Knuckle Up

Recommended Posts

Topic Created by morrisandsons in February of 2012:

 

Got a call to tow this 3 axle Knuckle Crane, and with my luck it figures that it had severe air leaks, so cage the 4 cans off, hook up 0222121747.jpg0222121746.jpg0222121720.jpg, drop shaft, lights and nice 60 mile tow to shop, truck picked it easy...

She rode real nice, I had plenty of FAW. My guess I was picking all of 20k, and I haven't done the math, but I would bet that I still had 8-9k or so on my steer (empty I got 15)

just wondered how she transfered the weight. i know those type of trucks are heavy up front

The big highway dips were interesting sometimes... I REALLY like the underreach on this truck, it makes my job easy having 135" of reach, I upgraded from a 4024...

Hey Art, noticed how you have it chained, do you put a boomer under your underreach to snug up the chains?  If so, this is the same way I do it, but i started to put my chains inside the springs.  When i used to put them where you have them, every once in a while going around a corner I could feel movement.  Now there is none.

I normally try to grab those from the rear if they have a big front end in them.
