... I would guess it was moving at least 20 mph on our down hill slope. I wonder how hot that got the hydraulic oil that operates the self propelled trailer.

Maybe the peon whose job it is to adjust all the brakes on that thing called in sick this morning   Cheesy

One of the videos said it travels on something like 630 wheels. I can't for the life of me figure out where they all are. There are 18 axles front and rear. If you only have tires on
the outsides, that's 144.  If there are also 2 inner axles at each location, that's 288.  Maybe they're counting all the trucks and support vehicles, too.

How would you like to be the truck driver? By law, he has to do a pre-check of his rig every morning, including checking every tire for proper inflation and adjust the brakes.  Roll Eyes  I'd
sure like to see his pre-trip inspection report.
