What's the max weights up there, and the type of traikers for those loads?

I would imagine it's similar to here and dependant on the permit they run. The quad axle trailers we run are rated to 140k but in Indiana and Ohio, we can only get a permit up to 120k gross weight. In Michigan, we're plated for 150k.

Yeah, I had that figured out. I wanted to get the facts from a Canadian driver from Canada with a Canadian commercial license.

My trailer had 5 axles and was permited for 92,000 cargo, that seems to be what most of our trailers are. I haven’t been doing this long enough to pick up on all the rules so I call the office when ever Im in doubt. Our company has some 6 axle trailers but Im not sure what the max is for them. This load was only the 3rd 90,000 one Ive pulled. Its surprising how much difference every couple thousand pounds make to the handling the higher you go.

Delivered the latest load this morning. It was a heavy 12,422 lb trailer load of Johns Manville insulation that I brought from Monroe, GA to the delivery in Grand Rapids, MI. Ended with 875 total miles on this one. Spring is just starting up here. Trees have not started blooming, nor any hints of green. I did see some more turkeys, so watch out for low and slow flying objects for another month.

Delivered the latest load this afternoon. It was a 43,670 lb load of Kellogg's products (don't know what because the BOL was all numbers). Pulled it from Grand Rapids, MI to Breiningsville, PA for 682 miles.
