Yard dog took off out of the dock without being hooked up. So it slid off the back of the truck.
James Bell (9 months ago)
These private companies that assign yard drivers get what they deserve. So many locations have inexperienced drivers at these dc but yet they wont hire an otr driver looking to come off the road. I almost got a yard driving gig in 2015 but after looking at the hours and compensation it really wasnt that much better than being otr

Most of the positions I have seen would be a big pay cut for me. Thanks for the view though.

This happened one night to a guy I was workin with. the fifth wheel was to low and missed the king pin but he did the tug test before he took off and thought he had it but took a turn and the trailer slid right off the fifth wheel

Didn't raise his 5th wheel and tore legs off when he pulled trailer.
RedBearded T (7 months ago)
No, he didn't have the fifth wheel locked in.
vistalite 1972 (1 year ago)
It could have been the 5th wheel jaws going bad or are bad. These yard trucks drop and hook all day sometimes 24 hours. Sometimes a simple adjustment, other times a complete 5th wheel rebuild. So its not always the drivers fault

Yard dogs be rude when you step into Company premises. They act like they own the property and act like they the shit with they two axle vehicle when they back up....
runtz69able (7 months ago)
Well personally myself I try not to be rude to the truck drivers when they come on our yard because I know that 99% of them on the road now we're trained by somebody that didn't know how to drive to begin with so it's not all their fault but a lot of them are just flat lazy and act like it's my job to clean up after them and it's not good yard drivers keep their yard nice and orderly and everything in a certain place so they can find it later on also we like to know exactly what's on the trailer you brought in if there was any damage on the trailer you brought in and where it's getting dropped at since we have people coming our place and drop 45000 lb on thin asphalt then it sinks to its belly. Yes sometimes we get a laugh watching drivers try to back into a dock which is their job cuz if you can't drive it backwards you have no business driving it forward and I promise I can do it as well in a row Brig as I can in the yard truck however I will not jump in your truck and move your trailer because I'm not going to be responsible for anything you did to that truck before it got to my yard

Ive had jaw fail on a brand new yard truck , after tugging 20 times trying to get brakes to release dropped a severly overloaded trailer, 76,000# and broke it in 3 peices, drove the landing gears clear through the floor. It was brutal !!!!Shit Happens!!! That trailer wasnt very heavy or those wimpy forklifts wouldnt have picked it up
runtz69able (7 months ago)
@Jolsen I had a trailer come in last week I have no idea how they got from Twinsburg Ohio to Wichita Kansas without getting busted for overweight but it was so heavy that the yard truck didn't want to pick it up I pulled it up on the scale set it down and drove out from under it the trailer and contents weighed 69 880 that was a dry van 53-foot we have them come in that way all the time I know what's supposed to be on them I played the over-the-road game for 30 years before I decided to become a yard jockey
Jolsen (1 year ago)
runtz69able not sure because I used to pick up 45,000lbs with dry vans all the time. And 42,000 with my reefer. But yes you are right. Different trailers way vastly different from each other. So what one truck and trailer can hual another one would be way over weight.
runtz69able (1 year ago)
Jolsen Most dry vans is about 41,000 Max and reefers are usually about 40 depending upon how heavy the trailer is But I've had local haulers bring in a trailer from a local storage Warehouse with steel parts on it and struggle to pick it up with the yard jockey and dragging across the scale only to find out that there's that the trailer weighs 70000 lb
Jolsen (1 year ago)
runtz69able they usually load 42,000 on each trailer. But yeah shit happens.

not much concern about safety, those forklift have no idea of the weight they are dealing with, seems to be no leadership, cordon off the area and assess the situation and plan the action! sure, they got, but next time someone may get crushed.

Insurance companies aren't happy about them using fork lifts instead of a towing service . Better safe then sorry.

Why do all of you think this is such an uncommon event. Spend some time in a bigger terminal and you see these trailers drop off the goats quite often. It’s just a piece of equipment. It has its flaws.

