Thanks PJ… I haul the result only.

You’ll never catch me feeding the grinder. Although you can’t see in the pic, the the excavator can is caged on every exposed side. I’ve seen the grinder launch firewood size logs a hundred feet in the air at high velocity.

Fortunately mayhem only occurs on the opposite side of where the excavator is operating. Even so, I wear eye protection and a hard hat within 50’ of this thing. The debris it throws on the “operators” side is small, but can hurt you if impact occurs with any part of the body, especially head and face. I keep my distance and walk quickly from the truck to the loader.

G you are more industrios than I. That is cool, just not for me. Stay safe sir!!!!

I know you already told me about your gig earlier but congrats again! Looks like a ton of fun. I just started a new local gig myself hauling pneumatic trailers delivering concrete powder so I know what the PTO is now!

Whoa you can’t just slide that in there like that Pianoman! Did anything happen with systems? I’d be curious in hearing more about this gig. I don’t think anyone here actively hauls pneumatic.

SAME SAME SAME, from a Tank fam... that kept in touch w/ Mr. Paul (other half did for longtimes) and we know NOTHING?!?!?

You've jumped ranks, JUSTLY, in this career path, Pianoman. (Do you even remember the video you shared with usn's, back in the day? Tom's looking to see it... you owe us a RE POST!)

Best always, with the what's & why's!!!! Pining to know more, as well!

My first permit load (width 9’ 8”, weight 67,000lbs), end of April… slow to post. I had help… lead lowboy driver was there to offer guidance and support. Longest trailer I’ve ever driven 57’.

This machine is a beast for sure… sheers and bunches. Scoped out location at dawn…in a light mist. As if my stress level wasn’t already heightened.

That's really cool G-Town!

I'm betting you never dreamed you'd be pulling RGN trailers and heavy equipment when you were in CDL Training. You've come a long way.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.
