    The company I run for has only four high mount units. we all seem to have the same consistent gripe list. overhang and Bridge spread see pic) are the big ones and Frozen electric over hydraulic systems. Are these pretty standard problems industry-wide with high mount units? And what and are guys doing for Solutions

    The only guys who don't fight length and weight are running cars and small suvs. It's a matter of physics, you can't have that shallow kingpin depth and long tail without the rear taking too much load. Frozen electric/hydraulic is a maintenance issue, not checking for / draining off water.

    Run the heaviest crap in the front, whenever possible nose on first and maybe try running transmission fluid instead of hydraulic oil
