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.


  1. That’s why it’s so fast…. it’s only got 473K on the clock! 🙂

  2. That’s trucking the logs.
