Walkabout Transport owner Debbie Desiderato bought this 2017 Western Star 4900EX after a neighbor asked if she'd be willing to haul logs for his company during her spare time. She says the truck and its Detroit DD16 are the first of each brand she's driven, and she's impressed with the power. The rig is capable of hauling more than 90,000 pounds with 46k rears, 20k steers, full lockers and a 13-speed. "This truck gets it done on the muddy forest trails of the Blue Ridge Mountains," Desiderato says.
