Not a good idea to “John Wayne” the landing gear handle like in this video if you like your teeth! Plus it’s much safer to just hold the handle and turn while bracing yourself with other against trailer! 🤔

That looks like a pain even in fair weather on a paved surface during daylight hours.

That two trailer are small. Why they have to make it two trailers instead of a one whole size of a semi trailer. Basically that double trailers is considered only as the whole normal size of a regular semi trailer. It doesn't make sense. Your just only making your job harder. I will be much impress if the double or triple trailers in America is just like the one in Australia what they called the ROADTRAINS.

Well done video. In the winter though, it would be a lot tougher job wrestling the dollies on slippery ground.

Yeah some drivers don't necessarily follow the "check trailer to see if PH is in there". I've been loading before and they back up into it which jostles the trailer around a bit.

Good informative video. Thanx. A refreshers course for me. I've pulled doubles before, but never had to drop n hook. I'm hoping to be driving for Reddaway soon.I let my CDL expire a few years ago.. just need the Hazmat now. I've passed the other required endorsements already.

I used to be a DedEx Fround contractor 15 years ago...absolutely the worst....started at 3 pm, sometimes done at 11 pm or 12, and other days, the sun was coming up again...they didn't really care. Get home at 7 am, go to bed so I could wake up and do it all over again. Look at your pay settlement, not much difference between the 2.
I never had the guts to do it, but, I always admired the guys who could break doubles by releasing the pintle hook on the dolly and slide it out from under the rear trailer at the same time! It always looked great! Dolly bang the pavement. My luck, it wouldn't come out under the trailer all the way and be stuck up in the air!
Also, the guys who can back up doubles, turn them around...that is talent!
There just isn't any money in running for $1.40 a mile, I don't care what EdFex does for fuel supplement. Cost of repairs, insurance, tires just keep going up.
I have my own authority and haul my own freight. Much better off.

Here in Mich. if your a gravel train driver we have to hook tandem axle Jo-dogs to our leads then back them under the pup. That takes awhile to get remotely good at. A 9 ft. Spread on the pup gets us 161k everyday no permits day in day out. Unlike road trains.We have to back up with our doubles.

This is a great video if you work out of terminals. But if you are heading out with a set of joints full of freight going to some obscure warehouse, the set up may be different. There are a lot of little tricks you need to know. For example, if you are dropping your trailer on a curbed street be sure to drop your trailer with the front of the trailer nosed out from the curb a ways. If you drop it straight against the curb then when you go to back under the trailer it will slide toward the curb because the crown of the road surface will cause the landing gear to slide up against the curb. When that happens your duals will run into the curb and you will never be able to line up the kingpin into the center of the fifth wheel. When that happens you have to call a tow truck ($400.00 in 1974), to come and lift the front of your trailer back away from the curb so you can get under the trailer to hook up. One of several expensive lessons I learned the hard way during my trucking career. Nobody ever told me Jack.

I've been working for FedEx for 25 years. And it's shocking to me that all the truck drivers on here that missed the one thing he missed on the pre-trip. That was obvious as someone putting a live chicken in the cab your truck. There's no way you could pull these doubles down the road like this legally. Let's do a challenge let's see who notices what's wrong with this set of doubles and why you can't pull it down the road the way it is? I will tell you what it is if someone doesn't see it in the next couple days. It's a safety violation.

That is one very complex, labor intensive way of having a splittable truck & trailer combo !
In the Uk this is illegal, we are only allowed one articulation in a formation.
Instead of two trailers we have one rigid & one drawbar or A frame trailer.
The drawbar units usually come with demountable boxes front & rear, these can be dropped on a loading dock, loaded then picked up.

Good training video....only critique is to not spin handle while rolling up landing gear.
Place one hand on trailer for support and roll up slowly. Too easy to loose grip and slip or hit yourself with the spinning handle.

Make note. If your dolly that you pick has a problem. Please "RED TAG" the dolly. Note/state problem on Red Tag. Also let your dispatcher know that there is a problem with the dolly. Also goes for the trailers. Don't have RED TAGS? Ask your dispatcher/local maintenance shop. It makes my job a lot easier know what's wrong with the equipment and not just someone red tagging a dolly or trailer so NO ONE can us it. Thanks!!!

Peter Albers (6 months ago)
Its strange to see so much room between truck and trailer. In the netherlands we move our 5th wheel much closer to the cabin. This is probably because of our length regulations. Truck/trailer maximum length is 15.5 meters. Driving a double trailer, its 25.25 meters. there is also a categorie that is aloud to be 18 meters. But i am not sure how it is called in english.

Seems pointless to still use that method, one big trailer can take more then both of those.
