    I pulled approx 17,000 this morning off a pintle. Towed good, just took longer to get up to speed. Have a brake controller so stopping wasn't much of an issue.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Equally dumb, I pulled roughly 35k gooseneck from WY to SC. 75 was totally out of the question, the truck worked to do 65.

    I don't know the exact weight....but I can say that the rear leaf springs were flat, and the trailer tires looked half full, and weren't. The exhaust brake was sure handy.

    Yepper. I think it is a TA-75, made by United Tractor. Somebody else besides me that recognizes them. Slighty O/T but I saw a NC-8 in someones driveway the other day.
