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.

I'd hate to see the EGTs on this one!
I'd like to clear up any confusion, this truck was built by Bean's Diesel
and was shown off at an event were also competing at.
Loading The Ole Freightliner - The Hard Way
*Watch In HD* I don't know if this truck had locking diff's or if they
were just not able to engage them, but having the rear axles locked-up
probably would've saved a lot of headaches this day. I don't know if this
truck rolled to the show on this trailer or not, but it looks to me, had
everything gone smoothly, that it would've scraped the tanks on the
transition from the ramp to the deck anyway. Luckily the bad decision to
charge the ramp when there are literally just inches of room for error
didn't prove fatal to the driver or that cool old 1971 White/Freightliner
cab-over. One smart decision was made there though, notice how the nice
polished reefer was moved forward out of the danger zone before all the
real drama started. Shot at Truckin' For Kids in Irwindale, California on
