Mackjack525's Exhaust note challenge.
The truck was due for new injectors, that's why I haven't shown this before. Too much black smoke. Truck grossing about 80 tons or 179,000 lbs. Power by Cat 3408.
Check out Mackjack525's challenge on video responses.

The side-tipper quads gross about 170 tonnes and are carting iron ore from
the smaller mines which aren't big enough yet for rail haulage.
It's only a short clip because I was trying out my new JVC GZ- EX555 HD
camera and external mic, it seems like it's not a bad camera.
Truckin' up to Darwin

Transfer-Dump Race: The Complete Run
Mark Tarascou and his Pete 359 is seen participating in a transfer-dump
competiton at the 2011 Truckin' For Kids Truck Show. Although there were a
few glitches, it was still a good show.
For those not familiar with dump trucks like these, they are set up with a
system that allows the driver to back the truck up while they are standing
behind it to make attaching the towbar easier. The driver puts the truck
in reverse gear and shuts the engine off. At the rear is a switch or a
button that is used to engage the starter motor on the engine without
starting the truck. Since the transmission is in reverse, as the starter
motor turns the engine it also turns the driveline and backs the truck up.
I'm not a trucker so I don't know what this system or technique is called,
but that is how it works. Thanks for watching. Please rate and share this
video with your friends. Shot on 9-25-11.
My brother's son came on a 11,000 km round trip in my Kenworth from Perth
WA to Melbourne VIC to Karratha WA & back to Perth.
Here's some of what we saw, including overtaking and being overtaken by
triple roadtrains, and some wide loads.
Roadtrains! CAT Power!
My truck is leaving Penong Truckstop in South Australia with a load of
off-shore drill gear ( nice light load of 10 tons on second trailer ).
Power by CAT 3408.
"B triple" with 3 trailers at WA / SA border.
A load of "Bushmaster" APCs on Kenworth T904 double road train with CAT
Australia - ROAD TRAINS parade 1
Road Trains filmati da Pasquale (castanoisabella) nel 1999 e nel 2004.

I Road Trains sono automezzi formati da un trattore stradale che traina tre
o più semirimorchi.
Questo tipo di veicolo è diffuso soltanto in Australia, dove ormai sono
diventati una caratteristica, per trasportare le merci dal nord al sud del
paese, poiché le strade sono caratterizzate da lunghi rettilinei.
Sulla Stuart Highway, direttrice nord-sud che attraversa il deserto
australiano, non vi sono limiti nell'utilizzo dei road train, e quindi
attualmente è frequente vederne l'utilizzo, spesso anche contrassegnato da
uno scarso rispetto delle norme stradali.
Tuttavia, i road train rischiano ora di subire la concorrenza di una linea
ferroviaria, che ha il vantaggio della riduzione dei costi ed ha ottime
probabilità di affermarsi, soppiantando i road train.
In Australia esiste addirittura una gara sul numero di semirimorchi
agganciati a un trattore stradale. Il record attuale è di 36 semirimorchi
Più che Bisonti della strada, li definirei Serpenti della strada!
Autotreni nel vero senso della parola.
Like big V8s? Watch this!
View from the cab of my Kenworth going from Melbourne Victoria to Karratha
WA with 46 tonnes of re-bar.
Gross train weight 77 tonnes on two 45' trailers.
My brother's son came with me on this 11,000 km round trip during the
school holidays and was the camera man.
First clip is the roundabout at Hay NSW.
Second clip going through the S - bends at Gladstone SA on the new road
Third clip the Heysen Tunnels in the Adelaide hills. We came through the
hills in the daytime so we didn't get to see any of the smic - looking
interstate trucks which come out at night.
Fourth clip the stacked up roadtrain Coolgardie WA.
Power of course is Caterpillar's 3408 18 liter V8.
Dyno'd at 550 HP at
the wheels, equates to about 600 HP at the flywheel.
