What did that load weigh, and how far did you have to haul it?

We used to haul one 2388 and two 30' heads on one trailer. We were heavy on the back until we put triples on the trailer. Jim

Trucker didn"t complain about the weight but could only get down to 12 wide. Had to be heavy though. 700 miles Illonois to NY.

That load probably did not weigh in at much more then 32-34000 . And depending on what brand RGN that is more then likely a 40 ton capacity . I pulled a Fontaine and it was a 40 ton with two axles and if i pined on the third it was a fifty ton. I know how much work it is to load a load like that. Getting tires off a combine and getting it down on the deck is not a fun job. Unless ya got two good loader with boom poles on them . Building a load of iron is a art , first ya need to build a solid base then start stacking , Disc's make a good base to build on , semi mount plows work but ya really need two of the same kind . Hauling spring tooth harrows are a real pain as they are like loading loose hay and ya can never get them to really set in . Then the fun comes when ya go to unload them as they are now Stuck and tangled into the stuff below . Buying gravity wagons are a lot of fun also to load, first ya have to get them off the gears and start figuring which one will go inside the other one and ya try and stack atleast three then taking off the tires and breaking down the running gears and getting them stuffed into where ever ya can find. I remember the first load of iron i hauled was out of a sale in Fletcher Ohio. Pulled in there with and old Astro and a 48 ft. step deck . This older guy comes up to me and asked what i was after and i handed him the tickets and flat told him this is what i am after and i have NO IDEA on how to load all this JUNK on one load. Old Bill took the tickets and went thru them and said i'll teach ya how to load Iron . Five hours later i had every piece i went after on that trailer , man it sure did look UGLY but it was on there and never moved .

when we load out lowboy with scrap at the plane we use a 50 ton excavater and lift it on, the place we take it has a crane which can pick the stuff off, guess i get lucky lol ive done quite a bit of 12 foot wide and one machine we have is 13, and no way to reduce it, not the most fun, but it pays well lol

Biggest piece i ever had on the deck was on the Rogers lowboy and it was a continuous miner and it weighed in a 196000 , and no there were no permits and yes i was a weeeeeee bit over . They could not get a trailer that could have hauled it legal in to where it had to be loaded . And i hauled it about 65 miles from over in Pa over here and down in to the old coal country . Had the pony power to pull it but that last hill that back in my coal hauling days i pulled many a big loads of coal up over BUT never took a load down it . My choice or third gear with the jake on was not the best as i could not hold her back and had to turn her loose with all six axles smoking half way down i cut her loose and came into that small town at at about 80 mph. and once on the flats i got it slowed down and was able to make the turn and head out the county road and cross the fifteen ton bridge with a 196000 on the deck and 48000 of truck and trailer under it . That is NOT the first big load to cross that bridge .I first crossed it back in 1970 with over a 110000 on right behind five others with a lot more then i had as i was still learning bad habits.

550 - 3406 kitty with a pittsburg power box and a flip of the switch instant 740 , 13 speed 3.90 rears . . It did fine on the power end it was the down hill wooooooo power that was lacking . I was not happy that the jake on a cat will not hold back as well as on a Cummings , BUT that hill is long and steep . Back in the days of the big horse being a 318 with N70 brown tags and the 335 Cummings a 40-45 ton load of coal going up that hill was third gear with 4.44-4.56 gears and ya had time to have your lunch drink a cup of coffee and smoke a smoke before ya had to shift. At the bottom ya have about 3/4 mile before ya have to turn to head east out the county road. IF ya miss it then ya have and extra mile to get woooed in and turned around.

ive noticed that too, the jakes on the cats don't have the braking power they do on a Cummings,i thought it was just my truck, my old kw i personally owned , [ 400 big cam] would nearly slide the tires if you jaked the engine without a loaded trailer, the 3406b in this peterbilt,can make the noise but unless your way down in the tranny it doesn't do a whole lot
