    Sometimes, when you’re a good human bean, other good beans offer you their findings.

    These 2 literally fell off a truck. He made several attempts to find the rightful owners, with no luck. They can go on the flat.

    These puppies are a bit scarce, and the only caliber I was short on. Thanks!

    I was only meant to go and get a truck wash, but it turned into a load. Well, half a load. 700 loaded. $7/mile on the board - or $2.60/mile all miles TTT if I deliver and DH home. Promise I’ll try to find a back haul.

    Does that really have hazmat in it? Reason I ask is if not you better cover those placards up.

    Flammable liquid, such as kerosene.

    Yea I don’t think so. You have to reach a certain weight first.

    If not cleaned out still needs placards on it. Truck does not but tank does

    Copied:

    If the tanks are “sufficiently cleaned of residue and purged of vapors to remove any potential hazard”, then no HazMat exists, placards are not required.

    You are correct sir.

    They all had a few gallons sloshing around in them. My question was whether or not I needed UN 1993 Class 3 placards on the truck, but 3 sources confirmed straight class 3 was ok.

    I even followed the HM routes so I didn’t turn up in another thread :)
