    075 We have a couple SPR 570's in trucks (down to only one now) and cant get anything for parts now Brake drums are 2,000 bones apiece and you have to pay for a run of 50. They wont cast any less. With the 121,s we cant get tubes or flaps anymore. Bridgestone and Michelin have both stopped making them. We HAD a couple more P16's with SPR's in them but just sold them to buy more little trucks. Seems western fp is bound and determined to get rid of all big trucks !!! Have to laugh because it sure bodes well in my favor, but we all saw what happened over the last 20 years with getting rid of the big ones. I think we have maybe one more good garage sale left and that will pretty well do it!

    this one shows the slope a little better. Truck got hung up in the loop, loader tried walking around to lift him off , didn't realize the slope was there ( it was night ), started to slide and went over.

    So I came across this picture on the net:eek:, and wanted to see what feedback there is. Is it real, photoshop, or a staged scene for a movie:confused:?

    I just don't see how it could be real, but then again, ......

    Jeet Sangara , Pour Rich Bennett Trucking . I know this happened at Timberwest HBO , on an adverse grade pulling up from a crossing of Bear Creek between Garbage Cr. M/L and Dent Cr. M/L . Not sure why , but an Off Highway Timberwest P-16 preloader was pulling this Pacific Highway Truck up the grade . For what ever reason the Highway Truck got pulled off the road on an inside corner . scan59.jpg scan60.jpg scan61.jpg scan62.jpg scan63.jpg
