Decided to put this one in its own thread as I think many of the construction guys here might be interested:

Looks like a good model. However, the super safety orange grab handles and what are a bit much. Do the safety and health folks really doubt that someone will mistake them for something else?!
Oh wait. I guess I forgot. Some people can’t figure out which restroom to use and think Tide Pods are candy!

Are you an enviromentist, or do you work for a living?

It is big truck. I wonder if there will be a limit to how big these articulated trucks will get and still be practical against the traditional two axle trucks?

Apparently,the weakest point is the articulation point.As Volvo made the first 6 wheel ADT,they obviously know how to produce the biggest.Now CAT,or BELL have to make a 60 ton,6 wheel artic.Any bigger,and it has to be rigid.

I know it actually has '6 wheels',or tyres,but,that is known as a four wheeler.The back wheels are two pieces as one piece.With two tyres,so it is not strictly a 6 wheel ADT.If they(Bell)added another axle,with one tyre on each rear axle,it would be fine.Whatever

And lets not forget the Cat D550 of the mid 80's

Why is "phonetically" spelt with a "ph"?

... It's better to be silent and thought a fool, then to speak up and remove all doubt

The complex of Newgrange was originally built between c. 3100 and 2900 BC,[2] meaning that it's aproximately 5,000 years old. According to Carbon-14 dates,[3] it is more than 500 years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, and predates Stonehenge by about 1,000 years.
