Of course there are brakes...while on some Shirley wagons they are not on every axle, it depends on style as to how many. Same idea as some derrick dollies, there is always brakes on at least one axle.i am surprised they don't have brakes because those fancy modular trailers are self levelling and self steering you would think they would have brakes maybe not set up or something I notice there some pretty old C500s maybe old Canadian trucks sent down there but Mamoet I would though to have better trained drivers and better equipped trailers on a job like that I guess not
I wondered why they used a winch not a push bar on the push truck. I always thought Momoet owned Premay but I guess Mullin does. I also had wondered if the brakes where shut off completely like no air going to them I guess if they sped up they may have got it back under control either way a bad mark on momoets belt right thereOf course there are brakes...while on some Shirley wagons they are not on every axle, it depends on style as to how many.

Often they are plumbed with quick shut off valves on each the service and emergency lines at either end of the section, and this way you can control the brakes with either, the pusher or puller units, or some with each. I suspect when they for whatever reason unhitched the pusher, they screwed up and a valve got left closed. Why the pusher wasn't hooked up solid is beyond me. I gotta laugh at the loser steering it, he bailed least the guy upfront had some balls and road it out...stupidity in motion
You wanna see what Mammoet scrapes off the bottom of the barrel for drivers...run 63 to Mc Murray either way, toss up which is worse, meeting them loaded or empty. Been some issues with them basically ignoring permit restrictions and such...there is a reason they can bid moving that stuff so much cheaper than Premay and others.
