Hazmat question

I was under the impression car batteries are considered class 8 corrosive hazmat and requires a hazmat endorsement, placards and a hm bol. My company sends out loads of batteries for recycling as a non hm load. Am I incorrect?

Hazmat background check

I am in Tennessee. I have a cleared threat assessment about 1 year ago. I didn't go do the knowledge test then. I recently did the eldt and went to take the knowledge test and was told I need a threat assessment no older than 6 months. This seems odd, I just want to know if this is correct since I thought the threat assessment was good for 5 years.

Steering question

It's a Kenworth. You have turn the wheel to the right slightly.

What is the truck make, and which way is it pulling? Is it pulling with a trailer, without, or both? Does it pull on all roads, or just on the Interstate? How is the tire wear? What's the tire inflation? How many times can you turn the steering wheel from full left to full right?

Steering question

What would cause a truck or something I'm doing to, to not keep a straight line when you grab the wheel but when I let up on the wheel is seems to track straight.

Steering wheel pull.

So Im not exactly sure but If I had to guess the shop replaced the king pins and steers tires. It doesn't pull as in you can see the steering wheel rotate like it was doing but you do have to hold it to the left enough to notice its not centered and its aggravating.

Steering wheel pull.

I had a alignment dont a about a month or two ago and ever since you have to hold the steering wheel about 5-10 degrees to the left, if you let up on the wheel going down the road loaded or empty the truck will go to the right?

Steering wheel play

Okay, thanks for some ideas. The alignment I believe was done at a truck dealership. Yes, less than 10 trucks and the maintenance is done in house.

Small company? Do this place do their own maintenance in house?

Could be a variety of single issues, or a combination of them: tire wear, king pins, axle bushings, tie rod ends, caster/camber set incorrectly, gearbox, etc.

Just because it had a recent alignment doesn't mean much. Most shops (like more than 70%), do not do the alignment correctly. Heck, most shops don't install and torque the tires correctly.
