    The only reason to run a 53 with the tandems all the way back is if your Werner. Apparently they are allowed. For the rest of us who cross state lines from time to time it is a embarrassing show of lack of detail to say the least.
     
    Friday and TennMan Thank this.

    So yesterday this happened
    20170716_161754.jpg

    So I dropped the trailer at Masterfleet, with a red tag to be repaired

    Get to PG and find my loaded trailer and find this 20170717_125146.jpg

    Same issue different trailer you ask? No, SAME MOTHER ####ING TRAILER!

    Fox River Fiber is screaming to get our empties off their lot, this douche ignores his work assignments and grabs the trailer I red tagged, rigs up a red neck fix that I'd be impressed with if he was trying to get to service, and drops it empty at a customer. Way to be an ###### #######.

    Simple cause and effect.
    Cause...Sni installed silly ratchet handle.
    Effect...Driver beats it senseless with hammer.
    You know how this works @gentleroger . Now stop being a drama queen, grab a pipe wrench, and get to work. Lol. All in fun of course.
    I picked up a loaded one time and 5 of 8 tires were bad. Even wingfoot couldn't believe it. A colostomy bag doesn't even describe this driver. Still amazed and somewhat irritated 2 years later.

    And both glad hand grommet's. This will usually confuse them enough to not even try.

    In a snowstorm I might be somewhat inclined to do that....

    That's sounds like the time one of our drivers broke down about 60 miles from the yard. A towing company towed another tractor out to him. It was out of fuel and had 3 flat tires.

    Agreed. But your not Werner. I pay attention to where tandems are set. Seems to be a strange pet peeve I have picked up. Idk. It bothers me terribly when I see them all the way back for no reason. Drives me crazy to be honest. All I can see is lazy.
     
    SingingWolf Thanks this.
