    urch55, you have been here a month. You may be a welding SOB, but don't call me down like you are the great almighty moderator.
    Why are you so touchy, And for you being here a few years should show an example on how to talk to some one with out being nasty and calling names to me or my mother she did not do anything to you. so really who is out of line here. You are mad because it's the truth on how this thread got started. And you are out of line. but that's okay. No problem I forgive you for your name calling. And I am sorry for offending you in any way....And for any body that reads this thread I am sorry you had to see this in the open . In one sense everone knows the facts and you can be the judge...Take care every one.

        Well, Bob, I didn't mean to bring your mom into this. Sorry about that. If you will read my past posts, you will see that I am not normally a trouble maker here but I will stand up for myself either here or in person. Your post calling me down on a minor thread drift was out of line on your part. I posted the link because it is related to the topic. Look up thread drift if you don't understand what I am saying. If I get kicked from this forum for stating my opinions that's also fine. Have a great day and I consider this subject closed.
        Jim

            Yeah, sorry. I just don't appreciate being called down for something that wasn't wrong.

                  IN Maine we can haul 100,000 lbs. down the road without having to have any permits. I know I have the fines to prove it. The biggest load I have run wheight 162,000 lbs. behind a Western Star truck like the one in the photo.

                      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.
                      they are being used at a local steel mill where i live thats all i know and yes 2 different companies did the transporting apprently i took them 90 mins 2 get the the spot

                        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.
                        the truck and trailers are equipped with hydraulics that turn the wheels kinda neat 2 accutally see this done

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.?

                          i heard that 4 tanks cost round million and we r building another 4 very soon and the shells are 2 inch thick so go figure

                              We are here to help with info and to be supportive of newer guys and ones that might not know the different proceduers within the welding trade, so if you don't mind TAKE IT SOME WHERE ELSE.

                                Yes they do. When we were building the Natural Gas power plants out west of Phoenix about 5 years ago, the "radiators" came in on special rail cars, and transported via "tugs" on 37 axle trailers to the job. Top speed, 12 MPH They were hoisted in place with a 700 ton crane
