    Last time I saw a bed like that it was my steel company delivering re-bar.

    But is that middle axle for real? Seems impossible.

    Looks to me like the middle axle is the original drive axle. Look closely, theres TWO more axles behind it.

    We had a truck similar to this in our shop recently....3 steer axles and 3 drives. Somehow it manages to get around a corner....

    Go to Michigan. The while space under a truck will be axles.

    You sure there are only 3 steering axles on the concrete pump? I think the rearmost steers too, just the opposite direction.

    I downloaded the photo and ramped up the gamma to see into the shadows better and its very possible the two rear axles are not attached to the truck notice the mud flap that hangs drapped over the tire on the middle axle that wouldn't last but a few miles before it was worn through. Its possible they are just being stored under the truck. That said anything is possible.

    Seems possible - but one hell of a rear overhang. Not much "departure angle" off road! :lol:

    I moved an 80ft. bridge on this rig, but when we made turns, it would almost drag the tires sideways right off the rims, especially the two rear axles we added.

    I think the one in that picture is as you describe. The one we worked on definitely has 3 drive axles. These things leave the factory with 1 steer axle & 2 drives, and the concrete pump manufacturers do all kinds of crazy stuff to them...I think each one is different LOL.
