    Reyco four spring, typical of a road tractor/dump truck conversion. Better would be walking beam Spring or rubber ride. I have had to wrest those type springs out from under loaded trucks, a Royal BIOTCH!

    Here's one of the super-crete trucks one of the big outfits around here is using... they get more every month :) in fact they are having a hard time finding drivers.

    I hadn't seen those before. Have they got any suspension other than the drop axles?

    You know... I don't know I'll have to look under one next chance I get... Oh I looked up the superdumps specs and they are supposed to be able to net 26 tons... not sure if you can do that much in washington or not cause I think... one of the drivers told me they can carry 22.... but kinda hard to remember :)

    Was gonna say at least a 14 yard. Most likely the latest version of Rubber Block beam suspension whether Hendrickson or the new AirLink set up.
