    i told you about the weight indicater on the dashboard.
    here is mine,with 2 heavy loaded containers on the chassis.



    and with 2 empty containers.



    max weight that may be 1st axle 8000kg second axle 7500kg and third axle11,500kg

        Looks like willow fluff, though it's very early. We have a few days of it floating about but usually in May. Poplar is similar but does not appear until May/June time. However, it's certainly the seeds of a tree. Good job you managed to get the wheels inside.

                              Thijs, you have worked so very, very, very hard all this weekend, and at what was meant to be a holiday weekend, too. The results are just great - the Highway Cruiser looks like new, and you're already loaded up for tomorrow. Those marks will wear off, they are something to be proud of to show what you've been doing. I hope the boss is pleased that you look after the truck so well, not only the outside but all that you do inside as well. Yes, I know you make it nice inside for your own comfort, but you go to much trouble to do special things that are attractive to look at. I'm so sorry that I'll miss seeing it next month.
                              Take it easy when you get home tomorrow evening.
