    Hauling and exhaust direction

    I recently purchased a 2009 5045E. I noticed that the exhaust tip (out put) turns somewhat towards the front of the tractor. I was informed that I should not haul the tractor in the forward direction ( on a trailer) because the wind at hwy speeds can blow into the exhaust and cause the turbo to spin. With the engine not run the turbo will be spinning without lubrication. This can lead to turbo bearing wear. If this information is true I would like to hear some solutions that forum members have found to prevent this. The first that comes to my mind is to haul the tractor with the rear of the tractor loaded forwards on the trailer. The second is some type of exhaust plug.

    I've heard the same myth, I think it's highly unlikely. Stuff a sock in it, no reason to overthink it.

    I drive truck for a living. I can tell you that information is true. The wind will blow through the exhaust and turn the turbo. And like you said, "engine not run the turbo will be spinning without lubrication." Tow truck drivers have a bucket with something to tie it down. That they put over the stacks on a truck.
    You could use a sock in it like Interceptor said or if you had a soup can. You could drill hole in side of the can and use a bungee cord hooked to the can, then hook it to the tractor to hold it down. Or you could just back it on.

    I personally don't think its a myth, but a rather a real possibility especially on equipment with stacks. I work frequently near the port of Baltimore where lots of large equipment is shipped in from overseas and then trucked to other states, the stacks on this equipment are always covered/tapped. Covering or plugging the pipe is quick and easy, so it doesn't make sense not to.

    Myth or Not? I don't know, but would not take a chance. I would cover the exhaust opening. When my 6415 was delivered the exhaust was covered and I was glad it was.

    I think there are a few questions you need to ask yourself before looking for a solution. How often will it be on a trailer being towed? How fast will you be driving while towing? How far will it be towed? If it is for a once or twice a year 5 mile trip to the dealer for service than I would grab a Ziplock style freezer bag and just gaffing tape it to the stack for the trip. If it was more often and for longer trips at highway speeds than I would look for something more robust.

    Something like this:Click image for larger version.

    Thanks. That is good to know. Sound like loading in reverse is the best plan and covering the exhaust.

    We transport on a trailer between a couple fields, maybe 12-15 times a season.

    The ugly Red shop rag with the boogers and grease on it, that dwells under the truck seat, gets shoved in the exhaust.

    Have even used a ball of Lug tape a time or two. Anything will work.
