0914454001599430708.jpg0873528001599430772.jpg Hi all it's been a while since I have posted. I'm currently sitting at the Novelis mill in Oswego NY waiting for my paperwork. I normally load 5 coils but tonight it was only two with the placement being the first two coils placed towards the front of the Rol-Tight then a space and the last three coils placed over the tripple axels. The coils usually weigh a little over 12k and change (I usually pull between 62k and 65k.) So I figured with just the two coils I would load them as close to center as I could get them. Should I have placed them closer together? Or should I have placed them both forward closer to the drives? All and all everything has been going good the company has been keeping me busy the last couple of weeks.

The trailer has three axels it's a heavy duty made by Rehinhour? Rittenhour? That was my Sunday load Monday I pulled a full load of 5 coils down to Middletown NY, yesterday was 5 coils to Saratoga Springs NY. Then last night I took three coils down to Middletown. I positioned one coil forward and the other two over the first two Axel's.
