    Wouldn't derating trucks result in over load tickets? For example derating a 12k lb trailer to 9999

    Okay I understand derating to stay under cdl. But if you carry the same loads, youd be completely illegal, cdl or not. Correct?

    You would only be illegal if you broke the law

    And the discussion goes back to trucks :laugh:

    Sounds like it'd be pretty funny to see a bunch of disgruntled contractors getting more and more angry at what the presenter was saying.

    I never understood why someone would spend $60k for a work truck.
