Title: On the road in North Dakota - updated November 28
Post by: norseman on November 16, 2007, 09:58:32 AM
Thought I'd give you some more "on the road" pics tonight - from North Dakota.

You can go across that state and see all the same scenery, but you usually never see the same truck, unless swifty is in town.

Excellent photos, thanks for sharing.

Thanks for commenting, glad you liked 'em!  :-) You're right about the scenery being the same over most of the state, but I have to mention that the badlands areas in the western part, along the Little Missouri River (especially the Theodore Roosevelt NP and Little Missouri State Park), do stand out, and I really loved the scenery in this part of the state. As for the flat parts, yeah, they do tend to get a little monotonous, even for me, who normally love that kind of scenery...  :roll:

Ah yes, TR NP is very nice, we went up there when we were vacationing a few years back, had that very nice dinner and then went down and watched the play, it is a must see to anyone who is passing by, the dinner was incredible.

Wow Jan, all great catches, might be my favorite set yet! Nice catch on the 830 and the VHDs. I finally saw one in person other day and they're actually pretty impressive for what they are.

Great shots, Jan.  That "interesting load" appears to be the rear end and hubs out of a Cat off-road dump, probably a 797, the biggest one they make, and judging from the trailer an overweight load all by itself.

In 2005, I visited a coal mine in West Virginia where they had 10 777 haulers operating and an 11th was being assembled.  It takes 2 crews, one to assemble the truck and one to assemble the body

Didn't see the play or have the dinner, most of the touristy stuff was closed for the season down in Medora, but we still got to see the scenery, which was what we came for. Also got to see a lot of bison really up close, as they were crossing the road at one point there in the park, and they came over to sniff on the Cadillac.  :roll:

Thanks, Jesse, I will post a few more from ND later today, hope you'll like those, too. I agree, VHDs do look impressive, I saw a few at a couple of Volvo dealers along the way on my trip.

More great shots Jan.
Thanks, Ryan.  :-)

Thanks, Gary, and thanks a lot for more interesting info! Rear and and hubs out of a Cat 797, how cool is that!  :wink: I saw a few of those big dump rigs work at one of the copper mines up in Butte, MT, but think they were Euclids or, hm, at least something else, not Cats... Pretty impressive machines for sure!  :wink:

Excellent photos Jan.

If my dad would have seen that hay hauler he would have had a fit, too big, and cant get as much hay on a trailer, and you cant see out of the mirrors. I do believe hayrunner will agree with me here.

Thanks, Nate! As for that hay hauler, I was a little skeptical to the legality of that setup myself, but it does look like the trailer has been specially built to haul a load like that... Look at the sides there, it has supports for the bales, and also at the front there, the frame has been extended upwards to cover that top bale as well... You suppose they may have some special local exceptions up there in North Dakota?

Well whatever he's doing I wouldn't want to take that on a 600 mile trip or more, but I imagine he's probably going from the field to a local farm or even the owners barn to put away the bails.

Nice shots! I think I like the two 379's pulling the spread axle reefer trailers. That Freightliner Classic is sharp too.

Jan,

I know this is old but I think it's the arm of a large wheel loader like the Cat 994D or something similar.

A few more "on the road" pics from North Dakota... Hope you guys aren't tired of these "on the road" shots yet...  :roll:

  • Pete 359 with a slightly oversize load... If you look closely, you can see another rig with the same load going the other way.  :roll:
  • Pretty brutal looking KW. What's the type designation of this rig?
  • A couple of interesting looking Pete 362 twin steers. I assume these, as well as the KW above, are operated by some oil company?

Hello Jan,

My first comment on your "vacation" topics!!!
That blue Peterbilt 379 with walking floor trailer is hauling potatos or other agriculture products!!!
Those trailers are also build by Floor in Wijchen, Holland (The FTF-Factory) and a big company (Butter-Transport) has a whole fleet of those ones.
The US-trailers (If I read well Trail King) can be build "under license" of Floor, but I am not sure about that!!!
Those walking-floor trailers are used for agriculture products for the reason they don't damage the load!!! Sugar beets or grain you can dump, potatos, unions or others you can't!!! They would be "squeezed" into pieces!!!
For those "special loads" (the Caterpillar "pieces"), pitty you didn't see the "complete" machine, but still very impressive!!!
That military CCC was a real fantastic catch!!! I have seen some in Germany but they are still very rare!!!
Greetings,

Leo
