So we live in a pretty rural place, the nearest city is about 60km away.
As we are farmers I had to take our tractor up north of this city from our place to get the trailer on the back painted, it took me about 2 hours to drive it there,
a few days later when I came bac I had to go through town to pic some stuff up, so as I'm driving down the highway, "I got some pretty strange looks I have to admit" the tractor and trailer took up just alittle more than one lane wide not much more but the wheels just over hang the line, I got through that part no wories it was when I came up to traffic lights people were really; I don't know? scared I guess? because they were running red lights and shit so they wouldn't be beside me, but not this one guy ohh no, I looked across to hear this toyota hieace van reving his dieasil power at me! so naturally I had to rev mine "mine was much much more impressive" since I have 24 gears I slected about mid range and was set to launch with about 2000rpm "turbos spinning at 1800" now bear in mind I am 12 ton with an 18ton trailer on the bac! he is what 1500kgs?
The light goes green I get an excellent start of the line and pull in my selected gear at about 10km'h he started to take me until I started using my shuttle gears, "there gears like a tiptronic car but operate with just a button" I started to real him bac in when we hit 20km'h. I hit 'F" range these are the road gears, I like to call them the go FAST gears, i started pulling on him all the way to 40km'h my tapp out speed!. we hit the next red as I looked over at him he had a huge smile on his face! then he took the next turn.
I don't care what you say:
John Deere kill list- toyota Van 2.7litre deasil.
