    I've had this account for a while but never really posted. I've got quite a bit of photographs that I don't do much with so I figured I should share them! This was taken in Garden City, KS. This truck is from our Wind Division.

    Let me know what you think!

    I didn't get the size! It's odd, because he's hauling giant blades as it is, but he still gets it LOL!

    At that kind of length, adding even 5 feet doesnt really matter because you just permit it for the extra length. Its usually escorted regardless at wind blade lengths, so its not like hes saving on permit/escort costs

    True that I was thinking of more of a turn radius problem. Several guys I've spoken to with big houses say they don't have any problems with them. But obviously, the others who work with them say it's not the case. Either way it's still BIG AND NOICE!

    Ehh, fair enough, i can run about 8.5 feet off the front of my trailer, standard sleeper, about 5 foot stretch. Turning radius is a little worse, but when i do that what you find is swinging say right, you have to watch out for your left side front overhang as well. In his case he doesnt really have that to worry about (front overhang isnt really ever a problem) and his rear is steerable.

    In my case its not too terrible when running general freight unless im pulling a 53 foot and going to the northeast. I have the turn radius screws on my steers turned out a few more than normal and that does okay
     
    Deshano Thanks this.
