Articulated Rock Truck
An often underestimated piece of heavy equipment, Rock Trucks are known for their ability to move large, heavy loads over very rough terrain. They are also recognized for the dangers associated with their many blind spots and the tipping hazard associated with their high centre of gravity.
The fact that they are 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 are dangerous to operate in the real world without proper training.
