Tramcor Argosy Glider Truck and Trailer
« on: September 16, 2017, 11:58:06 AM »
Sure shocked me to see Tramcor get a cabover! They've had it for a year or more now and struggle to find someone wanting to drive it, but I think it's cool! Twenty six foot deck on the truck, thirty six foot trailer, can gross 117,000 pounds. 6NZ Cat in it too.
Class...you either have it, or you don't.

Nobody wants to drive a cabover doing local work, climbing in and out all the time. Truck and trailer flatbeds are also a lot of work to secure the load on two separate decks. This truck also does runs up to Montana. That's why they got a cabover...their conventional truck and trailer sets don't have room for a sleeper.

That is nice! I like the color scheme too. What do they haul?

Most of their truck and trailer sets haul brick locally, this one has been hauling precast pipe and palletized salt lately. Can't remember what they go to Montana with.

OK, thanks Peterbilttrucker. We don't have setups like that around here.
