    I didn't see any caution lights or D.O.T. #'s on that truck :nono: and they're way over GVWR :nod: I'm willing to bet they don't have insurance either and probably lowballed to get that contract too...

    Same here haha.. that is crazy though with the people for ballast.. you couldn't find anyone who would be willing to sit in the back of a truck these days, even if you paid them.

    that video was actually shot on one of our commercial lots last year, the lowballers have taken all the money out of this line of work, so we havent been able to update our equipment, thats one of our newer units
