    Aren't the dollies already too short for double 45's?

    Do you guys in Feeders say, "Hello Dolly"?

    It's so nice to have you back where you belong
    You're looking swell, Dolly,
    We can tell, Dolly,
    You're still glowin', you're still crowin'
    You're still goin' strong.
    We feel the room swayin'
    For the band's playin'
    One of your old fav'rite songs from 'way back when

    I can't see the company spending the extra $4500.00 per unit. Never seen them spend any money they didn't have to.

    Should be interesting when they break. Imagine pulling into a hub and the dolly doesn't expand like it should and you make a sharp turn. I suppose they'll say you should have expected the unexpected when you roll the set.

    HELL NO! Too complex. What's a "cyclinder" anyway?

    I'd imagine just a beefier version of a hydraulic cylinder found in shocks.

    Wish I had a dollar for every bent dolly tongue I've seen.

    No. We use a regular dolly when pulling double longs. You just have to swing very wide because they will pinch corners.

    Double longs are easier and more stable to pull then short doubles. Like pulling a couple of army tanks. Triples are easier to get around with,but more "wiggly" going down the pike.

    Interesting. I think just once it'd be nice to pull triples, even around the lot. We aren't allowed to, though :(

    Same here. What I want to know is I see others(FedEx freight,Walgreens) on the highway pulling longs and they all seem to have eight wheel dollies. Can someone explain why?

    I would think its for weight distribution . Holland uses tandem dollys as well. Freight is definitely heavier in most cases then parcel.

    That's actually what I meant. Too short to make tighter turns.

    Ok that makes sense.
