    Pup trailers have a setup like that on the back where the dolly attaches.

    For some reason though, pintle hitches are frowned upon in Europe.

    well this one make more sense for sure.

    that is largest drawbar low loader trailer i have seen/heard for. there are just few 6 axle build (i know for 3).
    Trailer and D10 will weight 212k lbs. to pull that you need well loaded 6x6 tipper, you have total weight of about 290k for machine that weights 172k, also you are way too high for most roads.
    5axle trailers are very marginal if they make any sense. if you are going to pay for permit than not. if you are driving during night maybe yes.

    I searched for my quote, but couldn't find it. The company that came up with Diesel Force was Lyden Oil Company. I emailed them about more information about a year ago and they come out and conducted a free demo. My memory is fading, but the kit consisted of two jugs of the foaming agent, the jug of oil system cleaner, a fuel injector cleaner, and a fuel treatment. The hoses hooked up where the EGR Delta pressure sensor was and you idle the truck and let it "foam" up entire intake and exhaust. One module hooked to EGR valve and other to VGT and it sweep them while doing the cleaning. After cleaning you run a stationary Regen. Then add your oil cleaner which is a lot of detergent to clean up the the crap and run it for another twenty and dump in your injector cleaner and fuel treatment. Change your oil when done. I pulled it apart after to inspect and it did a fairly good job of cleaning up EGR cooler and intake. Pulled DPF to send out for cleaning and it didn't nasty up the face of DOC or DPF. The foaming agent was water based so it doesn't increase temps when running Regen like some solvent based ones out there. Think unit was around $3,000 and kits around $400 and modules $400. Couldn't get boss to see ROI.

    Even if you don't like the style ,it is worth taking a look at the quality off workmanship that went into building it.
