Western Star was at World of Concrete showcasing the versatile 4700, the efficient 5700, as well as the rugged 6900 to name a few. Some say there are over 80,000 attendees, but all we know is it’s called World of Concrete!
As we all know, Western Star does more than make a good looking truck, and that’s exactly what they like to show at WOC. At the booth, Western Star held their 6th Annual Get Tough Challenge where they let nearly 200 drivers take the 4700 out on the course and compete for the highest score. This year they had two identical 4700 dump trucks with the powerful DD13 engine under the hood. The only difference was one had the Eaton Ultra Shift Plus, and the other an Allison Automatic transmission.
There was also a 4700 mixer many got to take around the track to really test their skills! While some operators came out with higher scores than others, one constant were the smiles from ear to ear everyone had at the end of their runs. Prizes included VIP passes to the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Race (Grand Prize), iPad mini 4’s, Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones, and JBL Wireless Speakers. The Get Tough Challenge is event you don’t want to miss at World of Concrete!
