This looks like it can tow!

This looks like it can tow a big trailer.

Yes they can. I know of one that when he has his trailer hooked up he is close to 85' long. He has plenty of power too.

I think 18 wheelers can total out at 80,000 pounds.

In certain states 80k is the max, but in the north mid western states, 110k is normal. Many of the doubles you see being pulled are over 80k.
Truck front axle can be 13200, each drive axle can carry a max of 20k (23k in Canada), each trailer axle can carry up to 20k. That extra dolly allows for the more weight.

That's amazing! It says it has a Detroit Diesel 60, I bet this one can pull up the big hills.

Tandem axles can only carry 20,000 if the spacing is wide enough. Otherwise they are limited to something like 32,000 for the pair.

It is 34,000 pounds for a tandem axle. You can go 20,000 pounds per axle only if the spacing is ten feet or more.
