    Its the largest irrigation load I've grabbed so far. Had to use every winch.

    Its under on gross but the spread is over on both, but not much.

    Is DOT going to fuss over that?

    Can you get to US 75?
    Only place you may have issues is scale in Oklahoma/Texas line, but they usually closed on weekend/nights
    gets close enough, can avoid more in TX

    Is that a pivot? I ####ing HATE pivots and will never haul one. That delivery can be an absolute nightmare.

    Those deliveries I usually have to follow someone out to the job site and I gotta meet them at a truck stop somewhere. Then I usually drive out to some field.

    This load may not make it to a field though

    Yeah, I gave up on pivots when I had to spend hours driving up and down a field with a crew on the trailer dropping pieces of the pivots as we went. I get why they do it but it didn't pay enough. This was back when I was very new at Prime, now that I've got more experience there is no way in hell I'd let guys on my trailer while the trucks in motion.

    Bottom line, it's over. If you accept it that way, and come across a scale, it's on you. You had room on the drives, almost 9k worth..they could have reworked that load to put more of the heavier stuff up front or shift it more forward. It's kind of hard to see but do you have more palletized boxes on the back? For instance, taking those tires off the front, and putting them on the back and shifting those poles up top to sit over top of that front box may have made the load completely balanced and underweight on the axles as well. As you note, it's not over gross...the problem is, it is over on the axles and that CAN get you bit.
