    How about this one. Huge generator moves through South Carolina Talk about an overweight, oversize load.
    In South Carolina, the international moving company Mammoet is moving an industrial generator that weighs nearly 2 million pounds from Jasper County to a county in western North Carolina.
    The load consists of a power generator and transport rig weighing 1.89 million pounds and will be transported on two multi-wheeled hydraulic trailers at a speed of between 5 mph and 20 mph, according to a news release from the South Carolina Department of Transportation.
    According to the Augusta Chronicle, the generator and special carrier are 23 feet tall, 28 feet wide and 300 feet long. The carrier has more than 100 tires.

    The loads that I usually pull are wind towers, and we can get 195' long on a REGULAR basis! We can travel sometimes 400 miles in a day also.
