Truck driver here, i hold a class a license and drive a tractor trailer 95% of the time. My company also operates tri and quad axle dumptrucks so sometimes ill hop in one of those too. We haul bulk materials like scrap steel, rock, salt, sand fertilizer etc. I mostly haul scrap steel as im leased to river metals recycling in louisville ky. Here's my rig, 06 Freightliner Classic and 2011 East dump trailer.

I ran this bad boy for awhile too, its a CAS stoneslinger on an International 7600 truck with 18 speed transmission. This s.o.b. will lob gravel 140 feet to place rock on a hillside or anywhere not easily accessible. We use it to fill residential foundations so concrete can be poured.

My home away from home. I'm responsible for the upkeep on this beast. Lol. Washing it, painting it. Year round job.
I grew up on the Ohio river around maysville watched those water tractors all day long while hoeing tobacco I dreamed of the escape now in CA life support Biomed

That looks badass limb killer. I am welder for Union Pacific railroad out in Roseville California. I don't have any pics, they don't really like it too much of us taking photos. Good job, pays the bills.
