Not overlooked, not unseen. . . I was looking for Crosset e'mails that we've gotten in the past to counter with, and sure can't find them. I know from memory that they pay 'hella good' here in Ohio...

Tomster is getting a bit old, for a change, haha!! They offered BIG #s..... so did Transport National .. here in Ohio.

Anyone know how I can shave (even 10) years offa him?!?!?

AndHe ..... I'd LOVE to see you either start a thread or..

YEAH!!!!

So many FUEL HAULERS .. (ie: Suicide Jockey)

Oh yeah, and . . . our own, Daniel Babayev!!! Did his time, too!! Daniel hauled fuel, too!

Flatbedders, I'm SO SORRY to hijack.........

I'd REALLY love a 'fuel haulers' thread!

I don't understand a "stack" of four suicide coils.

If you're talking about coils on a deck settled into dunnage then yes you would use chains.

I agree with Chief Brody. That word "stack" throws some confusion into this. I always use chains on suicide coils. I've never seen a stack of suicide coils though. The word stack implies that one is on top of the other. Suicide coils cannot be loaded in a stack.

Great thread. I had not been following till today. I’m now pulling flatbeds and/or step deck but I don’t consider myself a real flat bedder. I haul the same stuff all the time. Securement is simple with straps and never any tarps.

Are families still buying the huge markers and monuments that were seen a hundred years ago in older cemeteries? I can't guess what those would cost now.

I'd like to know, as well. Saw one on a VERY similar set up, come up our road a few days ago, heading to Shauck Cemetery. There's a LOT of old money/old family names here in Shauck... and most of what's left to expand is all pre bought, Tom says. (Land wise.)

Another cemetery up the road in Lexington (the rich folks live there) have MOSTLY stuff that size, or bigger. Oak Grove.. Google it... it's like a 'granite' farm, haha!

It's awesome, actually, PJ! Color me intrigued; thanks for FINALLY posting up in here... LoL!!

(Told ya!!!)

People buy monuments of all sizes. Those two uprights are oshuatries. They hold urns. More and more cemetaries are running out of room and going the cremation route.
