Fox Sports Network (is featuring Jost International on its “Motorhead Garage” television series. The segment was filmed Oct. 18 at the Jost U.S. manufacturing site located in Greeneville, Tenn., and will air on FSN Sunday, Oct. 30, at 11:30 a.m. and Monday, Oct. 31 at 4:30 p.m., all time zones.

During the segment, Greg Laarman, Jost vice president of engineering, explains how tractor and trailer combinations are coupled together safely mating the tractor fifth wheel with the trailer kingpin. Filming shows the coupling and uncoupling of a combination rig belonging to Big G Express, a Tennessee motor carrier outfitted with Jost fifth wheel, kingpin and landing gear demonstrating how this procedure secures the tractor and trailer for transit. The producers of “Motorhead Garage” believe understanding this everyday process for trucking will give the show’s viewers confidence that the semis they are sharing the road with are safely and securely locked together.

Jens Polte, vice president of operations, provided a tour of Jost’s Greeneville manufacturing facility, including explanations of fifth wheel wear characteristics and rebuild processes. Motorhead Garage co-host Sam Memmola carries out a minor rebuild procedure.

An overall view of trends within the fifth wheel product segment was given by Rich Carroll, vice president of sales and marketing. Low lube top plates and cab-actuated air release options now offered on Jost fifth wheels are designed to offer fleet operators a lower lifecycle cost and driver-friendly options.
