Thanks for that Paul, :thumbup:
The trucks in the 1st, 2nd,6th and 7th pics are all running out of the familly firm RPQ at Swanbank, Ipswich.
Those walking floor trailers are discharged into the paver by remote control.
The paver opperator controls it from his paver seat as required making life easier for all.
They carry 27 tonnes.
Couple more pics below.
