    I've seen that too. along with macks with the integral sleepers and petes with stand up 60" sleepers. I don't think the log boys worry much about weight do they? it sure looks funny though.

    Around here, I don't think they worry too much about anything... Weight, safety, speed, driving skills, CDL... they scare the hell outta me!

    If I see one coming the other way, I almost want to hit the ditch and drive along the tree line. Yep, they're that bad.

    I too am in a prominent logging area and have seen numerous road-tractors(sleepers) hauling and have wondered how they are doing with all the added weight.

    MM would have to answer this for an absolute but I am sure he is refering to wood chips. Hauling bulk Potato chips would be intersting though. Never have to stop at the 7-11.
