I'm on 90 going west. The wind is blowing but on a more normal load I would be doing 5.5. It will improve once I turn south. The wind really isn't THAT badClick the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.

Those wheels will catch air and make it feel bigger... Could trap it... Would fix the wind drag issue

Can be....
I have 15*15' felt pads that I lay on cargo to protect the tarps..

Boss Im leased to was talking about what my opinion was of a conastoga or quick draw setup for a GN.. 10k for basic 20-30k for nicer side of the middle of the road one...on top of trailer cost Told him unless you can get a nice premium and have enough work for it....it's not worth it...
Plus it would limit normal flat deck stuff I haul as well... Definetly don't want to be dragging something that's 9'-13'6 tall all the time deck on my GN is 36"..


Definetly nice for some loads... But would cut out alot of other stuff I haul

Yeah this stuff is dedicated but seasonal. Doing a normal tarp job takes too long and the customer wants their stuff now right now and yesterday. The return wheels usually half of them are sharp as a knife they're so worn out.

You understand all permit loads even if just for overweight have a max speed limit of 55mph, get caught exceeding that and the permit can be torn up on the spot. So claiming he drives like an asshole when you have no clue just makes you look like even more of a dumb azz.

Considering that is where the factory gate is set, no. We have guys pushing them to 35+ reliably. Honesty goes a long long way with turbochargers. Many guys don't ever look at their gauge and tell me they only see 30 psi. Later they call after we ask them to actually watch and it is 40+ psi.

Wouldnt putting a speed sensor and mapping it out be the only real way to check if its safe?

I think the fact we sell 20+ remans a month of this model of turbo gives us enough experience to know that 30psi is safe. Boost leaks are what kill them. Overspeed them with boost leaks and the wheel will split in half. They will do that with 20psi of boost on a 435 engine.

What's the difference in a 7923 and 7924 of a 16 liter? Outside they look the same? The 7924 suitable for a smaller engine with some more fuel?

The sliding tarp? They're pretty rare in western Canada for a reason.

What's the reason? There are lots of things uncommon in western canada partly due to the lack of population and mostly due to the pig headed attitude of doing nothing similar to Eastern canada ( ) and anywhere else prosperous...

but we got dat OIL MONEY doe!!
