    The last picture of 113 and first picture of 114 is an amazing rig. Tractor steering one way and trailer wheels steering the opposite direction.

      not so amazing,the tractor steers in like a normal car,all those axles are justto distribute the
      weight of the load on the axles.
      the more axles you have,the more load you can take,but the more axles you have ,the more friction of the tyres on the road.
      so letting them steering,they come easier arround a corner without excessive wear.

      by letting the trailer steer in the opposite direction, the trailer will be pushed outside of the corner.

      looking if is was a ship,the turningpoit of a vessel is about 1/3 or1/4 at the bow,every thing behind that point is steering out.
      so she will pused around the corner,whili a car is pulled into a corner

        Malaysian Lorries

        In contrast to all the shiny big trucks shown in this thread, here is a typical Malaysian lorry:




        Not much for comfort, wooden benches to sit on and no doors. Some have a gunny sack as a "door", but is doesn't give much protection against tropical rainstorms.

        Lorries get to carry many things, but this is not an every-day cargo:

          we may not even transport living animalslike that.
          when he gets angry ,he brak the whole truck apart.

          there is here a regulation that there may not more dan a amout of animals in a truck of a kind, so they had place to walk.
          transportation companies want as much as possable,sure every animal is a paying cargo,but also that when the fully packed they can't move or fall over in corners.
          live stock transporting to anywhere in europe issn't easy too,you had to unload them after 8 hours of driving go to sleep and load them back in the next morning.
          now you know how we get the name ''cowboys of the road''.

                          I thought this was the best forum for this truck accessory. It's a nickel plated Death Proof Duck. The hood ornament used on the hood of the Rubber Duck's truck in the 1978 movie "Convoy". It is not the original that was used in the movie but is a copy made from the original mold.
