Argh… It’s NOT a garbage truck!

Posted by on March 31, 2012

 

When I thought about putting this blog together, I knew this would be my first post. I’m wrong, it’s my second. Anyway, this photo drives me crazy. No, nothing about the truck drives me crazy, I absolutely adore the truck. What drives me crazy is all of the so-called ‘journalists’ who insist on calling this amazing piece of engineering a garbage truck, or a dump truck. Have these people ever actually seen a garbage truck? If you troll this photo you’ll find dozens of blogs propagating this myth (and if you look in the comments you’ll see that yours truly has posted corrections more than a few times). Argh.

Anyway, this truck is beautiful, and it’s not a garbage truck dammit! It’s an older Unicat based on a MAN chassis.

    It’s a garbage truck. I know some owner, which have a truck from unicat. They are unhappy with them and wouldn’t buy it again.
    There a sevaral quality issue und the management is only aiming at you money. This is what they do very smart.
    Be careful. I bought my truck from Langer&Bock.

      Yes, well, personal opinions aside, it’s still not a garbage truck in that way.

      How many other owners do you know that are happy?
      Do yo own a UNICAT?
      Do you travel at ALL?

      Hear say does not replace experience. I am a very HAPPY UNICAT OWNER and I SERIOUSLY DOUBT YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.

    I’ve seen that in the news as well and it drives me nuts as well. Journalism isn’t what it used to be, used to be journalists researched and fact checked before putting things in print not to mention they used to proof read and knew how to speel.
