    Seems like most of their trailers I see are smooth side frameless MAC's. I would say they should way 11,000-11,500 depending on options -spread vs closed tandem lift axle etc. My W9 with a 42" flat top (cat 3406E) and my frameless dump which is 11,200, full of fuel with me in it is right at 30,200 on my empty weight, but I don't live out of my truck so I don't have to much personal stuff in it either.
     
    Coffey, Muddydog79 and stuckinthemud Thank this.

    They have no real weight limit in the end-dump division. Of course the more you can haul the better. I run a 96 W9 studio with a MAC smooth side frameless like they have and sit around 32,000.

    Their hopper division does have a weight limit. You must be able to haul at minimum 50k.

    I've done a lot of research on Bruce Oakley and from what I understand they want end dumps to haul at least 45K, easy for just about any truck. Don't take my word for it though...
    I went back to my previous career (sales), but I will return to trucking some day. And it will be Bruce Oakley end dump. Hopefully.

    They just announced a pay increase. $.05 on the yearly bonus and $.05 on loaded miles. May want to look at it yourself, but that’s what I read. Go to their Facebook pages or Instagram. I live near them and I hear a lot of good stuff about their pay and ability to keep drivers running. I think they try to get the drivers 2,000-2,500 miles per week. End dump will have % pay on some of their local runs. If you wanted to stay out, I’d think they’d get you miles above 2,500.
