nah some of us work days and are mechanics
Waiting to fly back to work, I hate this life bros. I love the job and I love the dirt, but I miss my family and I know that at least half the coming nights will be spent paralysed by existential dread.

At least that’s bogged. I got called once to get this out. I just fucking drove it out.
Have you considered moving to a mining town? Makes a huge difference being with the family every day

Lmao nice bog. Is that a water truck? Don't even think about scrapers. Don't look at them. You will never escape if they manage to get you in one.
EHHHHHHH mining towns are grim
I feel like we need some significan R&D for tractors.

why dont they just say that differentials on tractor trailer trucks are built more like trains than like any car
would have saved so much of these situations from happening
trucks are terrible without the diff locked, thats why trucking seems to be a lot like baby sitting a death machine
In what way are you suggesting that differential design affected the rollover in your picture?
the design is bad(for traction) because the double tire-wheels dont spin independently, meaning 16 wheels are following the turning radius of two steering ones
and it's mostly the differential philosophy thats never talked about.
the differential has to be over-built and move slowly to accommodate the unavoidable tread slipping that happens when two parallel tires try to follow one line
You want all 4 on the duallies to spin independently of each other? Not really possible and a dually is generally for weight and ground pressure reasons rather than traction. Or are you talking about having two live axles at the back of the tractor unit? Generally those are manually lockable together (cross locks) independent of the manually locking differentials themselves (diff locks). Or are you just not happy with the Ackermann angle as a concept? Sorry if I missed your point.
its a bit of a rhetorical post, trucks are big, bigger is dangerous
but about diff locking, ive been playing a lot of those eu/na trucking simulator/ snowrunner games
and especially in snowrunner, when i get speed on a highway, im prone to sliding out on every truck. only when it has an always-engaged diff-lock does the trucks' top gear feel manageable
Did I read that right? You’re locking the diffs in a truck in top gear at highway speeds?

his experience is also from a video game, and doesn't know his differentials are fixing to explode. example irl
