Loading Doepker Legacy trailers.

Just wondering who is running a set of super b Doepker Legacy aluminum trailers and how do you load them according to the air scales. Pulling with International 9900 I trucks. Loaded in Alberta at 63,500 kg.

You could load it the first time with a grain cart with scales, put in whatever you need in each compartment 1 at a time, and read pressures

Fill first hopper till truck is at 60 psi fill second hopper till bridge says 40 psi at this time truck will be at 70 psi. Fill third hopper till the bridge says 60 psi. Fill last /4th hopper to 70-72psi on the back axels at this time the bridge will say 70 psi too. and she's a perfect 63500 load. Sometimes.

Usually I try to get about 70 psi on all three gauges.
I don't understand how some trucker have such a hard time loading thier trailers it's like a major undertaking every time. Fill this hopper the the back one then top up the front on then put a little more on the bridge it's really annoying. Sorry about the rant hope that gets you started.

Our truck is a freightliner Columbia 46000 rears and a 2010 legacy aluminum super b with lift axels. Empty weight is around 18,800 with no mud or snow on it. FYI

My above comment was directed at the guys that drive every day for years and still have loading issues not the new guys. It took about a year of experience for me to get real comfortable loading.

One to watch for when people are telling you how to load is, not all truck air gauges will read the same.

We have 3 freigtliners and 1 pete. The freightliners are all the same the pete shows about 10 psi higher to get the same load.
