    I really need a camera to take photos of this thing 100k+ GVW spraypainted on it. The tires are at least 7' tall. (My shop is right next to the vehicle maintenance yard).

    get some PICTURES...........:D


    The units that offload the seacans at the CP rail yard are 125,000 lift capacity.....but the LeTournier lifts that load the logs at the lumber mills on the West coast are even bigger.
