Hanky,

Thanks for sharing.

That little tyke sitting in the fuel tank step of the 'Binder" makes the
truck look huge.

Argueing with a trucker is like wrestleing with a pig in the mud.
After a while you realize the pig is enjoying it.

These are the specs. that Mike and I could find out as of March 30, 2014.
1990 Pacific P 512 PS
35 ton end dump with Knight coal body.
Cat 3408 V8 @ 503 HP.
Allison CLBT 5960 transmission.
Rockwell FU91P front axle.
Clark BD 91,000 planetry hub reduction rear axles.
1400x25 tires and they had a 230inch wheelbase.


There were 3 of them and I think they are still in operation, 2 as dump trucks hauling around a couple of saw mills, while one has been turned into a heavy haul tractor. I am not a 100% sure on these facts though.
