Yeh a massive scania R720 Smile no the LC, they are just so much bigger and beefy compared to the 90, it feels like a puddle jumper!

Well, you're not really puling all the dead weight since the truck is also lending effort - but you are providing the traction and the initial start.  seen cruisers pull heavier where truck is not running. i reckon its not as risky as it may first look. Still need to be cautious though.

That aside it does not stop it being very impressive, and also a really nice thing to do as well.

I know what you're saying just can't imagine taking the risk, I've got a class 1 licence so know how heavy they are to move, end up with a prop looking like a cork screw

Very good point.

was slippy though so some offset? Gotta be careful nonetheless.

It did it on tickover in 1st gear low range (its an auto) I tickled the revs up on the hand throttle to about 1000rpm it'd wheelspin above that. Being a jap one its only got the CDL no F-R difflocks on my one.
