Really nice pictures!
It's really true that just by puttiing on some nice alloys the truck looks much more premium

Thanks for your Big Support.

---->

A new exciting week begins.

Image


Blue light escort through karlsruhe.

Image


Closing time in Forchheim at the Autohof. Since all restaurants are closed due to the corona virus, there are currently only drive-in options.
So I have to queue as a driver in the Drive in to get some fast food. Very uncomfortable

Image


Paper bales load in Karsbach and then take off to Wörth.
The recycling company was built on an old Bundeswehr base. so the bales are loaded in a large hangar.

Image


A wonderful route through the Spessart to Frankfurt.

Image


The sunset in the back goes to Heilbronn.

Image


Switched off. Now the quiet part of the evening begins. Order pizza and watch TV.

Image

Image


45 minute break with a view.

Image


My boss goes for two days, which of course has its advantages and disadvantages. I get paid for a meal, but I also have to explain everything and work properly :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :lol:

Image


I also ordered aluminum rim caps for my trailer rims. These have now come and of course I put them on right away.
Now it almost fits optically. Bolt protection rings come this week and will be painted right away.

Image


Load garbage for a small transfer. of course the boss is there again.

Image


Off to the weekend.

Image


My new curtains are coming later this week.
So look forward to it
Have a nice Sunday and stay healthy. :D

Hi, how was the 530 over the 480, do you feel that power, torque and consumption difference so much? And would you buy a 530 or a 480 if you had the chace to buy a new truck?

Thanks for your Support.

@raduspeedy
So you can tell the difference between the 530 and 480 in terms of power on the mountain and the 530 also has a different sound because it has a different exhaust system.
If I had the chance I would still take a 480 because it is more economical and the 530 has problems with the regeneration of the particle filter

--------->

Had a hard day, look forward to my day off and to my bed.

Image


My new curtains and borders have come in, put them straight in, I have to do the folding at the weekend.

Image

Image


On the way to Wörth a large heavy transport in front of me.

Image


Then an ambulance came from behind. The heavy transport then stopped at the construction site and let the ambulance pass. Honorary action.

Image


Unloading in Wörth. stage the vehicle a bit.

Image


Unfortunately I have to wait longer in Waiblingen. The sorting system is broken and now all the paper has to be jammed.

Image


My wheel trim rings have also come, I painted them directly and made them on. I love this look.

Image


The next day in Pilsach, I have my boss with me again today. A little stressful. I have to explain everything 3 times.

Image


Shortly before the weekend, another short talk with a friend.

Image


Another thing picked up by my parents and a walk in the forest.

Image


In the evening the rings were quickly painted black and built into the drive axle of my colleague's truck yesterday.

Image


In the afternoon I met my boss, who was with our Actros at the TÜV (technical inspection). I then ordered him to drive the truck into the car wash.

Image


It looks much better, doesn't it?

Image


I wish you a pleasant week, with us it will be a short week until Thursday, then it's Easter. So Friday and Monday free. :mrgreen:
