    My brother in law used to pull CCX semis around in the snow at the CCX terminal with his '86 Ford diesel all the time. He worked there and if they didn't get the lot plowed out in time the night drivers would get stuck trying to get back in the yard. The Fed Ex video is cool but not really a great feat since the semi is also helping.

    I pulled a NEMF tractor trailer up a hill and around a corner into a parking lot yesterday, 48 foot trailer empty and a six wheel day cab tractor. He was just sitting there spinning. I hooked a chain and couldn't get any traction, had to beat the bag off of my truck for at least 5 minutes before I got him up over the crest of the hill. Wasn't so much the weight, but uphill on slick wet packed snow. I burned some rubber off my tires, but I wasn't going to give up because the cop didn't think I could do it. I had the 810 on but only about 600 lbs in back. Last week I had 6000 lbs in back, might have had an easier time of it. I wanted to take some pics but I didn't want to stop and waste time while the cop was directing traffic around us.

    My thoughts exactly... the pickup did a small portion of the work to get the truck moving... now if the semi were not providing any power to move then that would be impressive...

    I haven't pulled a semi out or anything that impressive but this past week we had 2 little storms come in with 3-4 inches of snow and 30mph wind. I stopped and pulled out 4 Fords - 2 which were plowing, one off a gravel road and the other out of a ditch. 2 dogde's were stuck up to there grill being stupid thinking they could get through a wind packed drift which just shut them down.

    Makes me feel kinda dorky for thinking it was cool to pull my neighbor's Rendezvous out of his driveway this morning.

    I've pull started numerous tractor trailers with our 96 F-350 4x4 wrecker. Amazing what these trucks can actually do when they need to.
