You’re not kidding! Those first set of rear tires are just barely past centerline at the very edge of the deck

I googled this: "... a tandem sleeper tractor weighing a minimum weight of around 17,000 pounds upward to 22,000 pounds."

thats curb weight, not gross.

I know I shouldnt say this but I am actually Impressed that they were able to even get it on the back of the roll-off. But there is no way that should be legal.

hey, stranger things have happened.

my kids friends had to haul a M989A1 "HEMAT" trailer, GWR of 33000 lbs (but it was probably closer to 25000 lbs with the actual load on it) with an F350 when one of their M935A1's broke down, about 100 miles from Burning Man. The M989A1 is a pintle towed, front axle steering heavy munitions trailer (11000 lb dry, 22000 lb payload), that had all their water and diesel for a week+ on the Playa for 100 people... the best part was someone had to ride in the back of the F350 and operate a compressor that was jury-rigged to the HEMAT's air brakes so it wouldn't jackknife the F350 dually when they slowed.

If they were just transporting it empty, they could've just ran the nut in to release the breaks. The trailer itself isn't that heavy

Powerstroke is good enough until the DOT Sees you, and then you better have brought Vaseline along as well
