The Sterling brand name may have returned to the pages of history but the same can not be said for many of their trucks. It doesn’t take too much effort to find one on a street near you. Here are two prime examples of Sterlings setup for heavy duty applications.
To begin, we have a 6×6 snow plow for the Town of Fenner. Check out that plow mount up front. Massive.
We also have this triaxle Sterling with a large cable spooling system on the back. This truck wears the markings of a large national electrical contractor so I can only assume this is used to string high tension lines. You’ll notice that it has three axles instead of your traditional two axles with a tag setup. Something of a strange bird here in NYS.
