Articulated Trucks

These behemoths are known for their tremendous capability to move large, heavy loads over very rough terrain. They are also known for the dangers associated with their many blind spots and ability to tip arising from their high centre of gravity. The fact that they may be articulated makes them easy to manoeuvre in tight quarters but also adds to the complexity of their operation, particularly when backing up. These big toys were fun to play with as a child in our sand boxes but dangerous to operate in the real world without the proper training.
