    One huge dump truck and it's famous. Today there are some even larger, but when this was built, it was KING TRUCK for sure.

      They pull up to 5 trailers at a time in some of the rural areas of Australia!

      As for here in the USA they pull triple 28' & double 48' trailers on the 90/80 Ohio & Indiana turnpike. Here in MI. They run gravel trains which are double fifth -wheel dump trailers with a pintle hitch in the middle which turns like a triple trailer.

        I was in a TA truck stop about three months ago & watched a driver from R&L blind-side back a set of doubles into a spot across from me, and he only did one pull-up to straighten things up! Needless to say I was impressed, I called to him on the CB & told him that was amazing to watch! He just laughed & said that after 28 years he has gotten use to backing them up.

          I was in the Northern Territory of Australia back in 2000. Nothing like seeing those 3 to 5 van pullers run by you at several KM per hour on dirt. And you better get out of the way, those roo bars dont stop for anything...

            I tried backing a set of doubles once. ONCE. Didn't turn out so good. Didn't hit anything, but sure made that set look like a pretzel. Decided I can drive a nail better than I can drive a truck.

                Now here's a great "Rolling On" country music video and while it's about railroading with steam power, I think forum members (especially us older ones) will enjoy this. For you truckers, just do some editing to the video part and change a few words.
