I've heard about these but never have seen one live, but here are a few pictures of PE12 and PE14. Heard they are only legal in North Dakota for now and they can be used front or rear and mixed with 28 footers.

Enjoy,

I just have one question. Is that some kind of experimental tractor. Theirs no rust on the wheels and the cab isn't filthy. I sure wish we could get some tractors that looked that good at our center. :thumbsup:
 
If you look real close PE14 used to be a 16000 numbered "p" trailer they extended the frame and body....I got to see it when I was working in the yard in FRE on the hub they sent them thru CGT on there journey to FAR.
 
:shift: He must get to wash his truck everyday or maybe its only for show that its that clean. His airlines aren't hooked to the trailer and he has one of those super single tire tractors. Had a blow out with a super single dolly and the axle was barely 4inches off the asphalt when I got stopped. It tore one of the airlines off the dolly and according to another driver he over heard in the shop those tires cost over $1,100 a piece! Maybe thats why we don't have very many of those dollies around anymore.
 
There was an outfit in cmh that streched them out. They are 35 footers btw.

Seen any of the new G pups? They are 28 feet but only 12 6 tall

It is an experimental tractor since it has Super Single drive tires, there are around 40 if I remember correctly.

I pulled PE12 out to get a pic, hence the air lines and legs down.

Thanks for noticing my clean truck, that's how I roll, with a lil pride in what I do.

Great more work, less pay. Gotta love it. Only in America. Get used to more citations drivers!

Not really following that last post, but I just posted the pics for anyone who has never seen one.

When I was in Dallas sometime ago they had these...I was told 32 was as long as you could be (maybe just in TX?) and still have a single axle.
 
I was told they were 32s, they looked about that much longer than a 28' pup. Who knows, I didn't measure them, I just took the pictures. :)

So are they used for p&d or the road? If it's p&d they should have just kept the single axle 40ft vans.
[/quote] b They are used strictly in North dakato, FAR-BIS-MOT-GFK. They have them balanced out for I believe- could be wrong, but i think they got it to 27000, IF!!! loaded properloy, that is. They slid them axles for close to a week to get it right.

They're actually 33' if you pull up the specs on the shop computer.

And why would this company pay to stretch a trailer? Doesn't seem cost effective since trailers aren't all that expensive. Oops, what am I thinking? Forgot who I was talking about. :biglaugh:
