This week’s Western Star is a 4900 SA 123 BBC twin-steer winch truck.
This winch truck has a 500HP Cummins ISX engine with a front engine power take-off to drive the 130K and 85K Braden winches. The 18-speed, manual Eaton transmission has a 4 speed Spicer aux. box, and is all rolling on 12R24 tubed rubber. This truck works on rig sites all across Wyoming and North Dakota; hence the dual inside/outside air cleaners for the winter months.
Thanks to Michael Gillam from Floyd’s Truck Center in Cheyenne, WY. for sharing this oilfield workhorse!
