Perdue

Couldn't find a thread for this well known company from Salisbury MD so thought i'd start one with an oddball unit i caught today on US 13 around Seaford DE. Didn't even realize what i'd caught until a few moments ago when i put todays pics up on the computer. Not the greatest photo but worth posting IMO........looks to be a FL M2 with some type of incubator trailer maybe.  :-\

When you get down around Perdue's home turf it's amazing the stuff you'll see in the area. A lot of feed grain tankers being pulled by day cabs (Macks, FLs & Volvos), even some grains boxes and a flatbed or 2. 8)

I would agree, some sort of incubator  baby chick trailer.  I took a picture of a HyLine (similar to Perdue up in Iowa) and they have a similar box truck, with the vents and whatnot.  Looks like a Moffet on the back of that trailer too!  Cool catch!

I was browsing through one of the latest editions of Transport Topics and came across this beautiful photo that to me was a trucking/private fleet history Gold Mine!

It was taken out of Transport Topics, but the source/credit came from Perdue Farms...must have been one of their stock photos.  I just had to share it.  This was more of a newer logo, but still...an awesome setup in my book.

I recall the FLDs Mike..........think I have a pic of one taken with a film camera. If I come across it i'll post it. Perdue, like most fleets, must have run COEs back in the day which would be interesting to see.

That's a great shot Ray, sharp Classic right there. How about the catches in this thread too, Perdue has always had some unique stuff over the years.
