    Problem with M-1101 surge brakes

    Took our new M-1101 HMMWV trailer on a 4 hour trip. It went down just fine, but after we had loaded some seed and traveled home, I could tell when we got to a intersection that the surge brakes did engage. Problem is, I can't say they fully released as when I got home the brakes and the hubs...

    Hauling grain with the 915A1 tractors

    I am jealous, I just bought a couple of the smaller M-931's with the 250 Cummins. I have for the past 10 years been buying 800 and 900 series and putting them to work on the farm here in Eastern Idaho.

    Has GL ever answered any simple questions ??

    Super singles to duals on a 900 series ?

    I remember the friends mechanic tell me that if they don't run that high of PSI it will blow and ruin the tire with that amount of GVW on the truck.

    Super singles to duals on a 900 series ?

    This is Tom, just logging in under my son's account. We build these trucks into potato and grain trucks and we can hit 56,000 GVW. We now have 6 - 800 series and 2 - 900 series. A neighbor that farms in the sand really likes the super singles but has to run the psi at 90. We farm in soft mud...

    How many ways does government liquidation suck let me count the ways!

    I agree KOOLEX, that we need to carefully tell each other about our good and bad experiences so that all can benefit. PORKYSPLACE is calling us all a bunch of illeducated whiners, I am glad that he has it all figured out. I have bought approx 6 five ton trucks from GL, so this is not my...

    Good and bad at Barstow

    I hired a trucker who is very famililar with getting large trucks out of Barstow. This time, he said it is getting worse for the ability of the GL employees to lend any assistence in loading. He said that Tim still deserves kudos as a very helpful person, but that his hands are being...
