    Ironton Post nailed him. Tells me that the driver was probably running US-52 and/or the backroads near it. OHP has been running around that area a lot in recent months.

    3 axle trailer so he should be okay to maybe 95000. Still 25k over though.

    Around Sw Arkansas, E TX, and N Louisiana they just use straps. Never see chains around here.

    We call them wrappers(cables)snap chains for extensions and a binder(boomer). Surprised he didn't blow a tire. Oh wait that's not a real logger.

    We call those hayracks.

    Everyone seems to be going to quads or super b's in BC these days. Seeing a lot of spine trailers in Alberta these days - single frame rail trailer with a bunk over the kingpin and one on the back. Tridrive with 2 tridem spine trailers in a B configuration - 10 axles. Look like they've got 9 or 9'6 wide bunks on them too.
