EdsTowing Posted July 23, 2022 Share Posted July 23, 2022 From September 2009: Phil & I did this one the other morning. It was a little uncommon being a reefer pup and had 6,000 in the nose. The jockey pulled it away from the door & unhooked as per their policy. As soon as he pulled out from under it, it plummeted to the ground. It has a front stand but it went too quickly. The trailer was like 2 weeks old and the driver told me it was the second time it had happened! Sorry, no recovery pics but right after we arrived, the big bosses & district safety manager came out to see the commotion. Trying to work quickly & efficiently! The job took less then 15 min and we cradled the whole trailer with a strap to eliminate putting any scratches in it. Once up they put two trailer stands under it so I could get out of the way and back a power unit under it. The only damage was 1 landing gear foot was slightly bent. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
