That's the 2nd pic I've taken of the T880 in the last month & both times it's been hemmed in by other trucks. >:( Maybe the 3rd time will be the charm. ::) As for the FL COE I was glad to see it still there after passing by that spot twice & not being able to get a shot. :)

Found these 3 beauties at a garage just down the road from a dealer in Quarryville PA today. Made the crappy trip there in the rain worthwhile. :)

 So you Guys get the rain as well thought it was only us Jocks that get it all the time.
Like the shots Charlie I like the Ford out of the three. That style of Ford looks great as a 6x4 unit with sleeper
and a Hummin Cummins in it.      Bob.

What ever happened to Storm Caps on verticle exhaust pipes?
Buckets...plastic buckets don't enhance the look of a truck.

Nobody uses them anymore Rob although I wish they would. I ordered a pair for 2 different solid waste rigs about a month ago from Napa, Napa didn't even stock them locally, had to get them out of their warehouse for the next day.

Well I guess if I can only get 1 pic on a long trip (swap to Warrenton VA) it might as well be a Mack. :) ;D


Vulcan mixer stopped for lunch at a Sheetz in Haymarket VA earlier today.

Which way did you go to Warrenton? 66/15? You missed out, there's a Vulcan plant off Wellington Rd (which runs between Manassas and Gainesville) that's running almost exclusively these massive mixer trucks.

When I saw the mixer I was hoping it was one like you posted but it turned out it wasn't. >:( :( We cut over on I-695 then down through Frederick & Leesburg.....a much more enjoyable ride than going the Beltway route. :)

Ha, yeah. Lot less traffic that route, I don't blame you. I figured these big mixers are probably more commonplace on the outskirts of the suburbs, but I'm only basing that off my experience finding them on Route 50 next to the quarry in Chantilly and at that Vulcan plant between Manassas and Gainesville. I'm sure you'll find one eventually though, just not anywhere that's already built up.

So on Friday 3-29-19 I had a surprise overnight swap out to Bedford OH. Always nice to see different scenery & catch trucks you don't get to see in your area. Many thanks to Paul Kane for info along the route and places to stop at on the way. Hope some enjoy the pics.
