Teamsters drive all sizes of trucks, but often FAR over 10,000 pounds. California nominally limits to 80,000 pounds (recently raised to 88k with permit to off-load ports faster). Idaho, Oregon and Washington permit gross vehicle weights up to 105,500 pounds, Arizona, Nevada and Utah 129,000 pounds. Profits push truckers to load as close to that as possible.
