For the record these places do actually tip the entire combo, whether you're day cab or sleeper. It's cool as hell but also mildly unnerving.

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

Ohhhhhh yeah. Wow! I measured it at a 65 degree angle. That's incredible. Not only would everything fall, as Tractor Man pointed out, but all the turn signal fluid would leak out.

I would not let these guys turn my truck like that, my stuff would be everywhere rofl-3.gif

I dunno how you keep your cab but I had very very little stuff fall out of place when doing this. It's a gradual raise, and there's a couple back and forth shakes at the zenith to loose any product in the trailer, then gradual back down.

Frankly it serves as a good display of what you need to secure better or move elsewhere in the cab, without the damage that comes with something smacking your head.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

One of my drivers was telling me about this the other day - he had a load of carrots - said "they unloaded me really fast!" and took these pictures:

You can also just back up really fast then slam on the brakes. Might have to do it a couple of times, still, it shouldn't take long

I've delivered to landfills before, but had not seen this, machine picks up trailer and dumps load, they call it a "tipper"
