Dog Trailer Behind 350Hp R Model


Recommended Posts

this question may only make sense to aussie members but i am thinking about buying a two axle dog trailer to go behind a 84 2vh 350hp r model tipper.As a tandem it gets along well enough with 12 ton on it but will i kill it with the trailer towing another 13 or so.i have seen later model value liners which i assume to be 350hp 4 valve heads pulling dogs but are they killing their trucks or do they do it easy., i have never been able to talk to these blokes as i have never worked with them. I have been told by a old school trucker that a 350 mack is the equivelent of a 400 cummins, is this true or a old wives tale.

Another 13 tons wont hurt your 350 at all. Remember that those engines get along just fine here in the states pulling 36 tonnes all the time. Some applications have them pulling even more. And in the US/Canada we don't normally run dog trailer setups like you boys do, but we have similar setups such as transfer trailers and pup trailers.
