Properly Secured Tractor on Trailer

Postby Urbish » Thu May 02, 2019 6:06 am

I saw this on the internet today and thought I'd share. I'm not sure what happened here or why the trailer separated from the truck towing it, but at least the tractor appears to be properly secured. :shock:

That's my goal every time I load something. If, God forbid, something goes wrong, when the dust clears I want whatever is left still strapped to the trailer.

I saw this yesterday on another website and they had this posted with it.

Notice how far the rear tires are behind the rear axle of the trailer, no wonder it was whipping, it had no tongue weight.
