Discussion in 'Old Dominion Freight Line' started by JIM BOB, Nov 16, 2017.
when i worked line haul nights, there was no time to do that, as all the other line haul drivers were coming in. no patience to wait, just as if one was backing into a spot at a truck stop.
Against policy. What's his name?
Billy wouldve had that trailer on the door and emptied it out with the forklift tires still smoking in that amount of time
Backing a gear at FedEx is against policy.
But us old Vikings just scoff at that.....
Hahahaha. Interesting, I might know who it is. Notice how the tractor number is obscured. Hmmm.
I always break my trailers. I ain't gonna be caught backing no set when the safety man appears out of nowhere. Best to just do it the right way the first time. Work going to tell me how it's done and I'm going to do it.
You don't have a clue, don't waste me time. It's too sunny at this domicile for it to be anywhere you run.
Funny how he shuts truck off but backs up a set lol
Was that rear box placarded????
Ultimate no no!! Sic him , Billy!!!
I could do that any time I wanted, just never had the urge. even triples!
what's the policy on this?
I think that's pretty darn impressive.
Wow what a rookie. I could do post trip, unhook everything and put everything in a door in less than 2 min.... Why did he waste so much time?????
Didn’t say it was where I go. But I meet a fine selection of driver’s from down south. It looks like someone, didn’t say for sure. So don’t waste my time with useless dribble. Y’all must be kicking out the freight. Lot’s of trailers coming up lately.
Backing the dolly with lead,always seemed like the best way to me...
Never backed a set before. I've never had the misfortune of driving a two axle daycab, and it's all but impossible to do with anything else.
I did back a gear once though, when I was at FedEx. I was dropping my back box and swapping for an empty right next to it on a Saturday morning in a yard full of snow. It was a heck of a lot faster backing the gear than dropping it, dropping my lead, repositioning the gear and rehooking everything, plus I stayed warm in the cab and out of the wet snow.
It’s technjcally against policy at OD... safety man in Dallas told me when he saw me hooking a set backing a jiff. He said he was impressed but not to do it. Doesn’t mean I still don’t.
This video was posted several years ago.Wonder if this driver still has a job.lol
This guy is out of Sacramento and the video was posted in August earlier this year, he also posted one with him backing a lead trailer and a dolly to the back box
