstructure and self-steering trailer. The configuration permits log lengths of up to 21.5 metres, with a total length of 27 metres.

The best part about the job? "The whole package. It's the best job in the world and I wouldn't want to do anything else," he says.

The throb and power of the Mack-Scania V8.....it's better than sex.

B.C., am I right or wrong?

Yeah-but why is the truck carrying about a third of a load??😎  Kevin you must have some good pix of those RD-800's up in Maine.  I always wondered why they did not roll over the minute they took an turn.
