Pulled 45,000 lbs today...

The brakes locked up on one of the vacuum trucks while we were moving shops. The 2wd 7.3 powerstroke van couldn't move it but an inch but I was able to 1/4 throttle it around.

I saw a F450 today with a 6 car trailer and it had a 50 sticker.
Maybe I could do the same with my F550
That would be awesome but need CDL

Depends on where you're at. In CA now they go by GCW and you can pretty much set your weight at whatever you want. I have my 550's at 26k.

Pretty bad-*** towing that with your 6-0. I'd be afraid of popping a HG

We tugged a loaded semi truck with a 6.0 twice. It died on the side of the road, alongside the corn field we were working in. All the fuel drained from the right tank into the left...the pickup tube is on the right. Luckily, it didn't sit long enough for the brakes to set up lol

That truck had to weigh over 80,000...I load them heavy that close to home...and we can't scale..oops
