wow they back up faster than they go forward on the highway ...freakin amazing..

it takes practice- and need clearance- works best on a downhill grade such as a unloading bay... backing a dolly on with a lead trailer is another skill that can save time- you hone these skills with yard time and space- I know I had fun....!!!

This is very difficult to do. A few guys can however back up a set to a door. I've seen it.

I'm a Yard Shifter at UPS (Texas).. My Father just retired 25 years safe driving at UPS and I have guys tell me stories about him backing doubles... I've only been driving 1 year (on the yard), but my job is to drive backwards.. I can back circles around the building if i wanted, and put a 35ft or a 28ft in a 6 inch gap on each side no problem (we have to do that to park inside the building on the airdocks).. but when it comes to backing a dolly, on the back of a pup, it gets away fast and there is alot of swinging to do.. I can't imagine a double set with 6 pivot points.. thats YEARS of experience, and the only way you get that experience is BALLS! "GOD Bless The Unions" is right! As my father always said about backing doubles, "6FT back, 2FT Forward... Keep the dolly straight... Repeat...". Some other things he said was, "Use ALL of the room available to you, no one will complain", "The first rule of backing is DON'T BACK", and "If it doesn't look like you just pulled out of it... You ain't gonna back it in there!" :)

It's not easy, but it's possible. I used to hook triples all the time but not in paved flat lots. 1 million personal 3 million team and 5 million team driving awards. Pity they only lasted 74 years in business.
The94GTC (4 months ago)
It's harder than it looks. I can back a dollie to hook up and that's hard enough
The94GTC (1 month ago)
Lee Huff when there is 8" of snow and ice on the lot it's not an option for me. That's the only way to hook up!
Lee Huff (2 months ago)
The94GTC I refuse to even try it. I figure they put that pintle hook on the back of the tractor for a REASON. Plus, I don't have time to piss with it, and I have about a half-second of patience on one of my rare good days!

As a "freight hauler" of 20+ years,,, nah it's not easy guys. (Backing doubles) I've seen yard guys that will blow your mind but they have a 6' yard mules too with the turning radius if a lawn mower but still it's fun to watch the vets.

if you are a otr driver you know how hard it is, so Mexican driver are the worst in the usa, trust me, they can't back up, they sleep in the exit ramp or rest areas

slimchancetoo Yea you would never want to reverse them but at some point you will probably have to for some unforseen circumstances.
slimchancetoo (5 months ago)
Well i guess if all the articulation points, turntables (fifth wheels) and Ringfeders were locked up and prevented from turning, and if the ground was flat and smooth it might just be possible to reverse them for a few meters (yards) or so. Not too many mind you - but maybe a few meters. Without this lock-up and perfect environment I doubt it would be possible to reverse more than 50 meters (yards) before the whole thing got out of line and started tying itself in knots. Mine sites -- particularly where these trains operate - are not known to be perfect environments. Apart from that -- why would you want to reverse them ???????? They are designed to go in one direction -- forwards. I believe that after 1,000,000 miles the reverse gears can be sold as 'brand new - never used'. !!
Ferguson101 (5 months ago)
slimchancetoo As long as the trailers are all straight I don't see why you couldn't. It's not he's trying to alley dock them.
slimchancetoo (5 months ago)
+Ferguson101 They do indeed - but never in REVERSE !!!!!!!!!!!!

zhentrix calipso They pull up to 6 trailers at mines in Australia they call them road trains.
St. Rawman (11 months ago)
And I thought my tight 180° back was impressive. this takes some skill. I understand getting out and filming that.
Denis Charbonneau (1 year ago)
Little bit easier with the B-Trains. Then, when you get good, you can actually do it with the A-Train. But every time you 'miss', (back jackknife) you have to pull forward to straighten them. Now if you move more terrain FORWARD then you're BACKING up, you are simply not able to do it... (Takes practice !)
G. Johnson (1 year ago)
Super job! In 40 years of primarly lowbed but many years of doubles, I have only backed up my doubles 1 1/2 truck lengths before I was in trouble. It is truly a site to behold when you see a professional driver accomplish this. This is a PROFESSIONAL DRIVER! Hats off.

we do it all the time ! even with double 48s its easier
slimchancetoo (1 year ago)
+Henry Jackson Yep - anybody knows that the longer the trailer, and the more axles and weight, the easier it is. The guy in the vid is skillfully backing up two short single axle trailers -- that takes skill.
Mat Lalaga (1 year ago)
us Australians back those trucks in any position easy.
Johny Bravo (6 months ago)
Hey Mate😎
heywood jablome (7 months ago)
backing a single axle set of pups is almost impossible. you would have to practice it all the time to be bad at it
slimchancetoo (10 months ago)
This guy is not backing up in a 'big city' - he is backing up in a paved parking area which may or may not be outside a 'Big City'. And the outback does count because there are not many paved parking areas out there - the ground can be pretty rough and it would not be possible to back this combination - ALL SINGLE AXLE UNITS - over it in a straight line. In fact you would be looking at the back doors of the second trailer pretty quickly if you tried.
Luis Lara (1 year ago)
I give this guy props, it ain't easy, I've tried it.

I worked for ups for 29 yeas , they never asked us to back up doubles. is not safe and it take a lot of time. And to unload them you have to break them up anyway.
joseandresreyes (3 years ago)
theres a reason these feeder drivers have a class a cdl license
floatpool (3 years ago)
backing them upto a bay between other trailers is a better trick. my fellow mule drivers used to challenge each other..one guy did triples to a bay (no other trailers beside him though)..of course a yard tractor is a bit easier than a regular tractor. they would never let mule drivers participate in the truck rodeos.

The secret is in the short wheelbase of the day cab. You can correct with pinpoint accuracy. Put that same driver in a W900L and watch what happens. I can back one pup and a converter dolly, but seldom have I ever successfully backed up a set. FedEx Ground, 1.5 Million safe miles.

With all SB I-65 lanes blocked just north of Merrillville, IN and INDOT having traffic back up to exit off, we heard this gem from a guy pulling a double. "I gotta license that says I can drive this thing but it don't say nothin 'bout backin it up". We still laugh about it 14 years later.

Kevin Bradley (4 years ago)
It's not easy with it being short, long, short, long sections and you easily lose sight of the dolly. I've had to do it a few times and once in the rain had to back out of a driveway into the street on a 90 turn. We actually have a female driver that can back a set to a dock door between trailers.
Jeff Panetta (4 years ago)
I know what ya mean. That almost happened to me a few weeks ago in Bethlehem PA looking for one of our drop yards at a Penske. went like 3 miles past the turn, driving down these real tight streets and finally found a spot to turn around behind this tiny lil gas station and I had 2 lift gate trailers and have no idea how I didn't smash those reefers or how I made the turn around.
