    One of our Macks hauling a Sandvik D55 rig. 738 wasn't the regular tractor for that trailer. I need to see if I can find some photos of the big Mack we had. What a POS that thing was.

    Here's a 637E leaving the Cat dealer in Selma, CA sometime in 89. Swapped 2 worn out D's for 2 new ones that day. Wore me out.

    Up in the Andes with a 994.
    Note: There is another tractor hung on to the front of the one in the photo. You can just see the towbar.

    Same road, just a little further down The Hill. it might not look like it but that is about an 8% grade at that particular location if my memory serves me correctly. Highway B-475 from La Negra to Mina Escondida, Chile.

    That D10on the trailer really shows the size of that trailer. That drill is huge.

    That's a unique (at least to me) looking jeep under the back of the scraper. When moving the Cat 660 we used a 9 axle rig and the jeep had a cradle that the rear scraper tires set in between the axles.

    That's just an 8 tire dolly. The D&Es put 44-45K on it with a permitted max of 46,400. I helped a guy once move a 660 and he used a 16 tire basket dolly in back.
