The tri-drive vehicle was developed to fill a specific need by operators (primarily construction operators), to allow them to take advantage of increased maximum gross vehicle weights permissible in several states. In order to take advantage of these increased legal weights and furnish adequate vehicle capacity and mobility, new components and new application standards were developed. This paper describes the problems encountered and what was done to solve them.
