    Whatever those tires go on, forget a jack, you'll need a crane.

    More welding. Adjustable wrench motor mount.

    Looks like this motor is on the ground.

    Generator maybe. Pretty clever.

    Those tires can weigh in excess of 10,000lbs each, if they are anything like the Bridgestone plant here makes. Some of the tires they make here are 25,000lbs. each....
    They can take two weeks to make one.

    Manufactured by Caterpillar, the 797F, introduced in 2008, is the latest in their range of dump trucks and with an operating weight of 687.5 tons, can carry a 400 ton payload. A 4000 horsepower four stroke diesel engine is used, which also features 20 cylinders, and is air-to-air inter-cooled. With Caterpillar priding themselves on being the only ultra-class haul truck manufacturer to use hydraulic torque converter transmissions, the 797F stands out amongst the other biggest mining dump trucks, that all utilize transmissions which are diesel-electric.

    ^^^^ I recently learned Sly and the Family Stone were a San Francisco area band. I always thought they were East Coast for some reason. I knew they played at Fillmore West and Avalon in the sixties. I saw them in Omaha in Oct. '74, great concert.

    I had a summer job during my college years at a company who built large trailers for oilfield equipment.

    When I was there they were finishing up a 32 wheel trailer and were starting to build a much bigger one than that (I don't remember how many wheels it was going to have). Both were going to Alaska.

    Much better than the cab over i had back in the early 80's. Couldn't sit a cup of coffee on the dog house or you would wear it. Back then i was hauling seafood to NYC Fulton Fish Market down on 2nd Ave 3-4 times a week. Great in tight spots. Then JB Hunt screwed up my backhauls. They hauled stuff so cheap it ran owner operators out of business with grocery chain backhauls. Back to flatbed i went. Nicer people too. Lumber yard & other places were happy to see you VS groc chain receivers who cop'd attitudes

    Well, polydactyly is oddly common in cats. Thumbs, thankfully, aren't. At least so far.

    Randy, I remember the Fulton Fish Market. I did work off and on in that area on John Street close to Pearl from 1976 forward for about 6 years. I ate at Sweets Seafood many times. It was so old it had no air conditioning - just great seafood. All of those things went when the South Street Seaport area was created. There were no people to speak of in the Financial District on the weekends in the late 70's. I think there was only one major hotel and it was on Wall Street.
