Everyday Big Rigs – The Modern Fleet

Welcome to our continuing series, Every Day Big Rigs, in which we take at look at the often overlooked modern trucks that keep our world turning.

Nowadays there seems to be one default truck to purchase if you want something that is considered different or stylish, the long square nosed Peterbilt 389. I’ve seen this one around town the past week hauling used office furniture from a large commercial building.

The Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency (OCRRA) oversees all solid waste and recycling efforts in Onondaga County. They agency has two transfers stations that accept everything from household garbage to construction debris. A small fleet of trucks run between the two sites as well as the incinerator. In years past these trucks were International 2574’s and later International 7600’s. The switch was made recently to the new Kenworth T880.

This Mack Vision is at the sight of a HoJo hotel and restaurant that has been abandoned for the better part of decade if not more. For years many developers along with the local town government tried and failed again and again to develop the property. The wrecking ball finally came a calling for the old dump this past November. Progress has been slow with about half of the property being cleaned as of last week. I guess those old buildings were made tougher than they look.

The gallery below speaks for itself. The Mack Vision is owned by Auburn Crane and Rigging.
