Grump, quite the rig. I wonder what limitations that would put on various backing situations? And with a mega tractor like that, would he have to pull a 48' trailer instead of a 53'?

Buddy of mine that hauls for Mercer (flatbed) bought one of those recently. He's a full-time in the truck. FB is for the most part - 48' trailers.

Most of the guys that invest in these ($250K and up) and running oversized/specialized hauling - and these permitted loads mean they (usucally) can't run at night - so they spend a lot of downtime in middle-of-nowhere-ville. Since they're already oversized, the tractor wheelbase and weight doesn't really matter at that point. The longer wheelbase makes backing a little cumbersome - but I guess the payoff in "luxury accommodations" makes up for it.

Got the opportunity to drive this jewel today while my truck was in the shop. It's my companies former show truck. She's sure seen her better days but that 425 hp Cat and 15 speed sure will haul a load of coal. Was grossing just under 126,000 lbs all afternoon.

And I can't get the pic to work. Wonderful. One day I'll figure this technology thing out.

This here's an unconventional "BIG RIG" I managed to snap a photo of at a Pilot in Ohio a couple days ago.

I have been waiting to get some photos from my external hard drive. Well, I have some deployment ones on it, and thought I would share this. Looks pretty bad ass.

Figured I’d throw a pic of mine in the bunch.
