Commercial Drivers License Pre Trip Inspection Training Manual

Author: Robert C. Robinson

Release Date: 2009-07-01
Genre: Education

Most training manuals skip and bounce around the truck in a manner that's both confusing and disorganized. This manual, however, systematically guides the trainee in a logical, orderly method that works and makes sense. From the start of the inspection to it's end, the driver will never have to guess about where to go or what to inspect next. This is accomplished by displaying the truck and trailer components in sections that are logically and numerically organized followed by a thorough discussion of the components following the same logical, numerical order--making the pre-trip inspection far less intimidating and less confusing. While most manuals barely mention the components to be inspected, this manual discusses the components in great detail by first explaining their purpose and then by further explaining the multitude of problems that one could possibly find while inspecting a tractor and/or trailer or straight truck. Instead of black and white sketches that lack clarity and detail, this manual includes color photographs of every component covered. Never again will you have to wonder what a component really looks like nor will you have to embarrass yourself by asking someone. Also included are a sample score sheet and an inspection checklist that can be used for practice while training. This manual also contains several bonus pictures, compliments of the world champion extreme turbine race team Miss GEICO and AMF Offshore Racing. More importantly, this manual includes all the information needed to successfully pass the pre-trip inspection exam on the first try and also serves as a good refresher to those who already have a commercial driver's license using an approach that has worked time and time again.

The Long Haul A Trucker s Tales of Life on the Road

Author: Finn Murphy
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company
ISBN: 9780393608724
Release Date: 2017-06-06
Genre: Transportation

A long-haul mover’s rollicking account of life out on the Big Slab. More than thirty years ago, Finn Murphy dropped out of college to become a long-haul trucker. Since then he’s covered more than a million miles packing, loading, and hauling people’s belongings all over America. Known by his trucker handle as U-Turn, he spends his days (and many of his nights) in a 53-foot eighteen-wheeler he calls Cassidy. In The Long Haul, Murphy offers a trucker’s-eye view of America on the move. Going far beyond the myth of the American road trip, he whisks readers down the I-95 Powerlane, across the Florida Everglades, in and out of the truck stops of the Midwest, and through the steep grades of the Rocky Mountains. As he crisscrosses the country, Murphy recounts with wit, candor, and charm the America he has seen change over the decades, from the hollowing-out of small towns to changing tastes in culture and home furnishings. Some 40 million Americans move each year, and very few have any idea what they’re getting into or the kind of person to whom they are relinquishing their worldly goods. The Long Haul is also a behind-the-scenes look at the moving industry, revealing what really happens when we call in “the movers.” Through it all, Murphy tells poignant, funny, and often haunting stories of the people he encounters on the job: a feisty hoarder in New Hampshire; a Virginia homeowner raging when Murphy’s truck accidentally runs down a stand of trees; an ex-banker in Colorado who treats Finn and his crew with undisguised contempt; a widow who needs Murphy to bring her archeologist husband’s remains and relics to a Navajo burial ceremony in New Mexico. These experiences inspire Finn’s memorable reflections on work, class, and the bonds we form with the things we own and the places we live. Brimming with personality and filled with great characters, The Long Haul is a resonant portrait of the enduring appeal of manual labor in the dark underbelly of the American Dream.
