I don't know--do I want to do this? Is this guy legit or just yanking my chain? Oh well here goes. A hot-shot rig is a one to two ton tractor hooked like a semi with a 5th wheel pulling a flatbed trailer. They haul light machinery/insulation/irrigation pipe.plastic pipe, etc. Not many of these outfits around anymore--only ones I know of is Mercer, Farm Service and Supply, and Jones Motor. Maybe Anderson.
