I even hauled my SR135 with my TL130 to a job last week. That is a time saver.
The only problem i have with pulling the 25 ton trailer, is that when it's slippery, it pushes me into a turn and then when I start to come out of the turn, it pulls the back of the truck to the inside of the turn. The 25 ton may end up behind the quad axle truck we are having put together, because it's a bit heavier than the KW T-800 that I pull it with now.

I want to see some more pics of this set up, looks awesome!!

Lets see the pic of your Mack!

On the trailer I am getting prices on a talbert and BWS 25 ton. Which both for just a regular tag look to be in the ball park of 27K ouch! I didn't even pay that for the truck!
I went with a tandem because I liked the shorter wheelbase. Plus in Jersey I can gross 70K and get 20 tons on this truck. Here they can't axle weigh me and give me a ticket only if I'm over gross weight.

My 99 Mack RD Dump 400 HP 13 SPD 14' box Pintle w/air to the rear. I don't have a picture with the tag trailer. Been so busy with snow I finally got some time this week to drop it to get lettered.

That's a sweet truck, I could gross 20 ton if they didn't do the axle trick here.

Nice equipment! My favorite pictures are dump trucks towing equipment. I hope to next year add a 135/314 machine to my fleet.

Thanks Nedly.... Unfortunately, we have been going almost 7 days a week since just before Thanksgiving. Spent today cleaning, waxing and polishing the KW.... the wheels and tanks will be done once our Sterling Quad gets finished. We had over 143" of snow this year... so busy is an understatement.
