Are you speaking about the failure of TML 4921. AFAIK,they are selling in huge numbers in Rajasthan, by far the largest market for Tractor trailors.

I am slowly but surely seeing a rise in the number of Tata 4921s on the road these days, but that number is not even close to the number of AMW 4923s one can spot on the road. They seem to have a monopoly in the 49 tonne segment.

BTW, I have been seeing a couple of Hino 500 series rigid trucks , probably for sale or demo(?) at the Toyota dealer here in Pune. They look okay really, but the cabin from outside looks more like that on a chinese truck.

Stunning machinery and sunning cargo. I think they are distillation towers.

Guys, just saw this a while ago on the way to office. This is a multi-axle truck (8 wheels) used by defense. The question is, i saw a "Tatra" written on it along with BEML. I thought the heavy vehicles for defense is manufactured by BEML alone. never knew there is a collaboration with Tatra. Does any one have more details?

Tatra trucks license-built by BEML continue to have their steering on the wrong side (Left hand drive) even though BEML has been assembling these trucks for a long long time now. An extra crew member is required on each army truck because of this limitation. What a criminal waste of human resources! On the other hand, Tatra trucks made by Vectra India have right hand drive.

What's interesting about Tatra trucks is that their engines are air-cooled!

Yesterday night I saw a Mahindra Navistar with a 3rd axle behind the steering axle. I think its twin steerable, like that on the AL trucks with similar arrangements.

Dont really know if these pics qualify for heavy trucks or classic commercial vehicles but still adding it to the continuation of this thread.

While traveling through Calicut, i saw this incredible truck which is an Ashok Leyland Hippo and am sure this is a vintage piece which is atleast some 40-50 years old. Dont really know when this one was produced but its owned by KSEB. this one was carrying a transformer.
Note the old AL logo which looks like a bird with 2 boxer dogs looking from the opposite direction.
A pristine vehicle still going strong. Hats off to KSEB for maintaining it in all its true form.

Looks incredibly well-maintained, just like it came out of the factory yesterday.

Looking at the grille, this must be a truck from the early '70s (before 1974)

MODS : I think this post would be more aptly placed in this thread - A Little Heavy Haulage History.

Whoa! Thats quite a truck! Hats off to KSEB for maintaining it so well. The load looks heavy as well.

BTW, the Kerala MVD website says this truck was registered on April 14, 1979. That means the truck is over 31 years old now!

This brings another question, are commercial vehicles older than 15 years allowed?
