Some common questions with semi truck towing you may be thinking:

  • How much do semi trucks tow?

While most semi-trucks in the U.S. haul around 40 tons (80,000 pounds), our new Volvo FH16 heavy duty trucks features a new transmission with crawler gears capable of towing up to 300+ tons. Our team in Shenandoah county can handle large scale towing needs unlike other small scale towing companies in our area. Plus we have a fully booked staff on hand 24/7 to help you get your truck back on the road. In the end thats all that matters, getting you home safely to your family and helping you get back to work. That’s the promise at Shenandoah, which we accomplish one day at a time. We are a family company so working with us means more affordable towing services than any other company that is owned by a corporation.

  • What do semi trucks pull?
Semi trucks pull anything over 26,000 pounds. In every state, 80,000 pounds is the limit for all vehicles. Why is there a limit. Unfortunately, public highways, local roadways, and city and state department of transportation mention that roads have a weight capacity and they dont want the local and state roadways falling apart under the heavy weight of semi trucks. This is important because than it could affect other cars on the road. Also a fully loaded tractor-trailer weighing 80,000 pounds traveling under ideal conditions at a speed of 65 miles per hour will take 525 feet to stop (almost the length of two football fields).
