PACCAR - all shapes, all sizes

Pacific Car and Foundry (PACCAR) the parent  company of Kenworth and Peterbilt is well represented on the roads these days, and is expanding its range of vehicles down in to smaller sizes, in addition to providing many models in larger sized trucks.
1. This little KW is fitted with a Swenson spreader for the winter, but will likely be fitted with a dump body for the summer. It also appears to have brine or other anti-freezing liquid additive.

 2. G.A.Foss Transport of Vaughan, ON distributes petroleum products and is part of the Seaboard Harmac group of companies.
3. They have a fleet of identical spec KWs, all leased from PACCAR's leasing operation Paclease.
4. The local Peterbilt dealer has four of these big Pete 6x6s waiting delivery to the Dexter/Municipal Construction group. Built on traditional lines they have headlights mounted in the bumper to keep them closer to the ground. Compared to a recent vintage highway tractor their overall height is no greater, but there is a lot more ground clearance.
