Western Stars - still big in Quebec

Western Stars seem to be everywhere in Quebec. Long popular in forest related work, they are now popular in the "vocational" realm, particularly for dump trucks where four axles are wanted:.
1. Ronald Savard runs this sharp twin steer WStar for Construction Eclair of La Malbaie. It runs a Gamache dump body.

2. Joceyln Harvey of La Malbaie has a large fleet, including this WStar with a lift axle and Legacé dump box.

Western Star's new 4700 model is also showing up in some numbers:
3. Simard Suspensions of Baie St-Paul had this new W4700 vocational in their yard, ready for installation of a body. Note the front bumper extension to accommodate a power take-off.

Meanwhile Truckfax has achieved some modest fame by appearing in the new Western Star vocational brochure:

To see the truck in more detail, it appears in my April 2010 Western Star coverage:
