1993 Chevrolet C1500 Regular Cab Long Bed Pickup Truck w/260,000 miles on original 305 V8!

This is a 1993 Chevrolet C1500 Regular-Cab Long-Bed pickup. For those of you who do not know, the “C” designation means it is a 2-wheel drive model. 4×4 models got the “K” designation. Aside from a parking brake that proved to be inoperable, the peeling paint that is typical of GM products from this era, stereo speakers that were shot, and an interior in serious need of a cleaning, the truck was fine. It just needed some relatively minor work. Even the air-conditioner, which was still charged with R-12 (1993 was the last year Chevy used R-12 in most of its cars and trucks), worked great!

Here are the Private Party Blue Book Values for this truck:

Excellent: $2,592

Very Good: $2,417

Good: $2,342

Fair: $1,842

I’d put this truck somewhere between “Fair” and “Good,” which would place its current value somewhere in the $2,000 range. The peeling paint on the hood doesn’t bother me too much, so I won’t include the cost of a new paintjob. The cost for fixing the brakes and the cost of a new stereo system, combined with sales tax and all of the usual cost for registering and insuring a vehicle will probably come to about two grand. Providing the engine lasts a little longer, you have yourself one hell of a work truck!

Standard features on both “Cheyenne” and “Silverado” models include padded armrests, rear-wheel antilock brakes, Solar-Ray tinted glass (deep-tinted glass was available on extended-cab models only), intermittent windshield wipers, and a deluxe heater/outside-air-type defogger with side window defoggers (air-conditioning was an extra cost option not just in the base models, but even in the more expensive Silverado models), among other options. An AM radio was standard on the Cheyenne, which is surprising even for almost 20 years ago, but the Silverado came with an AM/FM radio standard. The list of standard features on the W/T, Cheyenne, and Silverado would go on for a very long time, so let’s get started on the options this particular truck has.

This truck is equipped with the following options on top of the many standard features:
Silverado trim
Air conditioning
Convenience Group (includes Tilt-Wheel Adjustable Steering Column and electronic speed control)
Convenience Group (includes power door locks and power windows)
Seating: Custom Cloth split bench
Radio: AM/FM stereo with premium dual rear speakers, seek-scan, cassette tape player, and digital clock
Sliding rear window
15″ cast-aluminum wheels
5.0L (305 cu. in.) V8 w/EFI-175 SAE Net HP @ 4000 RPM and 270 Torque (lb.-ft.) @ 2400 RPM

This truck does not have the G80 locking/limited-slip/posi rear end, just a conventional open rear diff. This drivetrain and option combination is typical of what you might find in ab rand new truck on a dealer’s lot back in 1993 if you chose to buy off the lot instead of ordering.

This truck has the Conventional Two-Tone Paint (RPO ZY2), in Teal Green Metallic w/Quicksilver Metallic lower accents. The interior is gray custom cloth with a split bench seat.

Heavy Construction News – #Construction #news today

When heavy equipment operator Rhonda Lepori revs up the LX01 wheel loader to transport green waste around the landfill, she has to be careful to not sneak up on other workers. “It’s a quick machine, but it’s quiet, so you have to watch out because other people don’t really hear you coming,” she says.

The LX01 is Volvo Construction Equipment’s prototype electric-hybrid wheel loader. It underwent real-world testing at Waste Management’s Redwood Landfill in Novato, Calif., for three months last winter, handling biodegradable yard waste as part of a composting operation. Running off a bank of onboard lithium-ion batteries with a 3.6-liter diesel engine recharging them as needed, the LX01 is the first prototype from Volvo CE’s ambitious Electromobility initiative.

Seeking to build on battery technology developed by its sister company Volvo Trucks, Volvo CE is trying out electric machines. “With the LX01, we have 98% new parts,” says Kent Meyers, director of advanced engineer products at Volvo CE. “We’re not looking to take this specific machine into production, but we do want to see where this road takes us.” In addition to the LX01 wheel loader, Volvo CE  also is developing a prototype electric-hybrid compact excavator.

Volvo CE tested the LX01 at two WM locations in California: the Redwood landfill and a facility in Moreno Valley. The trials took place from November 2016 to May 2017 and were sponsored by the California Energy Commission and CALSTART, a clean-energy advocacy group. A report on the LX01’s performance during the trials will be presented to the energy commission in September.

“Projects like this one help California reach its ambitious climate-change goals, improve air quality and support the economy,” says John Butler, manager for alternative and renewable fuels and vehicle technology for the energy commission. “We look forward to continuing to work on innovative projects like this one and can’t wait to see machines like the LX01 deployed around California.

While the final results from the trials are not yet in, earlier testing saw fuel savings of up to 50%. “We have maybe 20% idle time on one of our big machines that runs 7.5 to 9 gallons an hour, all day,” says John Meese, senior director for heavy equipment with WM. “This thing runs for a couple of hours and burns 4.5 gallons an hour while it recharges everything. The difference in fuel alone for what it does is dramatic.”

