The Michigan Special T800
The term Michigan Special is used to describe a truck spec unique to Michigan. So, why are these trucks so unique? Above all, it’s axle laws in Michigan that allow for up to 164,000 LBS. In other words, it means trucks can gross double the national average. The added weight must be spread over eleven axles and not exceed a length guidance. As a result, Michigan has some mighty tough and strong trucks that have a rather short wheelbase. Additionally, A Michigan Special has big brakes to go with its big motor to handle the added weight.
A typical Michigan Special Spec includes:
- 18-20K Front
- 46K Rears
- Double frame
- Tare weight 48-50K
