And I thought the loads of hay bales we stacked on the truck when I was a kid were tall!

When I was in high school three of us picked up square and round bales for three years. One job we had we were using the guys pickup to hale the hay maybe two miles. Don't remember how many bales we put on the pickup. Anyway we pulled out of the field up a steep incline to get to the black top. I was riding on top of the load. It shifted and I tried to hold it all together but I gave up. So me and about half the load ended up on the highway. I didn't get hurt, I let go before we got up any speed going down the road. From then on I rode in the cab of the pickup.

Let's look at that load in the usa.

State fine for overloading $2000
Over weight fine $2000
Failure to keep the commercial vehicle under control $1000
DOT miscellaneous because we can fine $3000
Driver fine $500
Loss of carrier licence for a year ~ $50,000 in lost revenue
Insurance rate increase $2000

edit:
Oh yeah, the operators of that truck are indeed as sharp as a marble.

As a segway, truck loading in some other countries is a stark contrast. In Saud, Jordan, Yemen let's say you have a dump truck and the loader guy puts dirt in it. 8 guys will get in the bed and shovel and smooth the dirt off perfectly and absolutely level with the sides of the box. The excess goes back in the loader bucket and he puts it back where he got it. This 'social event' might take an hour. Weight limits mean nothing, it's a pride thing. Funniest damn thing you ever saw.

On the other hand if it was a freight truck with a canvas cover over the bed, well then the objective is to load it as completely as you possibly can right up to the hooped top of the cover. I saw tandem trucks which over here would take ~30,000 loaded to what,,, 60,000? Tires squashed down and away they go somewhat resembling the tippy truck in the vid. And you know there ain't no way that thing will stop reasonably.

Couldn't take pictures of things like that as the cops would confiscate your camera.

When I was in Vietnam in '66 & '67 I was on the road a lot and saw the darnest things. Those Canadian built British army 4x4 1 1/2 ton Chevys were common as dirt though some had been converted to 4x2. Their were no trucks that we would call heavy trucks, lot of what we call mediums used like heavys. The very late model trucks were all Dodge or Mercedes. Saw a 'K' series International running without the side panels on the hood and it had a small block Chev with bright valve covers that said Corvette and a 4 barrel carb. Also witnessed major repairs on the road side. Dodge trucks seem to have rear axle problems under extreme operating conditions. Have seen them at the side of road having the rear end rebuilt. Also saw various older trucks with rear ends out of our 2 1/2 military under them, wonder how they got into the civilian economy. Heard stories that if a truck had to be abandoned overnight in the bush you could pick up the remains the next day in a 3/4 ton. We were able to recover all of our wrecks before night. I do know of another unit that had one that could not be recovered by night and an EOD team was sent in be chopper to destroy it with explosives.
