Just a couple of scaffolds up to Great Falls. Then I had to stop and pick up some politicians, I mean airbags, to take back to the shop. IMG_20160204_093347628.jpg

A perfect balance... 13k on steer, 47k on drives and 46,6k on trailer.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

So today was fairly busy for me. First I hauled a chip spreader back to the shop... I hate when the wheels are different widths, I mean the axles on the front are narrower than the back. You have to get off the machine to make sure the ramps are in the right place. chip spreader being secured and hauled on a flatbed trailer

Then I got to move this 270 Komatsu.... 270 Komatsu loader secured to a flatbed trailer

And the last load of the day consisted of road plates. These are the steel plates that you see over portions of the road that have been dug up. large steel road plates being hauled on a flatbed trailer

Started my day with a little loader, 980 CAT 980 CAT loader loaded on flatbed trailer Then I had to max out the truck and trailer and move a D8 about 5 miles from one pit to another.... D8 CAT bulldozer loaded on flatbed trailer Then finished up the day with another 980. The trailer is now breathing a sigh of relief. 980 CAT loader loaded on flatbed trailer

There were 6 chains on the lift. One on each corner, one more on the back and one over the forks.

I was being a smart ass about the dirt. :)

After reading it again I saw that. But, to answer your question, I use straps as it does not cut into the dirt as much.
