IT TAKES A BIG MAN TO ADMIT DEFEAT. AND A BIGGER TRUCK SO HE DOESN'T HAVE TO.

When you need to move mountains, there's only one truck for the job: the Western Star 6900. Spec'ed as a tractor, it can haul loads of over 500,000 pounds. And as a dump, it can move 80,000 pounds at a time. Add in another ton of options, and you've got a truck that's as powerful as it is customizable. From log trucks to dump trucks to extreme duty trucks, the 6900 can handle it all.
