    Description

    Describes the performance of an 11-axle logging truck with a central tire inflation system. Results included reduced damages to roads, improved ride of the truck, improved drawbar pull, and reduced rolling resistance. Road construction costs were reduced 62%, primarily due to using 33% less gravel.
