wonder what it used to be
Do graders count?
love how soon this thread dies, another one is made. makes me happy there are people out there who love these machines. everyone been posting cab photos so i will as well
actually the best thread on /n/ right nowalso better than the entire /o/ catalog
>/n/ is actually just a horde of machine operators on night shift Makes sense now how they can afford their bicycles.
>>1957918Nice, should make a it heavy machinery general
>>1958165Are you maintenance grader on a mine?
>>1958167Yeah mate yep
>>1958180On the coal?
>>1958223Yeah coal mines, although I mostly do the pre strip side of things.
>>1958257Copy grader 20? Yeah mate rough as on the south side of the pile. I just put 2 loads of shale over it and we rolled it in if you can cut it over please.
>>1958354Yeah copy mate be there in a bit, dayshift just handed over the grader.
>>1957921nah some of us work days and are mechanics
Waiting to fly back to work, I hate this life bros. I love the job and I love the dirt, but I miss my family and I know that at least half the coming nights will be spent paralysed by existential dread.
>>1958395At least that’s bogged. I got called once to get this out. I just fucking drove it out.
>>1959569Have you considered moving to a mining town? Makes a huge difference being with the family every day
>>1959575We Had plenty of bogs on that job. How do the scrapers go? They look like fun.
crossed empty just fine. got stuck coming back.
>>1959726Lmao nice bog. Is that a water truck? Don't even think about scrapers. Don't look at them. You will never escape if they manage to get you in one.
>>1959723EHHHHHHH mining towns are grim
>>1955000>>1955786I feel like we need some significan R&D for tractors.
>>1961909what u meaning?
>>1961934I apologize. idk y it's sideways
>>1961909What are you talking about?
>>1961937Neat pictures. Love seeing different cabs.
>>1962594no problem. couldn't find any more in cab photos so how about just a cab
I quit my job, it feels so freeing! But now my life has no direction and I feel depressed.
why dont they just say that differentials on tractor trailer trucks are built more like trains than like any carwould have saved so much of these situations from happeningtrucks are terrible without the diff locked, thats why trucking seems to be a lot like baby sitting a death machine
>>1963653In what way are you suggesting that differential design affected the rollover in your picture?
>>1963657the design is bad(for traction) because the double tire-wheels dont spin independently, meaning 16 wheels are following the turning radius of two steering onesand it's mostly the differential philosophy thats never talked about.the differential has to be over-built and move slowly to accommodate the unavoidable tread slipping that happens when two parallel tires try to follow one line
>>1963664You want all 4 on the duallies to spin independently of each other? Not really possible and a dually is generally for weight and ground pressure reasons rather than traction. Or are you talking about having two live axles at the back of the tractor unit? Generally those are manually lockable together (cross locks) independent of the manually locking differentials themselves (diff locks). Or are you just not happy with the Ackermann angle as a concept? Sorry if I missed your point.
>>1963691its a bit of a rhetorical post, trucks are big, bigger is dangerousbut about diff locking, ive been playing a lot of those eu/na trucking simulator/ snowrunner gamesand especially in snowrunner, when i get speed on a highway, im prone to sliding out on every truck. only when it has an always-engaged diff-lock does the trucks' top gear feel manageable
>>1963716Did I read that right? You’re locking the diffs in a truck in top gear at highway speeds?
>>1964109his experience is also from a video game, and doesn't know his differentials are fixing to explode. example irl
