                     This group has more of a Michigan look to it.
        Willow Creek Farms is from Ashley Mi.  This Freightliner is hauling liquid manure.  Not quite a grain hauler, but not that far of a reach either.

        Here is a Pete from Kalmbach Feeds in Upper Sandusky, Oh. Unit #22

        At last, something that looks like a grain hauler.  A nice looking Pete with a hopper.

        Here's a gem found on US-23 in Michigan.  A GMC Astro and 4-axle hopper.

                If I remember correctly, this Pete is with BDL from Ontario.

          Hunt Farms always has impressive looking equipment.

         DDW Investments, safer.gov says they have eleven trucks. One is a Pete 387, they are out of Tecumseh, Mi.       
Thanks for Looking!

        Thank you Jim!

        I imagine Kraft mac N cheese and white rice and water is on the dinner menu the month they replace those tires. ;D

That Astro is quite the catch! My favorite of the bunch is the Hunt Farms 379, though.. what a sharp truck, and that trailer sure doesn't hurt, either. ;)

        These are from Spring and Summer of this year.
        An unusual sight in Michigan. An FL Argosy for Brink Farms from Holland, Mi.

         KW T800 and hopper in Ohio.

        Endres Trucking Mack CL in Ohio.

          A nice looking IH9900i Eagle with an equally nice looking hopper. And the IH9900 is for sale!

          Pete 379 and grain wagon from Canada on I-75 in Ohio

         What I always considered to be a Transtar is actually a model 9800 with a hopper.
