    That trailer's gotta scrub something fierce when you turn.

    How much does one of those tanks weigh?
    Syncrowave 250DX
    Invison 354MP
    XR Control and 30A

    Airco MED20 feeder
    Thermal Dynamics Cutmaster 81
    Smith O/A rig
    And more machinery than you can shake a 7018 rod at

      Wow, that's quite a tank! Who is the end user of such a big tank?

      That's quite a trailer too! Looks like it has 16 axles. I'm wondering one thing though, why so many axles in the middle of the trailer when it appears the tank is only resting on 2 points and doesn't appear to be supported by the trailer at all through most of the middle? Seems like the weight is all on the first 4 axles and last 4 axles and the 8 axles in the middle don't appear to be carrying anything...

      Now that I look at it again, there are 2 different trucks and 2 different trailers, one trailer with 12 axles and one with 16 axles.

          Fishy Jim, I was thinking the exact same thing.

          I have a triple axle trailer that I built for hauling my 12000Lb. Hilo around on and I thought mine scrubed bad when turning, I cant imagine that trailer.

          Cool pics.

            I suspect this thing would have pivoting axles or even that the wheels are on pivoting spindles,Frank

                    And doesn’t DOT have a formula for so many square inches of rubber on the road for so many pounds of weight being carried?

                      Dang,

                      Wonder if I could get one of them delivered to the shop.

                      I'd need to change out the valve though, for a CGA580. I'd be using it for argon. (Yeah, right.)

                        Yes this is true. In Florida an 18 wheeler can carry 80,000 that's GVW. based on the standard bridge length. that is why you see trailers with a wide spread tandem axle to spread the load on the road. Trucking rules change very often, it seams more when the states. need more money I bet thoes tanks cost a pretty penny just for over load permits. Does anybody know how much thoes tanks weight.?

                          This really has nothing much to do with the thread, okay, maybe a little, but here's an interesting link if you are into heavy hauling. BTW, I saw one of the dual lane rigs here a couple of weeks ago. The biggest truck/trailer I've ever seen by far!!
