We did a long frame swap with grapples off a 548 made the machine a 100 times better to run especially with fluid in the tires.

Thatís the biggest thing is the wide. We supposed to be able to move over size farm equipment with out permit but DOT will give you a ticket then you spend all day in court to get it kicked out. I wish they would make one of those guys pay me for my time when Iím with in the law but they still wright a ticket.

Yeah, those new old trucks always show ya their butts when you first put them in service.  There always a few splinters that fester and come to the surface at once.

I got a call at noon yesterday at noon said I could bring 2 loads in the mill. Busted my butt got it loaded and blow the tire going to the mill. Got unloaded and back home picked up my international and loaded it crossed the scales at 58,000 had 20 tons on it. My GMC can only hold 14 tons. That loader is heavy.

Itís not but 20 bucks but my thing is I might move 2 times a day. The permit has to be applied for 24 houses aheaded of time. Like yesterday I got a call at noon that I could bring 2 loads in. I moved my tractor and got those 2 loads. Thatís why I donít want to mess with that .

We get a yearly permit because we move a decent amount about once a month or so depending on job size.

that load reminds me of the big truck crash on 201.this was 25 yrs ago or so. a trailer with wood sticking out the back too far was turning left to go into scott paper. another truck went by him on the right. it is 2 lanes there. the wood went through the windshield. maybe its common in the south to haul like that up here the dot would catch up to you real fast

  I was stationed in Charleston, SC in the sixties. West Virginia Pulp & Paper had a mill in No. Charleston. Used to see a lot of single axle trucks loaded like that headed in there; once in a while somebody would be on the front so they could make a corner.
  Wasn't a great idea then, and certainly not today, but you do what you gotta do.............

We have tree length "pole trailers" up here, and they are dangerous. You have to put a reflective marker on the longest stick, and a light whenever lights are called for (dark and weather).

When we did some 150í poles between Oregon and Washington is the Lewis & Clark bridge at the bottom on the Washington side is a light. We had pilot cars blocking all lanes of a 4 lane intersection a van decided she needed through at the time the tail was coming around and blew out all the windows in the van when the two met.
