that cant be for real??? someone drove that ....thats like a train on wheels
i like to know whats in the black box lol
I use to move loads like that with a similar set up. If you look closely, some of those 'jeep' axles aren't dual wheels, they are actually triples, two standard duals on the outside and a third wheel inside the frame.
We primarily hauled parts for nuclear powerplants with those units, but also hauled huge magnets for Morton Thiokol.
Some of our loads were in the 750,000 to 1 million pound range. My max load ever was 725,000 pounds. It took 3 drivers, 2 in the front, one in the rear. We could travel between the hours of 02:00 and 06:00. I had to sign a paper that said I wouldn't divulge the contents or the destination of the load.
We had 2 pilot cars and 8 state police cars as escort. Other police cars closed off entrance ramps to the freeways we were on for 15 minutes before we passed until 30 minutes after we passed.
Two trucks were allowed to travel per night from the loading point and each truck had to use a different route to the destination.
Just for information, a company I was leased to also sent us to Alaska on some runs to Prudhoe bay. The highway is called the Dalton highway and also known as the 'Haul' road. Our loads at that time were only in the 250,000 pound range.
That was back when trucking was still fun. The rates were also a joy to receive. I paid for my truck and almost half of my trailer with the proceeds of just one of the Prudhoe Bay loads.
