    I’m guessing with what’s left of the ladder step that is bent up into the tank and the step bolted to the rear fuel tank hanger that it was a ‘80’s 362 coe. The battery box style would be the identifier but it is completely burnt out from between the steer tire and tank. 352’s did not use a ladder step that went outboard of the battery box. The step was on the battery box with a notched cover.

    We were blowing straw on a construction job with bales stacked in the back of a dump truck. A bale fell over on the muffler of the straw blower and ignited.

    We were shocked at how fast the fire spread. Ended up dumping the burning load of straw along with the blower. The blower was totaled but it saved the dump truck.

    I was on that road earlier that day driving a UHaul to help my daughter move to Oregon. I can't make out from the picture if he was pulling doubles or triples. Those hay guys in Idaho and eastern Oregon and Washington always freak me out. And yeah, a lot of them drive old cabovers.
