Lee,
That's a helluva nice looking load. If I didn't know better I'd say you were a bona fide scrap dealer! You boys need another project or two. See you in July.

Well... Looks Good to me.... What I do is get Her Loaded and go like Heck to minimize your time on the Road so the Wrong guys don't see you. Steam Engine weight 14,150 with No Water. Trailer GVW 21,000. Trailer wt. 5,200. Brakes on ALL Axles. See, it's not as Bad as it looks.

Nice pair of Massey 25's Lee, it looks like you have an unstyled green one and a styled red one, do you plan to restore them both? or make one from the two.
Maybe you will get them done just in time for The Massey National Show, July 15th and 16th in Waverley Nebraska, would be great to see them there.

Malcolm.

great PIcs,
was that load legal in your area? Dad and I just made our new years day sneak. About a 30 Mile run hauling a Cat Fifty with cable blade. I dont know exactly what she weighed but it had to be well over tweny thousand! We used a backhoe trailer and our old sevendys vintage Dodge one ton. That old dodge didn't want any more! she wouldn't pull it in fourth gear! Top speed was about 25 mph. I am glad we didn't meet Mr. DOT as I would have gotten to pay for the tractor twice! Good work and good load.
Good luck with your restoration,
Beau NElson

Not to sound like I'm being a mean person but the reason for D.O.T rules is so that people on the roads are safe.I always find it amazing though how D.O.T is so hard on truckers but pickup trucks and trailors always seem to sneak thru,sort of speak. How would feel if something heavy that you were hauling illegally came off the trailor and killed someone? Dan Sheldon

Don's point is well made. I think the problem most of us have with the D.O.T. is not the safety aspect. Folks should be expected to operate their equipment safely and within its design parameters. It is the D.O.T.'s obsession with whether or not paperwork is in order or whether someone is making money on the deal that chaps my hide.
