Kenworth T800-250,000 units

The Kenworth T800 has been in production since 1986 and in that time 250,000 of the model have been produced. KW has obviously struck on a winning formula - here are a few samples.
1. Earl Paddock of Stoney Creek, ON runs a fleet of T800s, with large studio sleepers. This one has a pair of General Dynamics LAVs, built in London, ON, and delivered to Halifax for shipment to Saudi Arabia.

2. BC plated T800 gets some down time in Halifax.

3. Partners Industrial Crane Rentals runs this twin steer, Simard Suspension T-800.

4. Simard has just installed a transit mixer on this T-800.

5. A T-800 boom truck is set up on a narrow downtown street in Halifax.

6. R. Slocum if Great Village, NS runs a 2004 T800 as a log truck - on and off road. Here he is salvaging rail ties in Halifax. This one has the mid-size sleeper.
