Moving Tandems When Overweight

One of our drivers Bobby Brown gave us some tips that we thought were interesting:

“When scaling while overweight always remember to move your tandems toward your problem. If you are heavy on the front, move them forward. If you are heavy on the back, move them back.

Another tip is that every hole for pins is approximately 250 pounds. If you need to move 1000 pounds, you will move 4 pin holes. Another tip is to use chalk to mark the pavement so you can see how far to move. Bobby marks his step and then aligns it to the pavement to help him from moving too far and having to repeat the process.”

Thanks for the tips, Bobby!
