CC Outtake: Wide Track, Big Wheels, But Ultra Light

Summer’s finally arrived, and some of the main roads in my neighborhood are getting a serious make-over. One of the rigs used in the process is this former military 6×6 (M…. – too rushed to look it up). It has a mean stance, with those seriously-offset front wheels. Wide tracking…

I’m not totally sure what it does, but it clearly applies something. I saw it moving very slowly over the new gravel substrate; maybe someone more familiar can clue us in. Big wheels, and not just for show – how refreshing.

I couldn’t help notice this on the door. That’s where the maximum vehicle weight is required to be posted, as per Oregon law. 002?? Gigatons?
