My daily driver.

Well, I'll be spending 15+ hours a day in it for a while.

Been burning around 120 gallons of diesel a day. I can spray about 4 acres per gallon. Can't remember how many gallons an hour I'm burnin. Probably around 8.

and that is where the top one went, back to WI to get refurbished.
the fire truck went to dallas to get refurb'd also. although the fire truck had hardly any use on it, the army truck had bullet holes all over it though...

X2! HEMTT's are frickin beastly. They like to chew through sand dunes lol. You end up with a 20 foot pillar of sand being thrown up in the air, it's a great sight.
