Petes for Pumping

Chassis/cabs for concrete pumper trucks seem to predominantly Macks, but this summer I saw a number of Peterbilts at the Simard Suspensions in Baie-St-Paul, QC  plant, fitting out with Putzmeister pumping bodies.

In amongst the Macks and other trucks, these three Petes, in factory white, were low cab forwards, with quarter windows in the cab - and you will note, all are right hand drive. This vocational model Peterbilts can also be seen in refuse collection work, but all of these were tagged for Putzmeister North America..

The one finished product was a slightly different model, without the quarter windows:

Also with a higher cab mounting height it had rounded fenders, instead of the angled ones. It was painted in the company colours of Castle Concrete Pumping Inc of Santa Rosa, CA. Castle is a rather large operation as you can see from their website:
This unit carries fleet number P42.

I imagine this rig will be trucked west, rather than traveling on its own wheels at the usually sedate speed common amongst pump trucks.
