By no means am I saying this is a dead weight trailer pull...BUT...you have to admit it's going to be the end of diesel trucks.

I wonder what the actual pull weight was? That of course was not a 1.25 million pound rated tow strap...

I may or may not be part of the reason those car carrying rail cars now have steel sides. No confession but it's "possible" there may have been a tragic hunting accident or two somewhere back in my younger days

From what i read, basically any truck could of done it. Its more of a math/friction/mass thing that i don't bother to do on my own. Somewhat explains the tow strap rating BTL states... low enough friction and the weight is not as much of an issue. Below is the link to the article that explains it the best, or at least i nod my head in agreement the most at... But i would guess 25 years, as people like me that ignore electric cars basically because i'm set in my ways thin out...

I know it is super easy to move a small 100 ton Cost Guard Cutter tied to the dock. Step on a mooring line and the cutter moves right up tight to the dock. Floating on the water has a lot less friction than steel wheels on rails but you get the idea. I bet you old Jack Lalane could pull those rail cars with one foot in a cast....

The DC motors used in these electric vehicles have torque for days. When the battery technology gets to where it won’t take a truck bed full of them to go 500 miles & only a few hours to recharge......watch out.
