Mobile Barriers MBT-1® is commonly used with a cabover or daycab tractor with 60 inches [1.5 m] of swing clearance and pulls fully set up at speed from site to site. The MBT-1® is usually configured at 62 feet [18.9 m] to 82 feet [25 m].

The standard legal length semi-trailer in the USA measures 53 feet [16.2 m]. Configured at 62 feet [18.9 m] (using 1 wall section), the MBT-1® drives similar to a semi-trailer.
