The WSI XXL event, held annually since 2016, gives you a good impression of modern heavy on-road vehicles in the Netherlands. There’s a wide variety of tractors, trucks and big rigs on display at the very well organized show. Many of them were in the CC-spotlight over the past two months, this is the event’s colorful finale.

2015 Volvo FH16 heavy-haulage tractor, owned by the Nooteboom company…
…the manufacturer of this semi low loader. Semi in this case means not as low as a low loader, as the axles/wheels are underneath the bed, not behind it.
2018 Scania R 450 tractor with a 2014 LAG semi-trailer, carrying an intermodal tank container. Until 1990, the Belgian LAG company also built buses and coaches. That division was sold to Van Hool, another renowned name in the business.
MPGM stands for Maximum Permissible Gross Mass, tare is the weight of the tank container when empty.
