    ‘Super loads’ hit Montana highways

    1/31/09

    Photo by David Grubbs Billings Gazette - R.J. Schultis of Phoenix directs traffic Wednesday near the scales in Broadus. Schultis works for Northwest Industrial Rigging in Phoenix and is helping move a huge steam condenser to Canada. The Montana Department of Transportation was at the scales to measure the truck, making sure it was hauling according to their permit.

    That reminds me of something similar that came through the Madison area several months ago! Had about that many wheels under it.

    Football Field Sized Trucks Head to Canadian Tar Sands with Superloads

    Special trucks the size of a football field are carrying equipment cargo in “superloads” to the Canadian Tar Sands for oil extraction.





    The Billings Gazette reports on the massive size of the trucks:
    How big? One load that is coming up from the port of Houston and began its passage through Montana on Wednesday is 20 feet wide, slightly more than 20 feet tall and 290 feet long. It has 90 tires on 24 axles and weighs 917,000 pounds - so heavy that two trucks are attached to the rear to help push it along.
