The trucking is a real pain.  City truckers dont want to leave the city.  Interstate truckers dont want to enter the city, and everyone hates crossing connecticut.

The width would be a problem for starters.

I remember seeing 200 sized high and wide excavators/road builders coming in on the train to Portland.

10 is the standard width, 10'6" or even 11 is ok on many western lines.  There's a landing nearby at the Northern Port of VA, just 25 miles or so.  Hmm

Actually he could just barge it down the ICW right to DC and I'd drive it to my farm.

Ha, see he can move it by barge.  

Well I missed out, blew the auction...should have won if I'd been paying attention.  Oh well.   Really need it now too as we were offered 4 more properties.

Go on FB in a couple of these logged iron pages, tell them what your looking for and you would be amazed what comes out of the woodwork. I know of a LOW HR Valmet 865 ? like a 2014 another guy by me is selling, not quite sure what you want, they also have a timberpro 830 for sale.
