Thanks JEBar.



Max Power, I have towed alot in the 3500's life time. Not as much as Broker though. Name it.....I've probably hauled it.


Tsckey, the thread is not about me. Looking at one pic is boring, more is better. Just trying to show alittle of everything that I have pics of. An RV is an RV. Everyone has seen them. Save those pics for the RV forum. Nothing against them....I even owned a 28 ft 5th wheel.


I would still like to see some HEAVY load pics from you guys (& gals).

Not a Dmax but the tractor width was over 9' wide, automatic oversized load. This was the first semi I drove load and all. Didn't bother to get any miles on empty first.

25 or so years ago, my dad told me to take a load of shelled corn up to the local feed mill. We had a 73 C-30 Chevy with a 8x12 flat bed and 4 foot grain sides. We had added a stronger helper spring to the rear as well as a 3 leaf helper to the front. It had the 350, 4 speed, 4.56 gears and G rated tires. I started filling the truck and watched the rear wheels-bed clearance. The truck got full before anything bottomed out so I drove the three miles to the elevator and unloaded. The weight slip came back at 13,900 pounds of corn.


The heaviest load I ever towed was a wagon load of green pin oak logs. Five logs 14" to 26" diameter and 14 feet long. They were loaded on a flat bed wagon on a Cobey tandem/tandem 20 ton running gear. We added two ton of gravel to the truck as ballast. I had to go about 20 miles to get to the sawmill. I never weighed it but the truck ran out of power at 35 mph in third gear on flat roads.


The things we did when we were young and stupid!

Don't forget to put the landing gear up!


And where do you hook up air hoses?

The air hoses, etc. are integrated via an invisible 15-stage air filter bypass system ensuring a "clean" air supply is delivered with no water accumulation, contaminents, etc. :)

Here's one for you. Not my Dmax, but the truck it replaced. That's a JD 5500 with a Howard HR30 rotavator. When the front end loader is on the tractor, the trailer tandems scale out at 10,100.

Heavy enough for a DuraMax? 12 Bags weighing around 2200-2400 lbs each. Do this about twice a week this time of year.

The Duramax sure pulls it better then my old 2000 with the 454 did. Edited by: dutch
