    I see the occasional load posted that says it's a conveyor and I honestly have no idea what that means. There is one up I just looked at that says "conveyor, square and simple."

    the other meaning "might be", to transport from point A to point B.....

    "you are conveying the load from one place to the other"

    So they are literally just conveyer belts? I assumed it was something more than just that with the weights listed. Well, thanks guys I guess I was just overthinking it.

    I'd have to go way back and find some pics. Conveyor loads can be nice and simple, or a real pia.

    If its an industrial converyor good luck . its anything but simple. 7 hours to pad and tarp this monstrosity. Pictures dont do it justice. If you ever haul it and it needs tarped just make sure u negotiate the cost of a brand new tarp into the rate , because its almost impossible to not have at least a couple tears with a load like this.

    All conveyor loads, all had to be fully tarped.
