My Speedy Kenworth Log Truck

Just for grins, I decided to check the 0-60 mph time of my Caterpillar powered Kenworth Log Truck.

The C12, 12 liter engine probably has about 350 horsepower with a 13 speed Eaton transmission.

Loaded to 85,000 lbs, two minutes, four seconds to 60 miles per hour.
Unloaded at 24,500 lbs, 41 seconds.
