    Ya Wello ,due to our goofy weight laws some of the states have there are a lot of quad ,six ,and seven axle trucks running the roads. The single wheel axle in the pic is a steerable. Here is a shot of one of mine.

    Thanks Mike

    Looking good wheels
    whats with the single wheel in front of the bogie drive
    is that a load sharing axle ?
    we don't have that sort of setup here on our rigid dumps mostly are just
    bogie drive with single or twin steer

    Yes Dan it is from the Buckeye State, we are about 40 miles east of Columbus, and the recently deceased grinder was a Dewalt Dw400.

    I knew the 400 was too light duty for what I get into, but I put off getting a replacement. After the fatality I rushed to the local box store and picked up two DW28402`s to fill the void.
