Paystar 5000 readymix truck

12 posts in this topic

Being this is one large town to live and work in, this area is full up of International trucks being used for readymix use or whatever. This plant uses alot of Paystars in there fleet and so do alot of other plants around Boston and Providence, Rhode Island. There is a large International truck dealer in Providence and its called Coastal International, bet Bermuda Ken has seen or been in that dealership :D it is located right beside I-95

I know Wes............ <_< here the mixers are front unload OSHKOSH or ADVANCE only. No MACK. You find a few guys still running FWD and OSHKOSH rear unloads (very sharp trucks!!). But they are dying out.

No semi sized mixers around here, our 20 ton country bridges and culverts would burst!!!

Mack just sold the State of Az 54 more trucks. But here is a pic of my favorites of the fleet. A 4X4 Paystar 5000 with a Cummins M11 and a 2574 with Cummins L10

Since I don't see an Italian name on the door, I can only assume that this is some poor Anglo-Saxon guy who couldn't afford a Mack, so he had to be content with the next best thingĀ  LOL

And, speaking of which, if that white cabover isn't a Cargostar (which I doubt), then it has to be a.......Mack MR!

[Just pulling your leg, Bermuda...I like the Paystar 5000 too]

Hey WEK ya know that Boston is home of the Irish, southside is all Irish and mostly northside or so called northshore is Italian, my girlfriend is a third generation Sicilian, her grandpa came over on the big boat and they settled in East Boston but thats turned to little Puerto Rico and little Mexico and whatever non English speaking people there are. Im old English, the Hancock name is one of the oldest English names there is and half Irish so me and the woman have the nationality spat everyday, :D , the boys I work for are Italian but most of us finishers are English, Irish and French. Down south your either black or white but up here in New England its you nationality but I tell everybody Im a purebreed Kentucky cracker :lol:

Not too many paystars around here. Used to see a gree one all the time, but since I'm not out delivering all day, I haven't seen it in ages. There used to be an old White trashtruck, think it was a Road Boss??? Could always tell when that was coming as it would smoke like a pullin tractor. you could see it a mile away!

I doubt it. I'm in St. Louis. I doubt there's any concrete trucks around here from the plant you mean. Unless you consider st. louis to be local for ya. :lol:

Well, it's Audrain County concrete, but it's all owned by Warren County concrete, right there off I-70. They've got about every concrete plant from St. Louis to Jeff City. Once in a while there'll be a Warren County Concrete truck around here if one of the local ones is having problems, or if there is a large pour.

One of the local concrete outfits here has a couple of the older Paystar 5000s like the one in Hydro's pic. Most of their Paystars are newer than that, though. The outfit also has a few Fords. The other local concrete outfit runs Mack exclusively - mostly DM series, but they've added a couple of Granite series trucks lately.
