Slick looking for sure. Love those fenders. Does Catom do real heavy hauling with strings? CAW

Many axles and stingers, and jeeps on one rig. Sorry, I'm a city slicker. Please don't let you-know-who see this. I lost my head temporarily. CAW

Ken I hear the NC people do 90% of their heavy hauling with strings, that must be why we see a lot of those old style bakery string holders in the heavy haul companies in NC, you remember the bronze oval ones that hung from the ceiling with the string dangling from them so they could tie off a box of cannoli’s in record time. We here in RI however prefer to use the 50 ton lowbeds because sometimes the string was not strong enough to carry the Cat 345’s, especially while cornering.
I hope the staff at the senior center has him under 24 hour surveillance and cuts back on the Prozac he consumes, Ken maybe you check in on him. STRINGS?????🤪🤪🤪🤪🤯

Very nice truck.Like all that chrome,love the look of that catwalk,and stuff,behind the cab.Do the curves make a very big difference,in fuel consumption?Looking at the first pic,the black truck looks way better than the red and white one.

Ken also I believe down in NC the other 10% of heavy hauling is done with rubber bands which allows the real heavy equipment a little bit of play while taking sharp corners. I think the State Police would prefer them doubling up with the rubber bands with any equipment over 115,000lbs. I have to give Q a call to see how they haul the 657G scrapers, I’m thinking a combination of the string and rubber bands, maybe he could get us some pictures.
