Clarence sends in these shots of a three new Mack TerraPros being upfitted for plowing duties at Trius Inc. Destined for the NYC Department of Sanitation these trucks will be ready for the next big storm in the Big Apple. From the pics we can seen onboard calcium chloride tanks wedged between the cab and Hi-Way XT3 multipurpose body. You’ll also notice the trucks have devices on the side to prevent pedestrians and bicycle riders from being run over either through their own ignorance or pain bad luck. Now, here is the million dollar question. Why are the rims green on NYC Sanitation trucks. Has it always just been that way or is there a deeper meaning?
Back here in CNY this sharp looking blue Western Star 4700 was on the lot at Tracey Road Equipment. It’s obvious that Tenco equipment is the gear of choice and it has what I consider to be “euro” style fenders on the rear axle. The single side stack looks pretty cool too.
