Title: Frito Lay
Post by: Jimmy B on December 28, 2008, 10:49:50 AM
Was out running errands Saturday and visited some of my spots where I want to catch trucks that are on my want list. Was rewarded by finding this Frito Lay combination which runs out of Utah. Thought I'd share it on Hanks...

Great shot Jimmy! I love Frito Lay trailers. BTW, both trailers are Kentucky-built units.
Thanks for sharing.

I didn't get out to see, but that doesn't surprise me that they are Kentucky-built seeing how Kentucky builds use to build so many bed bug trailers. These seem so close to them...

Thanks for the information.

I was going to post this in Walt's Frito-Lay thread but he'd put a date in the subject line. I enjoyed the OT comments on snake foods. As a cub scout I toured the Ganny Goose Patato Chip factory in the 1950s. It's hard to find these chips now days...

Thought I'd bring back this thread rather that start another.

I caught this International with a single pup Sat at Boomtown.

Interesting to see this white truck with the snow covered background.

The last time  i was walking the truck parking lot at the Irving Big Stop in St-Liboire I took this new Dodge Sprinter who was unloading in the back of the general store.  Quite interesting graphic on his sides.

They have 2 or 3 of the Sprinters at the Sparks facility.  I'll have to poke around the archives and find a shot.

Eureka!

I caught these back in April, I had to poke around the virtiual archives to find them. 

From the dual plates on the Sprinter I'm guessing it draws the longest routes into Rural CA.

Couldn't pass up the chance at some humor! I don't know how it is now, but up until recently, last year or so, this distribution center got loads from Utah and California here in Sparks. In passing the hotel where they stay, I've not seen on of their Argosys. So good catch. The other day caught one of their used drop fram trailers going by, was thinking about posting it in the trailer section for JLB.

Hopefully you'll have some time to spend on the left coast next trip.

Jan I love the Argosy daycab u caught, thats a first for me,  They run alot of "Small Bunk" Argosy's, International 9400"Small Bunk" sleepers, Volvo daycabs, IH 9200 daycabs, and an old WG daycab out here based out of Vancouver, WA.  I snapped a few pics of their Bobtail line at the Frito Lay Vancouver, WA plant last sunday.  Ill be back in there this sunday again.

The Volvos!!!

Last weekend, I saw two of them on the hwy 20 returning to the Levis plant. Have a look at the trailer, it is not your regular 48 or 53 footer, but two straight truck boxes piggybacked the way a container move on a chassis. The one at the front is loaded backward on the chassis and you can see its door near the truck cab. It looks like they stopped to transfer the trailer contents to the straight trucks and just interchange the boxes now. I gotta see the lift or the crane they use for these switches.

No cranes are needed. They are swap body units. On the bottom rail of each body, there are dark "squares". These "squares" are where the legs for the body are stowed when the body is loaded on a carrier. The legs simply slide out, drop down and are locked in place while the loading/unloading of the box is taking place.
To be honest, I didn't know Frito Lay had swap bodies! Good shot!

They probably have doors on both ends so they can be loaded without being removed from the chassis.  It looks like the chassis has a pintle hook on the rear, judging from the shape of the frame.

Straight van IH delivering to Wally World -Cerritos CA. Food vendors including Micky D deliver thru a side door from this alley.  Not much light and no place to park so stopped long enuff to get the shot thru the windshield--fortunately no other traffic showed up .

Was out along I-80 today for a couple of hours, and the Frito-Lay LCV is the first that I've caught on the move. Needless to say I was very happy, as a matter of fact, think it's the first action shots I've gotten of the outfit.

Got a question that has been itching at me, why do chip manufactuers, in particular Frito-Lay, use step deck trailers?  ???

A step deck van has a larger cubic feet capacity, and since a load of chips is fairly light, you can squeeze in more cases in that type of trailer.

I love that 57' Kentucky-built trailer! From this angle, I can't tell if the trailer has a deep kingpin setting or if the tractor has hiked-up fifth wheel.

Do these Frito Lay trucks with the CNG also have LNG on them? The reason I ask is I saw one the other day. It had the tank rack on the back of the cab and the thermos bottle tank on the passenger side. Just like the pics Roogie has above. Seems kind of weird that they have 2 different styles like that. Unless the LNG boils off to CNG while driving.
Title: Re: Frito Lay
Post by: IowaSuperTrucker on May 27, 2014, 07:35:24 PM
Dart Transit runs the same CNG setup....box on the back, tank on the frame.  It's merely a capacity thing.  I'm not exactly sure what the capacity is total for the tanks on back and tank on the frame. I believe Dart is trying to get 460miles a fill-up.

Bay&Bay just has the box/tanks on the back of the cab....nothing on the frame.  The account our CNG trucks are on is a lower mileage run.  Where Dart is trying to maximize miles they can run on the shift, Bay&Bay's CNG trucks are support for the customer (5 loads a shift, round trip is 50miles or so) and depending on the product, idle time is often 0%.  To get 300miles a shift is a lot.

This setup for Frito is all CNG....LNG is still pretty unpopular compared to CNG.

I have had a couple questions answered on this page. On the B-Train the tandems slide back under the trailer and there is a D.O.T. bumper on the tandems.
I see the container trailers were you can drop the two separate boxes off the one frame. One question though. Are there overhead doors on both ends of each box?
We have a Frito-Lay center in Casa Grande, Az.
