Can a p1200 or a p32 pull a pup trailer???
Please don't give anyone any crazy ideas.
My understanding was that a P12 (which I used to drive) made a too long combo when coupled to a TP-60.
I always had to switch to a P10 during Peak when I needed a TP-60.
lol, Im sure all drivers will be delivering out of semis before you know it...
how can a package car pull a pup? thats not possible
I have heard some package drivers call a TP-60 a "pup" incorrectly. A pup is a 26' trailer. I have never pulled a TP-60. but I have only seen them behind P700s, P800s, and a P1000. I have some pics of some of these in my profile albums.
yea a pup is a 28 foot semi trailer complete with a kingpin i dont see too many package cars with 5th wheels
Sure, bring the package car to Jesse James "monster Garage", bolt on a custom made fifth wheel hitch, install air compressor/ lines/valves/ knobs, beef up the suspension, drivetrain and brakes, drop in a heavy duty medium size diesel engine with at least 250 to 1000 hp, when all said and done, pay Jesse, couple up, raise the landing gears, attach airlines and electrical, apply air to release brakes in the trailer, and your good to go...
My center won't let us pull with bigger than a 800.
how about hook a trailer dolly to the back of the package car, then couple a pup to the dolly
it looks legal to me...especially with no air lines or electrical
Let's see STUG, Coldwater posted this at 1:23pm today (Sun)....did you put your uniform on, drive to your Center, hook up a trailer,take a picture, return home, download this picture just for this thread? All in about 35 minutes?...lol...your like Speedy Gonzalez....
I used to pull a TP-60 w/ an 800. Then my route blew out so they gave me a 1000. I didn't mind the power steering and automatic. I thought I'd loose the TP-60 but then they put a hitch on it. It lasted until PAS then they made changes and I don't haul it anymore.
Hint : Don't go into the photography or photo retouching industry......EVER!!!
haha yea it does look pretty bad
But it was ingenius....consider it a rough draft.....
Yeah, really, really rough.
the worst part is that trailer will have to stay coupled to the dolly cuz i accidentaly cropped out the landing gear
hopefully an engineer will fix that design flaw before they start mass producing
Yes it was. I have forwarded a copy to Corporate, and taken credit for the idea!!!
just wait til you see my design for double and triple trailers you will be amazed
you will be able to hold enough packages to work 72 hour shifts
We were told the same thing Steve. Only 700 or 800 can pull a trailer.
