The crew at Pacific Truck Manufacturing INC did a 100% job this truck is perfect and is better than any truck I have seen.

Hank Rabe received these pictures from Smith Wells, Capstan Hauling, Grande Prairie , Alberta

Started as a Schlumberger truck in Norman Wells NWT. 3408 Cat PCTI. 450 horsepower with 12513.

After I bought it, installed a 38124 Manitex and eventually changed engine to N14 Cummins and 18 speed. 525 horsepower.

Eventually the picker had issues with the sub frame and once removed, decided to buy a tri drive as it was too heavy as a tandem/tandem.


Hank Rabe received these pictures from Smith Wells. Burnside Leasing was a company owned by Capstan Hauling and here are some pictures of their 1981 P-510 S. They bought the Pacific as a three axle truck and latter on they rebuilt it as a Twin Steer. This Pacific had a sad ending when in 1998 Capstan Hauling Shop burnt down and the Pacific was wrote off.
