    We have lines for parking spots so no on that. Landing gear should never be touched. I leave it at the height the last driver left it at.

    Meh, guess I am going to pile on to this one. I've had people tell me that local LTL isn't even "real truckin".

    A truck is a truck.

    Look at this thing, this is a rear load garbage packer trailer made by the Canadian Company Fanotech, it's a rear load garbage truck that you would see in a neighborhood only it's a what 36-40' trailer. If you were a city you could probably buy 1 of these and eliminate 2 routes. Probably can do 1400 houses.
    They said Fanotech's rear loaders were pretty much a knock off of the American Company EZPak's Goliath sever duty rear load refuse truck.

    When I hauled logs that was true super trucking in my opinion. It was very difficult blind side backing often, tight turns on muddy slick roads, and heavy loads every time. Many OTR truckers can't imagine putting a truck where we put them lol. Guess I wasn't hard core enough to stick it out either.
     
    Mike2633 Thanks this.
