Random Shots#26 Dangerous Packer

This White/GMC low entry, superwide cab, refuse packer has been prowling the streets of Halifax for a year or so, picking up restaurant waste for Gerald's Trucking. It's often found downtown early in the morning. I finally got a clear shot today.

As a White/GMC it is certainly a transition model between White and Volvo - it already has the prehensile Volvo bar, but appears to be all White otherwise. The driver's side exhaust pipe is a little unusual, and the packer body itself is relatively small. The engine is almost completely behind the cab, allowing for extra seating to carry a one, two or even three man crew.
