If he was out of air, then how would unhooking the trailer help, unless I'm missing something.
TRUCKER 2CHAINS (2 days ago)
At first he wasn't out of air. The plan was to disconnect his truck so I could move his trailer... I wasn't aware he also had a air leak along with a blown motor...

I had a drive shaft drop coming out of a location with an old tractor and empty trailer. Of course a cop was there getting pissed I parked blocking a lane. Gee officer look at part laying on ground. Oh he says. Than I see one of our steel hauler s go by loaded and knew he would be back by empty. He finally stops on return , he say s "I have no chain" but by that time Im pulling a strap off a roller. Trick is to at least double it and be smooth it wount break , thank s I say and cop leave s . Oh yeah have 90 psi!

I started my career 38 years ago before trucking school in heavy duty tow trucks. On every corner. Better call your garage and see if that pull start is ok.Some of the Volvo’s have ridiculous pull limits with out motor running. The front oil pump in trans isn’t turning and can burn up a trans in a heart beat. If you pull a truck with a high mileage transmission might not damage it but if something is already wrong with it and you can’t prove it your buying that man a new 10- 15k trans.Look at service warning on Volvo I shift. It states they prefer you pull driveshaft to even pull it off the road to hook up.

Always use chains, why would you try straps ?
TRUCKER 2CHAINS (9 days ago)
Did you notice, until his brakes locked up ( which I didnt know at the time ) I moved his truck several feet... I have pulled more with less. It wasn't until his brakes locked up that the straps broke. Also, I used what I had on me.. there wasn't time or a desire on my part to go shopping for the "proper" equipment...

Brakes dont lock up due to an air leak but whatever
TRUCKER 2CHAINS (3 months ago)
When the air pressure is below 60psi the brakes are applied... Is air pressure had bled down to 0psi. Trucker2chains

I work on these trucks every day the "air leak brakes locked up" is nonsense he hit the brakes because he was scared

I cant even remember all the truckers Ive helped that were broke down in the last 20 yrs but its been quite a few. From stuck in the snow, dropped trailers, out of fuel, broken air lines and on and on. I keep up with my maintenance and repairs so Ive only been stranded a few times but I can honestly say in 20 yrs not once did another trucker ever offer to help me in any way. So much for "Good Kharma"

This is exactly why I carry a couple tow straps. The load straps aren't meant for this kind of load. I too have pulled out more with less, but eventually you break enough less and should just buy the tow staps.

next time you go and try to help someone move and the air is down. pull beside the truck and hook both of the emergency (red) airlines that go to the trailer together and push in both the trailer parking brakes. some may have to hold the button in. This is a way to air the truck up to release the brakes. May take a little while but it will work. Old mechanic's trick when you dont have a wrench hehehe.
NHA Marketers (9 months ago)
@TRUCKER 2CHAINS Ah, copy that
TRUCKER 2CHAINS (9 months ago)
I meant after " helping" for just over a hour, I had to go... I was aware of the air trick just had spent too much time there and the air thing didnt happen till the end... Just FYI. The leaving the city thing isnt true... if the brakes are pushed in and you are in control of a moving vehicle you should be on the driveline... On the property of shipper/reciever you can generally get around that... If you get into a accident or pulled over for whatever reason and your NOT on the driveline its your Butt in a Sling !!!

Atleast you tried but it seems there was a greater force at work here. .. see most including yourself look at this as a fail but please listen closely with an open mind okay ... This was an act of God and I can almost prove it... you being the guy you are trying to help and all wasn't failing but was actually succeeding ... GOD almighty arranged this divine intervention for you to be held up instead of going down the road which kept you out of an unfortunate circumstance (wreck) in which you or some other person may have died or both ... No sir, this was not an epic fail but a glorious success ... thank our Heavenly Father and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that this event took place ... be safe be happ but most of all be blessed in Jesus Christ name. ..

At least you tried. When I drove for WERNER my home dropyard had a gravel parking in the back. There was a big rut in the back corner and loaded trucks got stuck all the time. We called it the mine field cause it swallowed your drives. I went and bought a tow chain so I could help out newcomers to the yard as they were more likely to get stuck.

I am a school bus driver right now, but am thinking of going into trucking, I watch these kinds of videos as a means of seeing how accidents occur with trucks and how to avoid making the same mistakes, Of course I know a bus is much different from a big rig, and I commend you truckers with all the driving you have to do and dealing with cops, other cars, and weather conditions, your paycheck does not tell your worth, after all, you get supplies to places.

Helva XH834 (1 year ago)
I commend you for trying so hard. Not many drivers bother. When my friend - let’s call him Bob for chuckles - had his truck’s starter motor go out and the shop wouldn’t open until 0600 (we’re local drivers) we push started it. I should point out a push start is hard on the engine and can stress and warp your rods so don’t make a habit of it. We were just trying to help a friend and if it hadn’t worked the first or second time, we would not have kept trying because it is so stressful on a cold engine. His first load was due at 0500 and our fleet had no spare trucks and he had loads to pull. My mentor told me about how a push start was done and so I made the suggestion to Bob and two other fleet mates who had come to help. We disconnected Bob’s trailer, used load straps to pull him out from under it, towed him to a nearby slope in the yard - it was a very slight and gentle slope but a downward slant nonetheless - and disconnected the straps. With him at the wheel and the two others helping me, we pushed the truck until it was rolling really good and picked up more speed on the slant. Bob had his key turned and the truck in 2nd gear but the clutch in until we got enough speed. When it coasted up to roughly 10 mph, he let go of the clutch and the momentum forced the drive shaft to turn, compressing the diesel at a high enough ratio to ignite it and the truck finally started. He had to run it all day - thankfully it didn’t have an engine shut down timer set - and our driver leader was aghast at us doing this but my friend got his loads delivered (on time) and the shop was pleased we didn’t have to bring it in until the evening. After that, the lot of us push started another truck or two for practice (and for funsies) and then went to Bob’s house for drinks and burritos.
Fuzzy Butkus (7 days ago)
It’s not the motor but if motor isn’t running front pump on trans isn’t Turing and can burn up a trans in a heart beat especially Volvo’s.Take a look at the service procedure for a tow Ain’t like the old days. Some say a few feet unless the driveshaft or axles aren’t pulled. High mile trans can burn up and your buying a new trans.
Helva XH834 (9 months ago)
Happy Days considering we couldn’t get much speed built up, we were concerned it would stall it as soon as it started if it was in too high of a gear. The shop checked it over and said it was fine but not to make a habit of push starts because it can warp the rods over time. Though it’s not like we were gonna be starting the truck that way every day as a bypass for having the starter motor serviced. All that mattered was it worked.

It good to see someone willing to help. There’s way too many children posting videos laughing at someone else’s misfortune. I’ve been driving for only three years and so far I’ve been accident free but one thing I’ve learned is that it’s a dog eat dog world out here on the road. You’ve got about as many friendly faces as a Junebug swimming over a bream bed does.

All you had to do when dropping the trailer was give the landing gear a couple more turns then on your dash dump you airbags on your drives and it would have take. The trailer weight off. Is this normal when it comes to one swift driver helping another lol. Glad you helped but that’s kinda the blind leading the blind isn’t it. Atleast your heart is in the right place.

Those straps' load limit is around 3,000 pound x 3 = 9,000 pounds. The weight of what you are trying to pull is more than 3 times of that if not more if he was loaded.
