    Could a Kenworth T680 hold up on the lease roads if I don't drive like a jagoff?

    Yeah. Just keep the speeds down. My old KW handled it just fine.

    Halliburton has a lot of t680's,they might be specd different than yours,the quarter fender mounts broke a lot on the Halliburton trucks,just take it easy.They run Bridgestone tires on almost everything,they hold up ok.

    Yes, just drive it gently and grease it weekly.

    How long are waiting times on average? I've heard 5-30 minutes, but I've also heard you better have some entertainment in your truck to keep you occupied for 5-6 hours of waiting most days.

    One must remember that these company's have a We would rather you waiting on us rather than us waiting on you.
    They could care less about you.

    They have a ton of poor reviews from drivers saying they have way more drivers than loads... have you worked for them?

    Sand dried up around Shreveport La a few weeks ago.
    A few come down to South Louisiana to get in on the oilfield hauling.
    They are finding out their is not much hauling going on.
    Chasing a check just like everybody around the country.
    Today I see a ad for sand box O/O up in Shreveport ?
    I know of a few Coil Tube outfits looking for help.

    Look into JRT I have a buddy there now. I left the oil field until we get a smarter president in office. Biden has screwed all of it to hell. I’ve worked for many of them company’s and some were great others not so much. Last one I had 3 truck in promised 26 a ton got running found out they lied and only dished 15. It’s over trucked. When I rolled my trucks out all truck stops and any spot a rig could fit was filled up doing nothing. Best of luck to ya in your adventure
