Evel Knievel haul rig rolls again
Take a tour with Brad's Classic Trucks owner Brad Wike of the 1975 Mack
FS700 and 1966 custom trailer that was legend Evel Knievel's haul rig --
here shown in the very early stages of restoration after a long period of
disuse in a Florida yard, the rig was brought back from the dead with the
help of Wike, American Trucker host Robb Mariani and others. Overdrive
Senior Editor Todd Dills visited with Wike in February 2012.
Transfer-Dump Race: The Complete Run
Mark Tarascou and his Pete 359 is seen participating in a transfer-dump
competiton at the 2011 Truckin' For Kids Truck Show. Although there were a
few glitches, it was still a good show.
For those not familiar with dump trucks like these, they are set up with a
system that allows the driver to back the truck up while they are standing
behind it to make attaching the towbar easier. The driver puts the truck
in reverse gear and shuts the engine off. At the rear is a switch or a
button that is used to engage the starter motor on the engine without
starting the truck. Since the transmission is in reverse, as the starter
motor turns the engine it also turns the driveline and backs the truck up.
I'm not a trucker so I don't know what this system or technique is called,
but that is how it works. Thanks for watching. Please rate and share this
video with your friends. Shot on 9-25-11.
