Carson NL12 Volvo quad-axled logger semi


Don Carson had quite a diverse fleet at the time this shot was taken in late ’80s.

The NL12 Volvo was working under logs on what was a reasonably comment configuration in the day – a quad-axled semi .

Other brands in the fleet included Mack and ERF which showed that operators usually hedged their bets as the swarm of new and often untested brands were pouring into the country. Mack and Volvo of course have stood the test of time on our shores – ERF, however, fell by the way after a history of 100 and more years of putting trucks and traction-engines to work on our shores.
