Kenworths take the big loads

Two more Watson trucks appeared today for aircraft components, but this time it was a Freightliner COE and a Kenworth. The latter is obviously intended for some of Watson's heavier loads, so would not be challenged by the weight of its cargo on this trip - a tail piece was in a frame that created quite an overhang on the curb side.

This big KW (fleet number W3879) was built for heavier loads than this aircraft tail section.

The Freightliner COE, number W5867 has been here before and shown in these pages last year.

Another Kenworth farther along is operated by Five Star Specialized Carriers of Quispamsis, NB (near Saint John) with a Grove hydraulic crane aboard. The blue Freightliner in the background carries the jib for the crane.
 It takes a tridem tractor and four axle trailer to haul this 90 tonne capacity crane.
And as a follow up to yesterday's post on the International from Rondeau - it did not load aircraft components, but a pair of used Case wheel loaders from Holland. One unit still carries the name of Rudi Van De Sluis of Lewedorp.

Beside it is another International from Quebec, running for USA 2000.

Checking the US DoT number reveals that the truck is indeed running for Transport Michel Rondeau Inc of Lanoraie, QC, located in the heart of farming country between Montreal and Trois-Rivières.
