Some newer logging trucks

Recommended Posts

Here's a few more pics of some coastal trucks, the first one from Husby Forest Products is a Mack, maybe someone knows more about the model. The next one looks like it's probably a KW, don't know any more, looks like it might be headed to a highway though, smaller load, on second thought- maybe not? The last one is a double trailer setup, really not sure what it is, it could be a Hayes ?? Some outfits ran rigs like this with up to 4 loads behind, almost like a road train in OZ, I don't think I'd want to go down any main with one of them although a lot of those roads are better than a lot of our highways, good grades & curves, very well built & maintained. In the southern Interior here I've noticed that the US based mills build a LOT better roads than the BC outfits, they are very well looked after summer & winter. Weyerhauser in Okanogan Falls has several big sand/plow trucks & those roads are looked after much better than MOST of the main highways, the trucks don't even need chains in the winter 95% of the time. Pope & Talbot out of Midway is the same with their roads. Russ B)

At first glance one would say that the yellow Mack is a DM800 (could not be R series, they do not have offset cab, U series did, but they were primarily OTR tractors), but upon a closer look one sees that it has the M-series off-highway cab. So it is not a DM800. I believe it is one of the smaller M-series off-highway models (except it has tandem rear axle, which they did not have). Is probably a special-built rig

Not sure about the second one, but don't think it's a Kenworth . It appears to have several vertical rectangular louvers along the sides of the hood, which I don't recall ever having seen on a Kenworth.

The black and white photo I believe is a Western Star.

With the exception of the Mack, which I am an expert on, the other two are just guesses because the pictures are too small and lacking in detail to allow one to identify them with any certainty.

The truck is a Kenworth, Southwest Forest Ind

had a fleet of them. Besides the louvered hood

the top of the cab was 1/4 inch diamond plate

steel. By the way they replaced a fleet of macks.

The KW's were custom built per order.

Thanks for info, Sawmill. I did see what looked like the K/W logo atop front of hood, but then I saw the louvers and that made me unsure. I learn something every day :)

Sawmill now the embarassing part I drove a 69or 70 mod Hayes logging truck a little. The thing I rember the most was if you set your lunch box on passenger seat you had to park and walk over and get it man that was a wide cab.

I never drove a Hayes,but seen a lot

of them on the road.

Drove a Marmon it was like a rolling

undertakers parlor.

Big ole box,tinted windows,purple tuck

and roll interior,even the sleeper.

Had a 5 and 4 with a 318 Detroit,300

inch wheelbase about half of that was

hood. A real nifty city hauler with a 45

foot trailer. <_<<_<
