Australian Road Trains…seriously, it’s a train.

We’ve talked about Australian trucking before on the Daily D but this takes it to a whole new level.

According to the poster…

On February 18, 2006, an Australian built Mack truck with 113 semi-trailers, 2,865,980 pounds (1,299,987 kg) and 4,836 ft 11 in (1,474.3 metres) long, pulled the load the longest road train (multiple loaded trailers) ever pulled with a single prime mover. It was on the main road of Clifton, Queensland, that 70-year-old John Atkinson claimed a new record, pulled by a tri-drive Mack Titan
In the extreme outback of Australia, consisting of Western Queensland through to Central Western Australia, there is technically no limit to how long a road train can be. if the authorities granted permit for a truck to be a 1000 trailers long, its legal.

Not impressed? Okay then, what do you think about a semi than can parallel park itself?

Yes, it’s a joke video but you really do have to perform a parallel park to get your CDL!
