Getting a new pup?

So I’m just starting out with my city hauling garbage working nights and it’s been a little over a year since my old dog passed away but a cutie has popped up and needs a home asap! I work locally so I’m home every day but I work nights and can’t bring her to work. Also I have old cats so I’m not sure how having a young pup alone with them would be? I can’t take her to work with me ☹️

Driving a manual transmission truck local. Fun and frustrating.

I got to say I feel like I can shift smoother in a manual that the automatic freight liners do lol

I just started working for my city in haulage (Toronto) but of the new guy’s that have been hired in the past few months I’m the only one who can drive 18 speed so instead of dumping garbage etc. I’ve been moving trailers and tractors around from yard to yard or to the maintenance yards😎

Saying Hi

Congrats 🥳 I may be Canadian but never stop learning or questioning how I can do this better. I’d rather ask dumb questions than do dumb things! The majority of us out there will gladly help a fellow driver out! And if you ever see someone in need I hope you help them out too! As far as advice for starting out? When in doubt get out and look!!! When you are in the real world it doesn’t matter how long it takes you to get docked as long as you don’t hit anything and do it safely!

Order of Performing the Tug Test in CDL Air Brake Test: Before or After?

Here in Canada we do the tug test just before we leave for the road when you check your tractor, trailer and hand spike brakes. In real life I do a tug test when I hook up to a new trailer before I get out to raise the landing gear so if I’m not hooked up properly I don’t drop the trailer

I feel your pain haha I live in Toronto and do city driving so every time I get into 5/6 I come to a red light 😑. It’s nice around 12-3am but before then it’s crazy busy. The other day I was on the highway crawling along going from 1st gear up to 3rd then back again for an hour trying to go 10km.

Favorite customer?

For me my favourite place was toys r us in Vaughan Ontario (north of Toronto) as i was the gatehouse guard before I started driving so I knew the routine from both sides of the glass lol

Dump truck log

Well sorry for the late late reply lol. Bit of tough luck lately. The truck I was driving broke down so I’m currently out of a job (got an interview on Sunday 🤞) and I have to redo my air brake course to get my class 1 license again even though nobody can figure out why 😑 so I’m going to redo the course on the 20th so I can get back behind the wheel. I can drive a class 3 straight truck so I’ll do that for now. It still pays good and I’ll be doing roll off dumpsters so it’s at least something for now
