Hi Boys and Girls. Reggie Roo here.
Today we are looking at big trucks. Semi-Trailer Trucks are the kings of the road.
They are made up of two parts; the large truck with a powerful engine at the front. And a
trailer that attaches to the back. The trailer can be loaded with all sorts of
things… Grain… food… Petrol… or even a huge
rocket. Here is a small forklift loading the inside
of a trailer with boxes. And here is another Semi-Trailer leaving a
wharf. It is full of fresh fish. Semi-Trailers drive all over the countryside.
Past mountains… Across grassy plains…
And over levees. They deliver their goods along the way.
These trucks are at a sawmill. And this Semi-Trailer has been loaded with tree logs. The driver
sits very high when controlling the truck. That must be fun.
Have you seen a Semi-Trailer before? They are very big aren’t they!
Did you know?… In Australia some really big Semi-Trailers have several trailers! These
are called Road Trains. 1 — 2 — 3 Trailers! Wow, look how long a Road Train is!
