Long haul ahead for long rig

Spotted on the waterfront today, this big Western Star has a long haul ahead.

Hauling a cable reel on nine axles to distribute the load.  

Triton Transport Ltd of Chilliwack, BC and Edmonton, AB got the job to carry cable made by Bridon  to the Jansen Mine, a potash development near Leroy, SK (east of Saskatoon and north of Regina).

See more on Triton's excellent web site:

The truck is well equipped with tire chains (slung just behind the fuel tank) and special flaps just below the door step-box, to equip it for winter driving. Hardly visible due to all the crane clutter in the background, is a very nice low profile light bar on the cab roof.
