Semi gets stuck and SOLUTION - Wind turbine tower hauling truck
Semi trailer truck, carrying giant wind turbine tower parts, gets stuck
halfway to destination. Made in Trois-Rivières (Québec, Canada) these are
destined for a windmill farm in New York State (USA). Normally these are
carried by frameless trailers with actuated rear wheels, but in this case,
someone thought regular trailers would do. How wrong they where.

Un camion reste pris dans un village du Québec, entre Trois-Rivière et
l'État de New York. Il transporte une section de mat d'une éolienne
géante vers un parc éolien du Nord des États-Unis. Ces pièces géantes
sont fabriquées par Marmen à Cap-de-La-Madeleine. Normalement ces
pièces doivent être transportées à l'aide de remorques sans châssis
qui utilisent des roues arrières pouvant être dirigées indépendamment.

1959 Kenworth 2 stick shifting practice - Part 1
When filmed this was the 3rd time driving my 1959 CC 925 Kenworth truck.
Has a 4 speed main and 3 speed auxilliary transmission and 4.10 gearing.
Engine is an NHCT 270 Cummins. Out for a short drive and to practice
shifting. Gotta learn by doing. By the time it got restored I could get
anywhere I needed to go without a lot of drama. Truck has since gone
through a significant restoration. See more recent videos to see some of
the changes. And yes I know I sucked in this video but like I said - only
the 3rd time I had ever driven it and was out for the specific purpose of
improving, started rough and got a little better but not much. Since then
much better. 2010 video.
