    Great threads Hayes and all, I have no offroad logging experiences and I am really enjoying reading through. One question, you keep mentioning preloader?

    All I can say is that I'm glad I'm not the one crawling over that load with a branding hammer trying to catch each stem.

    I don't think I would want anything to do with loading or unloading those loads of bean poles . And I hope the loads are scaled by weight , could you imagine doing a manual check scale on one of those loads ?

    The Pacific is pretty damn impressive.

    Time to bump this thread. So, one day at the Port of Anchorage, working at the Crowley Terminal, I hear something unusual. I couldn’t believe my ears. Not the normal Cummins ISX or DD15 noise of the typical tractor traffic coming and going. I could smell the 2-stroke exhaust, as well. Left the warehouse to look.

    It was a buzzin’ dozen!! In a very nicely restored Pacific. No DOT numbers with a not-for-hire decal on the door. Attractive lady, riding shotgun.

    Dude stopped by to purchase a couple drums of 40wt lube oil. Total overkill, if you ask me. Lol. Very nice rig. Wasn’t very chatty. Heard he lived in the Valley. Never saw the rig again.

    After he left, I had to clean the Detroit air box slobber off the tarmac.

    When I would be in town a few years back, I recall seeing one like this, usually in traffic in the summers.
    Rare truck in this area I think.

    1988 P510 rolling across the block next Tues (5/25/21) in Chilliwack if anyone is looking for a self loader.

    Looks like a decent rig, curious to see what she brings.
