Did they also show how in Donner they have wires under the road that create a guide system for the plow trucks with a monitor in the truck that look like old atari that helps them stay on the road in white outs.

The new Freightliner 114SD at Tracy Road. I'll have to keep tabs on this beast to see who they outfit it for.

That's a sharp looking Freightliner! I'm surprised they went with the old school rotator beacons though - I thought everything was LED these days!

Isn't there an issue with LED's collecting snow when plowing as they don't heat up like a beacon light? I thought I read somewhere about places having issues like that with the LEDs getting covered in snow.

That's one of the reasons we switched back to rotary beacons on the new Kenworth I run for the town, but also because of the static interference with our radios, both county and CB,(we all run CB's here, it's the only way to talk to the loader operators, blacktop plant's, chip-seal operators, etc.). Even with noise filters, we were getting feedback from the roof mounted strobes. Don't have those problem's so far with the rotary's.
Just my opinion guys,
Have a great weekend, paul.

as far as i,m concerned, the LEDs are no where near as bright as a good old school rotator...they dont build up snow and ice and cut thru heavy snow

Rotators do cut through the snow, on the ex PA Turnpike truck I drive the rotators could be seen much further then the LED's of the DOT truck I was plowing with this winter, we plowed through some heavy/windblown snow this past winter too.

I have strobes in my head lights and rotators on the roof. I find the strobes to only be effective at night you loose them in the day time

I'm kind of torn on those new Freightliners. They have a tough look, yet a way out there odd look. I'll stick to the Granite!

I know this isn't a plow truck, but I figured you guys would enjoy it. And, it tows plow trucks!

Erie's latest acquisition. It's a Maxxforce Work Star. Too bad it won't fit down half the city streets when it's towing.
