A friend is trying to separate the tractor from the trailer of his 1954 Maxim aerial. If anyone has done this we could use some advice on what to look out for. Specifically, what is the best place to jack the trailer?

I just went and looked at our tillers. They are not king pins. You will have to remove all the bolts. Counted like twenty or more around it, and atleast 3/4 or more in size. Guys inthe shop said you will atleast need a 1 inch impact with big compressor to break them free.

Mike, his primary concern is where to jack it. Another mutual friend saw this on the board and called me. He has done it before, so we should be good. Thanks for the help.

Just use the outriggering system that used for raising the ladder. place heavy blocks under the pads so you have lift of the tractor then manually lift the trailer up so you can start to disconeck the bolts and the wires that go to all the lights that are in the turntable [ or 5th wheel ] plus the ground strap. When free from the turntable [but still under the trailer] then add more support to the main rails of the trailer. Lift it just enough to clear .

That's a bit ironic; it is the same model as the one we are doing. You will be on the "What in the hell are we doing wrong" call list.

How are the trailer brakes activated on your rig?
