We cut a big old oak tree to slab for table tops, but I'm cutting mainly spruce for milling - building our own cottage and garage next year.

I am curious, do you have trouble with blade deflection while cutting spruce?

Finally have a little snow. Just started a new spot and it is a little softer than I had hoped. Won't be getting any better soon. Rain tomorrow and in the 50's Christmas Eve ????

Not so far, we did on some pine with big knots once though.

Yeah the good ole UP. There was talk of moving us to a job that was 23 miles off the blacktop... Luckily that idea has passed. ha

A friend of mine runs truck and sent me a picture of a scale slip a few weeks back at 197,xxx lbs. He also sent me the picture at 4am after he just got unloaded. A lot of guys that run heavy like to run short with logs during the day, then really load on the pulp and run at night. Eventually they all get caught though.

If an 5 axle/18-wheel truck and trailer combo hauling logs got caught at 197,000 in Virginia without a trip permit to be over 80,000lbs the fine would be ..... $0.45 a pound (triple rate for being 50% over gross permitted) just for the overweight - so $52,650.00.  Then for each axle that was carrying over 20,000 there would be an additional $0.30-$0.90 per pound (sliding scale depending on how far over permitted weight each axle or axle group is) of excess axle weight.  So, add another insane amount.  By the way, those are the reduced fine amounts for forestry products.  It's 5 to 15 cents more a pound for other cargo types.   They run the scales somewhere in my county nearly every week.  The scale man has a creeper and a flashlight too.

They are talking about 11 axle trucks, who are running 35k over or more ;D

I figured something had to be way different because the only way you would get 197k on the road around here is with a jeep/jeep/stinger lowboy..  What is the max permitted weight on 11 axles then, 150-160?

Anything over 80k has to be permitted here because the state doesn't recognize more than 5 axles without a permit.  Anything that gets much over 110k has to have a trip route reviewed and permitted individually each time the truck makes the trip.  I've had trips flat rejected and told that the state would not issue a permit to travel that route at my requested weight.

I found some pics of Michigan log trucks and I see what you mean now.

DOT has nothing on MSHA. I know a mine in VT that got a $35,000 fine for having a 1 1/4" knockout in a service panel not plugged off. :o

164,000 max Michigan weigt. That's with a minimum one tandem and three 9 foot spreads then 6 additional axles. That's the only combination to gross max. Most log trucks you see around here are 159,000 that's two 9 foot spreads and one tandem. Tandems are 32,000 9 foot spreads are 18,000 and any other axle is 13,000.

You can put your pic up in your post by the following easy steps...

Go to your post, click "modify"

Click the line below the post window "Click here to add photo..." and a window will open where you can do a couple things... no need to upload the pic again.
Click the "My Gallery" tab in the menu line.  You will be taken to your gallery.

Click the pic you want (have three of what looks to be the same) and it will enlarge.

Just below the enlarged pic is a line called a URL,  click on that and it will highlight.

Do a copy (Alt-C) and then go back to your open post... do a Paste (Alt-V) and your pic will appear in your post when you click the Preview button. Then when the way you want it, click the Post button.

Hope this helps... nice loading rig..

We went 6yrs without a ticket, finally they where forced into giving us one on paperwork from the secretary. Getting ready to open a 3rd pit and I'm just going shaking my head sometimes. See if your smart you just keep throwing your track screen on the lowboy and park it out front at the end of the day.  :D :D :D

You figured it out, but then you deleted the one pic that you posted from your gallery. So you end up with a blank in your post. The pic used in your post has to be the one that remains in your gallery.
You can fix it by modifying that post and put in the one in your gallery. But getting there.. nice truck.

I saved this pine from being turned into firewood, 38 inches at the butt and 50 feet long, some greying and pink spots as the top blew off it two years ago and its been standing dead for two years....I think I'll make wide plank flooring for the cottage with it.  What's the widest plank flooring youve seen?
