Atlantic Tiltload and Western Star

1. I caught Western Star #48 this morning delivering a vibratory roller for driveway construction in a residential neighbourhood. Those rollers are full of water, so they are heavier than they look. Even so they did not need to use the third axle on the tractor or the trailer.

2. Meanwhile sister vehicle, #88 was at Lockhart's for maintenance. It makes do with the standard tandem axle arrangement.

Atlantic Tiltload has a pretty fair fleet of Western Stars, ranging from straight trucks with tilt beds to some pretty heavy tractors. An interesting company, it has grown considerably since founded in 1992 with three tilt deck trucks. Learn why by visiting their website at:
