The Really Big Boys

Sure, shooting with Ford's Super Duty lineup of trucks is impressive, but we're still talking human scale vehicles. Head to a strip mine and suddenly you feel like Fisher Price People next to the behemoths they use. You feel like you walked onto the set of "Honey I Shrunk The Kids." Moving 300 tons of rock in one payload isn't for some 10 items or less grocery store basket.

The really big boy. And a small boy in the foreground.

New tires waiting for deployment. About 25K each and a set of four will fill up the semi truck that brings them to the mine. Spare? Hah! Peeking under the truck. It's more like a bed, cab, shocks and wheels. No need for a body.

The truck bed open. In awe humans. The trucks in action. See how perspective is lost? Those monster machines could be Tonkas in a sandbox without a scale reference.
