in fairness most of those trailers do actually have big pieces of angle down the inside of the trailer to stop it going one way or the other

DJ, can't say I have ever heard of the firm, there's a helluva lot of oil & gas exploration going on in/around Baku and rakes of western companies represented there, lots of very expensive cars (Hummers, land-cruisers etc......I'm usually only there for a week at a time these days before moving on somewhere else.....I will say the social life is pretty good in the place, decent restaurants and some bars you go in you would think you were in Glasgow, not in the Caucasus

A very impressive variety of trucks I must say.

Quite an eyeopener as to what can still haul a load in some quite serious conditions, I suspect.

Those front tyres on the 6x6 units are huge compared to the normal ? trucks
