Roadside Attractions

While visiting the Iowa 80 truck stop I took a moment to cruise the parking lots full of hundreds of trucks. While many rigs were the typical soulless OTR fleet trucks there were a few worth noting, or more specifically their loads.

While that 745C has big tires there was a truck carrying a set for an even bigger dump truck.

A truck that probably is based around this frame.

On the way out to the truck stop I passed by a closed weigh station that had a fully assembled dump truck of this size on a lowbed. I made a note to stop on the way back but it was gone when I returned two hours later. I never would have figured that it would hit the road during the day but what do I know about heavy haul.
