Understanding Fifth Wheels by Teedautoparts: 10:10pm On Aug 30
Hello guys...

So tonight, I'd like us to know about Fifth Wheels.

Have you ever wondered how a Truck head pulls a semi trailer (Maybe a tank, or a flat bed)?



Well, this is possible with what we call a FIFTH WHEEL. In Nigeria, we call it TURN TABLE.



This Fifth Wheel is usually attached to the Tractor, and then it hooks something beneath the semi trailer. That's something is called a KING PIN






So this King Pin goes into the Fifth Wheel, and then you have a complete truck like this

The trucks I have seen in Nigeria, especially Lagos. The truck drivers are fond of normally removing the tyres in other to use it as extra tyres