By shifting to an electric drive, Volvo CE engineers could change up the typical wheel loader design. Each wheel is controlled by an electric motor and there are no axles, allowing the hydraulic linkage to be brought in closer for greater lift capacity. The absence of a large diesel engine or bulky emissions controls in the rear also let designers put in a steeply sloped hood, improving the operator’s sight lines in the back. “Visibility is huge for me,” says Lepori. “I’m working around people on the ground all the time.”

During the trials, the LX01 recharged each evening at a custom 600V charging station, and only engaged the diesel generator during the day as needed. By decoupling the drivetrain and hydraulics from the engine, technicians were able to fine-tune performance through software to suit the individual operator’s style.

WM’s Meese sees other benefits from the dramatic redesign. “Tires are a big expense,” he notes, saying that programmable torque allows operators to reduce wheel slippage, the main cause of tire damage at WM’s sites. “There’s very little for material to wrap up in because nothing on the undercarriage is exposed. We might pay more up front, but we’ll make it back over the lifetime,” he says.

Russian ALL TERRAIN military vehicle drives on snow swamp mud water and land better than 4WD

A screw-propelled vehicle is a land or amphibious vehicle designed to cope with difficult snow and ice or mud and swamp. Such vehicles are distinguished by being moved by the rotation of one or more auger-like cylinders fitted with a helical flange that engages with the medium through or over which the vehicle is moving. Modern vehicles called Amphirols and other similar vehicles have specialised uses.
The weight of the vehicle is typically borne by one or more pairs of large flanged cylinders; sometimes a single flanged cylinder is used with additional stabilising skis. These cylinders each have a helical spiral flange like the thread of a screw. On each matched pair of cylinders, one will have its flange running clockwise and the other counter-clockwise. The flange engages with the surface on which the vehicle rests. Ideally this should be slightly soft material such as snow, sand or mud so that the flange can get a good purchase. An engine is used to counter-rotate the cylinders—one cylinder turns clockwise and the other counter-clockwise. The counter-rotations cancel out so that the vehicle moves forwards (or backwards) along the axis of rotation.
The principle of the operation is the inverse of the screw conveyor. A screw conveyor uses a helical screw to move semi-solid materials horizontally or at a slight incline; in a screw propelled vehicle, the semi-solid substrate remains stationary and the machine itself moves.
Four-wheel drive, All-wheel drive, AWD, 4WD, or 4×4 (“four by four”) is a four-wheeled vehicle with a drivetrain that allows all four wheels to receive torque from the engine simultaneously.[1][2][3][4]

While many people typically associate the term 4×4 with off-road vehicles and Sport utility vehicles, powering all four wheels provides better control than normal road cars on many surfaces,[citation needed] and is an important part in the sport of rallying.

In abbreviations such as 4×4, the first figure is normally the total wheels (more precisely, axle ends, which may have multiple wheels), and the second, the number that are powered.

Syntactically, 4×2 means a four-wheel vehicle that transmits engine power to only two axle-ends: the front two in front-wheel drive or the rear two in rear-wheel drive.[5] By this system, a six wheeled military transport truck would be a 6×6, while the typical American semi-truck tractor unit having two drive axles and a single unpowered steering axle would be a 6×4.
Russia Listeni/ˈrʌʃə/ or /ˈrʊʃə/ (Russian: Россия, tr. Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə] ( listen)), also officially known as the Russian Federation[10] (Russian: Российская Федерация, tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə fʲɪdʲɪˈrat͡sɨjə] ( listen)), is a country in northern Eurasia.[11] It is a federal semi-presidential republic, comprising 83 federal subjects. From northwest to southeast, Russia shares land borders with Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland (both with Kaliningrad Oblast), Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia, and North Korea. It shares maritime borders with Japan by the Sea of Okhotsk and the US state of Alaska across the Bering Strait. At 17,075,400 square kilometres (6,592,800 sq mi), Russia is the largest country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth’s inhabited land area. Russia is also the world’s ninth most populous nation with 143 million people as of 2012.[12] An automobile, autocar, motor car or car is a wheeled motor vehicle used for transporting passengers, which also carries its own engine or motor. Most definitions of the term specify that automobiles are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to eight people, to typically have four wheels, and to be constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods.[3]

The year 1886 is regarded the year of birth of the modern automobile – with the Benz Patent-Motorwagen, by German inventor Carl Benz. Motorized wagons soon replaced animal-drafted carriages, especially after automobiles became affordable for many people when the Ford Model T was introduced in 1908.

The term motorcar has formerly also been used in the context of electrified rail systems to denote a car which functions as a small locomotive but also provides space for passengers and baggage. These locomotive cars were often used on suburban routes by both interurban and intercity railroad systems.[4]

It was estimated in 2010 that the number of automobiles had risen to over 1 billion vehicles, up from the 500 million of 1986.[5] The numbers are increasing rapidly, especially in China, India and other NICs.[6] Off-roading is the activity of driving or riding a vehicle on unsurfaced roads or tracks, made of materials such as sand, gravel, riverbeds, mud, snow, rocks, and other natural terrain.
