This Western Star 4800 SA twin steer chassis consists of a 450 HP DD13 engine, 18-speed Fuller transmission, Meritor 46K twin screws with double lockers, all resting of 40K flat front springs, 20K Hendrickson pusher and 46K Hendrickson Primaax rear suspension. A 3/8” DC rail holds it all together!
The crane is a PM 210sp knuckle boom which can stretch to 164 feet up or 147 feet horizontally; that’s some serious reach! It’s amazing how this “transformer” packages or folds up to fit on approximately 20 feet of frame space behind the cab. The tool boxes as part of the front bumper is a nice touch, too!
Thanks to Mike King from Grande Truck Center in San Antonio, TX for sharing this Star, that reaches for the Stars!
