  1. Pictures of the Week

    OD, Next time that happens to you throw your load chains on the ground. Toss them under the tires laid out in a "S" pattern and ease up on them. Works somewhat like tire chains in a pinch. .....Hippy

  10. truck accident caused by elogs

    Frame style dump trailers are not to difficult to repair if they have gone over gently. A twisted frame can be saved with two large front end loaders. Raise the tub and block it up at a 45' angle, remove the piston, 1st loader puts down pressure on the tub over the tailgate to hold the trailer in place. 2nd loader comes in from the side over the 5th wheel plate on the high side of the twist. Chain from the 5th wheel pin to the bucket, roll the bucket back beyond what looks as if the frame is straight. Release the tension and check the frame, you may have to shorten the chain and twist it again. lf it looks correct put the piston back in and run the tub up and down a few times to see how it dumps. We did this several times back in the early 70's when l worked at a trailer shop. ............Hippy

    lf you can't get it to open. Click on the Snapchat link then look at the very lower left of your screen. Click on that one and the short video should play. Anything beyond this non technical info from me that works is only $hit luck. .........Hippy
