What is a ‘tumbler’ truck? If it’s a redi-mix concrete truck, that is heavy work putting chutes together and stowing them after use. Maybe a tumbler truck is a yard jockey truck. That might work for Charles just maybe

Well there you go Bruce. Hacking this dream to pieces. Ha ha. I believe that a concrete truck is a tumbler. I guess I will have to wait and see. I won't jump into CDL training without a job lined up. It would be a waste of my time and money otherwise. Maybe I'll see if I can get a medical exam done for a medical card. If I can get that, that may open up more opportunities. I am willing to drive long distance and put in the time, it is just the other than driving stuff that may kill my chances.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Yeah Charles, I try to destroy as many dreams as I can but they always turn out to be mine, lol

Actually I’m a big cheerleader for you. Maybe you could think about a dump truck driving job starting out. And also, I know that you might have been given the 25# restriction for liability reasons but you may have the ability to lift more. Hang in there and keep trying!
