I'll try and find out the exact pressure,hang on a mo......
Yes i can imagine the lorry i used to drive was a scania 142 double drive STG CAT 3 we used to move plant up to 150 tonne no MOT or PSV because the lorry was classed as a locomotive not allowed to do more than 25MPH and you should be aware of the pressure that is in the hydraulic self steering and suspension rams when you have 150 tonne on top off them and i can tell you its very scary when the seals or a pipe blows beside you.
Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
