MyBigTruck Reports

It’s like downloading your safety manager’s brain! 

This is the most comprehensive Big Truck Guide tool and members can create and unlimited amount of reports. The MyBigTruck report will show you exactly the gross and axle weight maximums are for your truck.  Jurisdictions where the combination does not fulfill the Kingpin to Rear Axle restriction, or the trailer length restriction, are crossed out in red so you can easily see where you can’t go! 

Gross Weight by Truck Type

This is a great tool to find out where you can operate specific combinations. Often the same truck can have different weight limits depending on the road that is being traveled. For this purpose, sub jurisdictions are listed that can operate at different weights, permitted or not.

State Information

A summary of the rules in each particular state or province, along with a listing of the truck types that can operate within each state or province. This is useful when you are looking for which types of trucks are available to be used for your application in each state.

Detailed Truck Information

This tool gives all the basic information about each specific truck type, within each jurisdiction. Summary information includes the gross weight allowable in the jurisdiction, axle spreads, and dimensions.

Dimension Comparer

The Dimension Comparer is a way to drill down into a specific dimension and compare limits across jurisdictions. Height limits are different in each state and you can easily view these limits across all jurisdictions using this tool. Other common dimension to compare are the length of a straight truck, and trailer length.

Bridge Calculators

There are custom bridge calculators created for users to quickly check US Federal Bridge compliance for 5 different common semi truck combinations. Just enter axle spacings and find out whether your truck is legal.
