Vac Truck Blues

With the modern age we live in I expected this truck to have a different way to let operators know when the tank was full that wasn’t a floating arrow on the side. The KISS principle in action I suppose. I had to sneak under an overpass to get this photo while avoiding a group of eagle eyed DOT workers. The camera jacked the contrast up but I like it. I may have stumbled upon this truck a few years back when it was parked on the Tracey Road Equipment lot but I can’t be sure. Click here to view from 2012 and cast your vote.

    I wot for the NYSDOT and having an identical one like this. It didn’t have the arrow on the side, instead it had an indicator light in the cab and I believe on the front controls. Nice truck with an eaton 10 speed

    And that is the same truck. They both have the 115248 serial number seen here on the door and on the license plate of the other photo.
