    Wow! What a difference!!! I recently relocated from Washington State where I hauled food grade tankers to Arizona where I haul baffled tankers for a local Government agency. Let me say, what a luxury! It's like having the stress level of a box hauler again! What a change of life, why didn't I do this sooner, it this what I've been missing out on?

    The density (pounds per gallon) of the product, and the percent of innage/outage also makes a big difference - but in general, baffles are very nice to have. :)

    Don't let them baffles fool ya. It'll roll just as easy as a smooth bore if you don't treat it like a tanker. But they sure make stopping and going easier.

    It's really nice when you have baffles with bulkheads. You hardly feel the load.

    What really is frighting with what I haul is we do a lot of off road driving, my sphincter really puckers at some of the angles we take our trucks on. It is a nice luxury to have.
