Heavy trucks at the skid pad, Part I

It was a beautiful autumn day out at the Eaton Proving Grounds test facility last week — just perfect for photos of some aerodynamic Class 8 trucks as well as some vocational trucks at the skid pad. 

Fleet Owner was there with other industry reporters to check out new low-speed maneuverability features of Eaton transmissions and options on Eaton-Cummins SmartAdvantage Powertrains.
