What a nightmare ,I sure am glad I retired from working on them. No more easy access or simplicity of the engine.

I'm waiting to find out how this all holds up in a construction environment.

The mechanics are going to school. These new emission systems are a real nightmare. I had to take a class on how to operate it and all the new equipment it has.

It's definately a PACCAR (noticed soem PACCAR badging in the first picture), but it looks more like something from Capt. Nemo's submarine!

no engine at all, it's just a mass of wires/sensors/tubing. each wheel has an electric motor to drive the thing. they had to put something under the hood
