Thanks Jim, the Coronado is a good looking rig, always nice to catch a daycab Coronado.

Thanks very much Rob, I've always liked the low angle shots, I've gotten in the habit lately of putting my camera (or phone in the IH's case) on the ground for those shots.
The 379 is mighty nice, hard to beat a 379 for classic "large car" looks. :)

Love that Coronado daycab shot too but there's something about a heavy hauler carrying an off-road dump truck that always catches my eye.

Thanks Partsman, I always like seeing heavy haulers, especially hauling something interesting like those big dumps. :)

Alright, 6 days into the final month of 2019, seems like a good time for a random round.

First up, an interestingly colored Freightliner Cascadia for Keller Trucking, who're headquartered in Defiance, Ohio.


A sharp Kenworth W900L.


A cool Mack Anthem for Skyline Transportation, whose headquarters are in Knoxville, Tennessee.
I typically don't post obstructed shots, but I don't see Skyline often, and I thought the Anthem looked pretty unique.


A Mack RD.


A cool older Western Star.


A sharp Freightliner Cascadia for Bottomley Enterprises from Ennice, North Carolina.
Always good to see a stainless trailer.


A couple nice PACCAR products; a Kenworth T880 and a Peterbilt 567 for Caviness Farms Grading from Siler City, North Carolina.


A nice Western Star 4700 for the same company.


An older style Mack Granite for Riley Paving from Carthage, North Carolina.


And lastly for today, an interesting Kenworth T600 for Spivey's Garage & Wrecker from Carthage, North Carolina.

A very cool round you got going on here today, the Skyline Mack has a gritty Bulldog look to it, glad you posted it, the 3 dump trucks for the same company are sharp, and about the last one.....well, interesting.....load, truck, looks like he hooked into the dozer, pulled the fallen in barn it was in and is just dragging the whole dang show home.

Love that flattop W900, man that's a beauty. Also agree on the Skyline Mack, I'm not a fan of obstructed shots either but that one was worth it. I see them on occasion too but don't have a clean shot yet. The RD Series dump truck looks in great shape for its' age. And I agree on the T600 at the bottom, it may not be pretty but it is interesting.

Thanks guys, glad you liked them! :D

Jim, that is a crazy load behind the wrecker, it looks somewhat like a drill rig of some sort, but the panels on each side are a mystery. The whole outfit looks pretty ramshackle, honestly... ::)
Glad you liked the 3 dumps, during that particular trip I probably saw 20+ rigs for that company, mostly different colors, and all looking equally sharp.

Thanks Partsman, the W9 is a looker, don't see too many of the flattops around here. 8)
I thought the Skyline was honestly one of the more unique and odd looking rigs I've seen in a while, the paint scheme and the black grille and wheel covers make for a distinctive (if kinda ugly) look.
The T6 is somewhat like the Skyline, not pretty, but "unique" enough where you can't help but find it interesting. ::)

The Skyline Mack Anthem id very bold. The paint style remind me a little bit the paint style of the 70's and 80's.

I like seeing this fleet on the roads & I guess a lot of other folks do too judging from the replies here. Hope you don't mind if I share one I caught in Ocala FL on 10-7-19....seems they bought a lot of Anthems the past year.

R. Buron, now that you mention it, it does have an old school look to it.

Nice shot Charlie, it looks like the rig in your shot has a small solar panel mounted on top of the sleeper.
Wonder what that's for?

Anybody remember the Geico (I think) commercial with the camel?

What day is it, what day is it?...
Hump-day! ::)

So, on a cold Hump-day (Wednesday) afternoon here in North Carolina, seems like a good time for another random 10 pack.

First for today is somewhat of a carryover from the last round:
The next 4 dumps are all for Caviness Farms Grading from Siler City, North Carolina.
A Peterbilt 567.


A nice Kenworth T880.


Another Kenworth T880.


And breaking away from PACCAR products, a nice Western Star 4700.


An unidentified Sterling getting loaded by a Roadtec RX-600e cold planer.


A cool Freightliner Cascadia for Service Transportation, who're headquartered in Wallace, South Carolina.


A nice Mack Granite for GS Materials Transportation, whose headquarters are in Burlington, North Carolina.


And a group shot: 2 typically nice Peterbilt 579s for TMC, who're headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa, 2 Freightliner Cascadias, a Freightliner Columbia, and the one that I wish would've been out in front instead of mostly hidden, a Freightliner Classic.


A sharp Peterbilt 389.


And lastly, a sharp Kenworth T680 for Robbie D. Wood, whose headquarters are in Dolomite, Alabama.

Looks like Frank McNeill is getting a ride in the dump truck as a BIG man!! ::)

I like the continuation of the dump truck fleet on the start up and the line up shot is cool!!

I've seen a lot of Service Transportation trucks over the last week on 2 trips to Florida. They really have a sharp fleet. :) 8) As a matter of fact I caught that same FL Cascadia MK II (# 604) at the Sadler/Pilot in Dunn NC last week (12-4-19). :)

Nice start to a new decade, the Century is sharp, looks to have a Cascadia(?) style grille in it.

The water tower is a cool part of that shot and the FLD Classic is sharp along with the Coronado.

Jim.
