    Been looking for a reasonably price pup trailer to go with the 379 dump truck. Found one just outside of St. Louis. Aluminum with air ride, is what I wanted and patience, paid off. Needs tires, new wet line and acidized. Get some better pics today. CA6FE712-A5AC-4640-AE57-017B5D8866D9.jpeg

    Always enjoyed pulling a pup. Always for fuel though, most people thought I was nuts, lol. Guaranteed no body was gonna use the truck and trailer on my days off!!

    Yeah, that kinda the sentiment around these parts, too. Used to be a pup behind a dump truck was common place(80’s) but folks quit them and went to 4,5 and 6 axle trucks. I’ve never been one to follow a trend so, even though my truck has extra axles, I’m adding a pup and gonna haul 25T per hitch.

    Does the lead axle pivot? That's quite a spread, never seen one like that before.

    Almost certain that truck and pup, will be around 29,700. Total wheel base of the two when connected is 60’.

    All the pups I have pulled had steerable fronts. I guess when you look at what you have there, it’s about the same distance between the wheels as a ‘spread axle’ trailer.

    That doesn’t look anything remotely close to something that would haul puppies. You dump guys are strange. :biggrin_2559:
     
    Opus, Numb and Speedy356 Thank this.
