A couple of Sterling car haulers
« on: July 01, 2008, 07:01:00 PM »
These two Hansen & Adkins rigs were laying over at my motel during my trip to Marion, OH. 





Note the difference in the 2 bodies.  The rig in the upper photo uses a screw system to move the ramps, the other uses the more traditional hydraulic cylinder system.
It's a Mack thing. you wouldn't understand.....

What manufacturer does Hansen & Adkins haul for?
I see there was an Allied Systems parked there too.

I was talking to the driver of the bottom rig, he said he was domiciled in Smyrna, TN, so I take it that they work for Nissan, at least at that terminal.  I had never heard of Hansen & Adkins before that day, they are based in Signal Hill, CA.

The Allied rig had a load of Nissans.

The Allied truck uses a system of ropes and long 4"x4"'s and anything else that laying around, except for the driver, who is opperated by the screw system.