RedBearded T (7 months ago)
@charger master Not even close, it's a hard job with heavy safety practices. Most require 2 years OTR experience, though some are just 1 year. At my job, 3 safety failures is termination, including not chocking the wheels every time you get out of the truck, not using headlights, etc. If you hit another trailer, you're out.
RedBearded T (7 months ago)
@runtz69able Yep, I left OTR to a yard driver job, I'm home every day, off on the weekends and I make more money, some of the yard driver on the lot do some weekends and 20-30 hours of overtime a week, making $90,000+ a year, I get some overtime, maybe 10 hours a week max, so I don't make as much, but it lets me have a life during the week.
runtz69able (1 year ago)
charger master Yeah that's cuz most yard hostler jobs don't pay worth a crap I came in off the road 10 years ago after 36 years and I didn't sacrifice much pay to be a yard jockey and I get to sleep at home in my own bed at night guess it just depends on who you work for not a hard job but it can be pretty demanding at times. At a big facility you can do more backing and trailer docking in one week than most drivers do in a career
charger master (1 year ago)
Running On Empty I mean most people do yard hostling for a quick buck and nothing else.

Seriously, how fast are you going in a damn parking lot to drop a trailer and buckle the landing gear? It's not a race, people.

Victor Massano (2 years ago)
This is what NOT to do,this is a gross violation of safety procedures and the plant supervisor should have hired a heavy towing company to safely support the casualty while the company had a tractor backed underneath the damaged trailer
runtz69able (7 months ago)
Oh God not another safety preacher how the hell are we going to control the overpopulation of the world if we worry about safety I mean we do have to thin the herd somehow

Yeah lets not tug test it or anything
runtz69able (7 months ago)
@R S Well I figured you probably knew the drill
R S (7 months ago)
@runtz69able yeah, I know the procedure, back up, identify your rear most drive in accordance to three height of the bottom corner of the trailer, (if trailer is above tire by an obvious amount) get out and lower, (if trailer is right on that 5th wheel) drop air bags just incase, etc.
runtz69able (7 months ago)
@R S Rule number two don't High hook Rule number three don't drive a yard truck that has a shity Fontaine fifth wheel cuz they do suck if it doesn't say Holland I don't want to touch it

A learning experience that caused no real harm. I bet he never does it again. We deal with shit like this all the time. We all make mistakes.
Katmandu2 (6 months ago)
I'm a yard dog and did this once myself. There was real harm.... actually $1,000s worth. The landing gear was snapped off the bottom of the trailer. This driver (and I) FAILED to do a proper tug test. This accident (like mine) most likely happened by the switcher partially high hooking the trailer. What this means is the kingpin got stuck ON TOP of the 5th wheel. There's enough pressure pushing down on the 5th wheel to allow the trailer to be pulled.... a short distance. Eventually, the trailer slips OFF the 5th wheel and this is the result. Believe you me, I (and this switcher) will never fail to do a PROPER tug test again.
Les Brown (3 years ago)
Shit happens. That is as far as it goes where I work.
southernragenga (1 year ago)
Les Brown. It's happend to me before I did my tug test 2nd day on the job as a yard dog and the trucks transmission wasn't in propper working order so even though it seemed like it was hooked it wasn't and it dropped before I could get it stopped popped an airline was the extent of the phisical damage and hurt my ego luckily noone was around but I called my big boss right away and then my supervisor and by the time I got up to the shop I was good and embarrassed but learned a valuable lesson that these trucks are heavy duty and now I make sure to give it tug 2 times instead of thinking im gonna tare it up if I tug too hard! And I drove for Budweiser and 7up for years before becoming a yard dog when you are running 100 trailes a day it aint like all these over the road "professional" drivers think. Its fast paced and accidents happen just like forklift drivers. When you drive over the rd or even locally your only hooking and un hooking a few times hear and there you try that all day for 10 hrs and think your not vonna have an accident your crazy. My family owns a large trucking company and I've been around "super truckers" my whole life and they all talk crap when someone has an accident but it can happen to the best of the best!
