    wow. thats pretty cool. I wonder how they keep the trailer from sliding around during a big snow fall and all the snow pushing against the blade. Wouldn't all that force cause the trailer to slide into the other lane? if all that makes sence

    In typical DOT fashion, he's only plowing a half inch of snow, if that. They must all take a class, it's the same up here.:angry:

    I've seen those in a few states now being used, or prototypes being tested.
    Iowa has a tractor/trailer combo that the tractor has a plow and wing and the trailer holds tons and tons of salt along with thousands of gallons of brine.

    I would imagine the trailer wheels somehow self adjust to offset how hard the plow is pushing on the trailer. But then again, maybe they just turn to a set point and as long as the truck doesn't stray too much the trailer will track back behind it even if it gets pushed around a little.

    I just saw an article where they are going to be trying one of those out on the interstate around Ft. Wayne, Indiana also...

    Never seen one plowing, but I've passed a few Muni's with one in tow. Pretty nice piece of equipment

    I have seen them in action many times. The first time you see one in action it will deffinatley make to do a double take.
