    Drawing a blank at the moment, wondering if someone could clarify the drawbacks of a standard container on a highcube chassis.

    I'm pretty sure a highcube on a standard chassis will result in the pins not locking correctly, and the pins can come loose from the can bouncing around (generally when empty, loaded the weight will restrict the bouncing) causing an insecure load.

    I could have it backwards?

    Got the answer

    The container ends up resting on the 5th wheel with the cross members straddling the 5th wheel. Reduces turning radius with potential to damage 5th wheel or flip a truck on a turn
