    Please don't tell us you bought a 55 ton three axle. To heavy for light work and not enough axles for heavy work. And pulling it with a regular hiway truck.

    Don’t get me involved, I’m just a worn out old lowbed driver trying to stay retired!

    1.Have you ever operated an excavator?
    2. Have you ever driven an excavator up on a RGN and properly secured it.
    3.If 1&2 are no, who the F@@@ wants their excavator moved by someone who has never done it?
    4. If 1 and 2 are yes, carry on driver!

    You forgot "If it's raining and the RGN deck is wet and the tracks on the shovel are muddy and wet and one steering clutch is really grabby and you're sitting on a side hill steep enough for the gooseneck to slide sideways over the drive tires, and it's still raining and you skipped lunch to get here on time, and your boots leak, and you're one hour away from curfew---what should you tell your wife when you call her to come pick you up?"
    Can anybody else think of something that might not have come up when the OP is doing his six hour ride along?
