Now thanks to the nys dot I had to add a 20,000 lb steerable drop axle to compelment the 58,000 rears and the 20,000 front axle, the good news is now I can gross 79,000 lbs,the bad news is it cost me a whole bunch of money that sure could have used on something else.I had to give up the passenger fuel tank for a hyd tank and switch my rear mounted pto which i loved to a pain in the ass side mount pto pump combo that was quite picey,still have to get the right rims and tires,more money!post-598-0-69435600-1422632503_thumb.jpgpost-598-0-69435600-1422632503_thumb.jpg

Didn't NYDOT tell us it would be a minimal cash out lay to meet their new regs. . .

Cha ching. Looks good though.

Loosing that pass. tank, likely cut your fill up distance in half! One 40 gal tank won't get you far.

Its a 70 gallon tank,still have to fuel up every day but thats the way I been doing it,to much troube moveing the truck to the other side of the pump.

In okla we have to have ten feet between the steer axle and the first drop axle to be legal.How much can you gross with that now?

Once I renew my permit in a couple months I can gross 79000 but I wont be loading it that heavy.

Of course they did,lol but there not getting there hands on my grandfathered overweight permit and I know they want them!

NYDOT is now working on legislation for ALL farm vehicles AND towed farm equipment to have NYDOT numbers. A few of the questions asked at the public meeting in Hauppogue was does that mean you will need to have a CDL to operate it? Will they need NYS registration and HUT? The mouth piece said "we are studying those items". It's all $$$$$

I have heard some rumblings about needing a CDL to operate farm equipment on the road in other states also. I don't know if any legislation

has been passed yet but I know the farmers were screaming about it because many have kids or hired help under age 18 that would not be

allowed to move the equipment. I heard they might have an exemption for family but not hired help. It's all ridiculous. For the trucking industry

that was supposedly "deregulated" back in the day the Feds, states, county's, and towns have sure found a way to re-regulate every thing

that is done out here under the name of safety. I call B.S. I agree, all about the $$$$$$$$ and how much they can squeeze from us.

Looks Good 79,000 Is what we can gross on a tri axle here in TN Too .

Funny thing is here around Memphis being a tri state area . You can legally carry 24.5 tons of material w/ a tri axle In TN . BUT Across the state line in MS OR AR its only like 15 tons of material. w/ a Tandem or Tri axle either one . But back in the day We worked around the TN/MS Stateline around Olive Branch & Southaven,MS w/ a Tandem & i wouldnt be surprised if myself,the old man & crew wasnt grossing 79,000 w/ a tandem the way we loaded the trucks . We rarly crossed the river into AR W/ Our Trucks .

nd is bridge law up to a maximum of 105,500

62

so a tandem dump with a 20k front would roughly be 54k maximum tri axle dump with a 20k front would be roughly 62k max

these numbers of course would be subject to actual measurements as well

on 7 axles tractor trailer with a 12k front i can do 96k can legally haul 29.3 tons

Um, TN is 74000 on a triaxle, not 79000, and if your on the interstate they are starting to watch bridge law which puts most triaxles around 53000#. Of course this is around middle TN but the state shows 66000# on a tandem, 74000# on a triaxle and 80,000# on a quad or 5 axle truck and trailer.

Hey MACKS, where did you find a steer tag that has the tie rod and stabilizers on the front, thought they were always on the back of the axle.

Ok, I've been looking at Hendrickson composilite lift axles, I like the way their tie rod and mounts are set up. I've never seen one with the steering stabilizers on the front, always on the back just looked odd. Good luck with the truck, I always wondered why you northeast guys had such short trucks anyway, seems you would fill the bed before you made gross and hauling by the ton would suck.

Thanks for the correction bud . :twothumbsup: guess i had a brain fart .. :loldude:

I Know some that will carry 79,000 W/ the tri axles here around the backwoods . & i herd by a buddy that has a tri axle Vulva of his own that is leased on w/ 1 of the big paving companies in Memphis they were starting to watch the bridge laws Here . & we are starting to see a few quads here around Memphis . 1 of the big paving companies has Quad axle Sterlings here .

& When we had our tandems we worked in the backwoods of the Millington, & Tipton county area & my old man would load like a tri axle & heap dirt up as long as he was in the backwoods But if we were on the interstate or running the highways he would load the trucks no more than 19 to 20 tons of material make sure he was under 66k & have the load under the side boards & tarp pulled back .

Last time out west I think those 5 axles can do 94 and Change.

Mack I think Ar changed there weights to 70K on a tridem. But the tires and axles must match or be rated. Was talking to Jacob about that and he said it is raised now
