Paystar 5900i logger

Cookson Motors from Penticton has this new HX in town trying to get a sale or 2.  Looks like the tire shop or tire man will be busy.

That's not an HX Hanky. It's the outgoing Paystar 5900i.

No problem. You probably were just thinking HX after we were just talking about them, LOL.

I going to miss the Paystar style interior.

Sharp catch! Do they run those as drawbar/truck-trailer setups or is the trailer unit mounted to the body on the truck?

Jon,
 You will see the pintle arm and pin straight up between the stacks, that four axle unit
is lifted off and set behind to hook up. there are automated units also, not so much here (Canada) as the UK.

That would be quite the unit to run around Hankys Region.

Not to be taken lightly...............(hope that is found funny!!!!)

Legal highway weight before permits (if allowed?) 63.5 Mt., 139,900Lbs.

Off road..........Wood Up!!!!!

Flags indicate over 8'6" bunks

-Ted

Correction, did not take into consideration the 20,ooolb front axle and flotation steers.

This would then calculate out to 67.1 Mt GVW or @147,700 lbs legal highway weight

That is a lot of jewelry to shine up (tire chains) to help harness the pucker power
come winter..

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

Here in Ontario they are making all kinds of changes because of these SPIF axle weight laws. My friend just spec'd out a new truck.
He currently has a Mack Titan, self loader truck (steer axle, lift, tandem drives and a lift at the back) and pulls a three axle pony.)

But now he had to spec out a twin steer, tri-drive Titan. I'd love to see that. It came out to $360,000!!!

He sais if you don't go twin steer tri drive, you would have to run a tandem converter dolly with a trailer, and it has to have a long spacing from the drives to the converter.
Wouldn't that be fun off road?
