While 4 wheel trucks are not the smoothest ride the well design lowers the rider and thus offering a more stable ride than some equivalent bogie trucks. Having only one axle in front allows for the driver to be much closer to the engine than a bogie well wagon.

The chassis is shared with the raised truck and can easily be converted to a raised truck with the purchase of the additional raised truck parts.
