I used to drive one of these:


So my GMC 2500 feels quite small comparatively. Have driven a Liebherr 282 as well - those are terrifying, it's like driving a very, very large house with a massive deck out front.

Anebel, that's awesome! My dad & uncle are in mgmt at Cat's large engine plant. I've seen how big the block is for some of those bad boys, can't imagine standing next to or driving the finished product but would love to!

I've had a few incidents driving trucks but not too often. Pretty common in farmtown, usa. The one that sticks out in my mind was in my 1 ton quad cab,
An elderly gentleman at the bank that asked me "Does your husband know you are driving his truck?" I corrected him, let him know it was my truck and then giggled because his wife was riding in the back seat of their town car like miss daisy :)

I highly suggest anyone looking for a good paying job to get into equipment operations at a mine site. That was my favorite summer job when I was in University and that's what paid for Rowan.
The shift work is tough though!!

Lol Speed where is my trophy :P I at least expect a cake!!

Hauls dirt, if you can get the horses 20' up in the air you'd probably fit a few hundred lol

My brother Terry drives this. It's NASA's launch crawler. Has a top speed of a blazing 3 miles per hour!

Where I live women driving pickups, duallys etc is common. Now it seems it's ok for a gal to drive a highway rig but on the more local log haul, the one gal who drove got nothing but derisive comments from other log haulers. Her father owned big haulers and she later bought her own, did most of her mechanics and could change a tire. She was more capable than most of the men and a clean driving abstract to boot.
