Volvo Dump Truck

A friend sent me this. Pretty odd. An Ontario spec VNX dump truck. I actually think it looks better than the VHD vocational model.

But it will be problematic with that T-Ride rear suspension and the Ontario mandated SPIF lift axle. Air ride works much better with the self equalizing SPIF axles.

My guess is they load it with skid steers😄

No, that's what the new Canadians order. They buy the low side boxes so the truck can't be loaded as much. They also weld steel plate from the top of the front of the box, sloped down towards the back to the floor. 

Wouldn't do you any good if you had to axle weigh though. If they just quit working cheap they wouldn't have to mess with all this.

That's a long body,I'd say 18 ft but only 3 ft high,that's only 14 yd water level..
