Randy: I only have the black KW. I sometimes put it with my black four axle Rogers. Boy it looks good. I think Australian trucks are insanely beautiful. European too. I don't know why we don't put more graphics and colors on our trucks. As far as that "walk-around" trailer, I would love it too, but I just love lowboys too much. How you been anyway? Haven't heard much from you lately. CAW

Hi Bruce, that's an epic load out with the LeTourneau, and the road train chart is very helpful.

Also many thanks for your help with the McAleese Brute, it is so greatly appreciated and will be a fantastic addition to the road train.

Take care and all the best down under.

Well after seeing your pictures of the LeTourneau road train, I think I might have to buy a couple of these trailers! The drake trailers and Kenworths you guys produce look absolutely gorgeous, I just haven't had he chance to get one! I think now is the time

Is the glass half empty or half full?...its as full as you fill it!

Gross axle weight.

That's standard.
GCM of 63t
Tare(rough guestimate) k200, 11t a trailer 5t b trailer 6t so total tare of around 22t

Okay Bruce, now you're just showing off! How about making a batch of those KW COEs with the steering wheel on the left side. No trailers, just the KWs. There are many COE fans here in Trumpsville. I would buy the first dozen at the right price!!! Thanks for the insane pictures. CAW
