Installed a gooseneck hitch last night and picked this up for my brother this morning. Never towed a gooseneck before, it's pretty sweet. Much nicer than a normal trailer.

Other than loosing the bed space when hooked up, I love towing with a goose/5th. 75-80mph down the highway steady as can be

I use it to push stuff around on the farm, but it would probably work great for that too

Been a long time since I saw you post. Is that the new hot shot rig?

Everything got parked Thanksgiving weekend 2019, running a company truck right now.. sucks but has turned into a blessing in disguise.. the LMM got parted out, still have all 3 frieghtliners, and that 3500HD.

Essential I've done a tactical retreat on the hotshot stuff... And the covid crap isn't helping lol

Company I was running for went South after the owner passed, went to another company, had issue with equipment safety department, telling me said rules in the rule book don't matter, and I said bye..

Yeah lots of equipment for sale, not mine, it's all paid for.

Currently work for environmental maintenance management company, ass class A driver, driving/operating presvacs mainly along with vac tanks and various roll off items.

Currently cleaning out sugar/flour silos are general mills plant so they can do maintenance

Cleaned this paint sludge tank Friday for pipe maintenance

Sorry to hear that you got out of the hotshot business. If it truly was a blessing for you, then I am happy for you.

Keep the paid off iron. Either you get back into it and will need it, or it cons you nothing to have it when you need it for something else.

I know one of the other members here runs AG, but I don't remember if its Owner Operator or if he drives for someone else.

On another note, is that 3500hd a gas engine? I remember you saying that is the one that made you the most per mile.
