Loggers and woodchip haulers from northern Idaho - updated
« on: December 04, 2007, 09:57:50 AM »
I found some nice looking loggers and woodchip haulers in Lewiston and Orofino, Idaho. Here are a few pics of those.

First, from Lewiston. These were found at a Kenworth dealership just north of town.

A really sweet looking old KW W900A long hood pulling a wood chip trailer, operated by Jack A. Buell of St. Maries, Idaho.



Older Western Star logger, also operated by Jack A. Buell of St. Maries, ID.


A couple of nice looking Petes, a 379 and a 359, for Miko Logging & Hauling of Lewiston, ID.


KW T800 woodchip hauler for Baker Truck Service of Grangerville, ID.


KW T800 logger, also operated by Baker Truck Service of Grangerville, ID.


Sharp KW W900B logger operated by Dave L. Cook of Lewiston, ID.


Some old IH Transtars found in a lot next to a small truckstop outside Lewiston.


A few more to come...

Great shots!
The W900B is an '08.

Thanks! And yes, there certainly are, Gerard, I never stop being amazed at all the old iron still on the road back west! Some of the old trucks do look like they're ready to be retired, though, but some look like they just got out of the factory, like this W900A!

The rest of my Idaho "forest related" pics...  :wink:

First, a few woodchip haulers found in Lewiston.
KW T800 for Excel Transport of Lewiston.


Three Freightliners for Richardson Trucking of Lewiston.
#441

#429

#443


Then, some loggers found in and around Orofino, Idaho, on the way towards Lolo Pass.
First, a sharp KW T800 operated by Galen Kuykendall of Orofino. I liked the "artwork" on the door.  :wink:


FL Classic operated by Mangum's Concrete Forming of Orofino. It looks like this company may have branched out somewhat from their original line of work...  :roll:


These older Western Stars are also operated by Mangum's Concrete Forming.

Jan,

Thanks so much for the views, this type of equipment brought back some very nice memories of running the Feather River Canyon 30 years ago. Got to know all the regulars and had lots of fun on the CB with those guys. And there was always some darn good pie and coffee at Canyon Dam, CA with the Collins Pine guys.

Cool, Jimmy, glad you liked 'em! Feather River Canyon, that's the area/road that is now Feather River Canyon National Scenic Byway, right? I hear it's a beautiful area, haven't seen it myself, but wouldn't mind to one of these days...  :wink:

Its Califonia Highway 70, it is indeed a beautiful drive. I'm going to try and get up that way one of these days during the week next year. If I do, I'll post photos...

Nice to see this series of a type of truck I have yet to see and an area I've not been to before.
