Taking my 30 at Petro in York NE and came across this truck

0430314001560345201.jpg apparently it's the "xp3 world largest semi truck". imagine the turn radius needed to maneuver that. Next time I'll snag a pic NOT aimed at the sun smile.gif

Apparently it's called The Red Giant. Wheelbase 430 inches, 92 feet with trailer. Wow!

I often wonder how they back those trucks with huge sleepers into some places, guess they have to pick and choose their loads more carefully or hope they have a spotter to park it for them.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

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.

First thing I noticed was what appears to be an extra fuel tank behind the drives.... rofl-3.gif Probably cost's a weebit more to pull extra weight around ....

That’s not a sleeper, it’s a suite! SWEET!! That’s the biggest one I’ve seen, Rob.

That is not the drives. That is a tag axle, lol. Just an extra axle to distribute the weight.

That tag axle also steers lol. I've seen that truck once before as well. You would definitely have to be on top of your game in your trip planning cause that thing can't go everywhere!

The one thing about it though is since it can’t go everywhere, wherever you are you have everything on board. I’d like to see how it’s equipped, but I can’t guess about the cost to operate it per mile. Fuel mileage is probably in the 4’s.

Found a video someone did of it. https://youtu.be/I1e7AoA8UK4 the sleeper extends even. I'd be even more scared of getting hit while sleeping
