Forgot to post these the other day. A dozen "crane mats" (about 12" x 12" x 20' wood beams attached together with some kind of rebar or something) going from Conyers, GA to an energy project construction site in Oregon, OH (right near Toledo)

Mini excavators, Georgia to Utah. Each of these weigh about one-fifth of what those Montana excavators come to.

Yep, up here we grow them bigger than they do in Texas... I have hauled some of those mini's too then it rained and they grew up. FYI, the end with the drive sprocket is the heaviest end of the track. Just keep that in mind when you start moving something bigger.

What no more photos? I have been hauling a belly dump train for the last 2 weeks and I only have this photo ... This is one of our trucks pulling a single. I took this photo sitting at the top of the hill waiting my turn to get loaded.

OK, Pat, here's a photo of a load of 7 miles of pipe stacked on a stepdeck headed to Arizona. Let's not talk about trailer tires today, though, alright?

Stepdeck:

A stepdeck , also referred to as "dropdeck", is a type of flatbed trailer that has one built in step to the deck to provide the capabilities of loading higher dimensional freight on the lower deck.

Not very sexy, perhaps, but this is what we deliver a LOT of. This was my second load of ISO today. We also do a fair amount of shingles, rolls of rubber, and other roofing products like pavers. One thing I love about flat bedding is the diversity. Like this job, for example. I get to the school that is being roofed and the contractor says, "Okay, just back up on the grass between the pine tree and our crane. I'll stop you a couple of feet from the building, and we'll unload you with the crane." Okey dokey.white Ryder flatbed truck loaded with construction materials

That looks so cool. Love the way it is strapped down on the lowboy. Nice job.
