    I would say 18ft wide was probably about right. Maybe 16ft tall at the most, about 15 long and not very heavy or at least legal weight cause it was on a 48ft step deck. Plus, he was able to catch and pass me going through the rolling hills of Kentucky and I was running the speed limit but I don't pull the hills at max boost so I slow down on them some.

    Obviously I'm not experienced in super loads or anything oversize but I just have never seen 4 pilot cars with one load like this unless they had a police escort also.

    Yes it is. Without the pin-on third axle, which we put back on Friday.

    Here’s KY’s escort requirements. From your estimated dimensions he would need the cars he had. A95057A8-7ABB-45A2-8765-6A632FE8754D.png
    At 18’ wide I’d be taking up 2 of the 3 lanes available. I’m currently 16’ wide and when there’s 3 lanes we are almost always in the right two lanes, especially in the states where we can do the speed limit.

    Not sure what they were. Some kind of tank. They were on pivots and would swing out. The pivot points looked too small for them to be counter weights.

    Loaded this stamping press up today in CT heading back to Milwaukee. The control cabinet is hard wired into the machine with some fairly hefty cable. No way to detach it without opening stuff and ripping wires out.

    Hauled this out here a few months ago on the 3 axle flat but all the weight for it sits on the outside edges of the trailer. Didn't like how much the edges of the trailer were flexing at the time so decided to drag the RGN out here this time. A little heavier but much more stable.

    It's a decent trailer make sure you open it up and inspect the umbilical cord. We had three of them in our fleet.

    You always seem to make a pretty good looking tarp.
