    Yeah, gotta love that crap.

    I loaded pipe in the rain that was stored outside (houston). Then proceeded to tarp.....in the rain. Then the guy unloaded me in a big dirt lot and tossed the pipe on the ground....no boards underneath.....nothing. FML.

    Hahah oh man. I hauled 2 million pounds last year on my own . We had 6 drivers totdal did close to 10 million pounds.. This years been pretty slow for the rocks. Just 3 of us pretty much all summer...dont worry they have a whole mountain filled with these rocks...we have not even made a dent in it.

    ^^^ I'll admit I struggled a bit with this one. I'm not used to building my loads "up," if you know what I mean. LOL

    Kyle,

    on that plastic tube rolls in the center are you just crossing them on top or do you run the strap down the inside and out the bottom on other? I’ve never hauled that stuff.

    Thanks

    I run them through the center. 4 straps per stack (We call them silos). Toss the hook end inside and pull it through the pallet, then pull the other end over the top and outward at an angle. This way you are pulling down and out in 4 directions at once. It's a pita but once its done it rides real nice and stays tight and you don't have to worry about it.

    Next time I haul them I will take better pics.
