Nice loads! Gotta love brand new CAT machinery! I was poking around on the cummins forum and saw a thread like this but it was about what people pull with their cummins, there was a few people with 35,000 pound loads behind their 3500 DRW! Some people with SRW 2500 and 3500 with well over 20,000 pounds

Holy shit 35k on a drw, that will screw some shit up no doubt.
Mine has a Cummins ISX 550hp/1850lb-ft and is plays hell with a 48k load. I could only imagine what that poor little dually is dealing with lol.
I love playing with all the equipment. That 450 backhoe is the one I have now. The lady was like do wanna load it or do you want me to? I said that's a stupid question, of course I wanna load it. I had to stop several times to reposition the arm because it keeps shifting.and coming off the board

I am Escorting another 60 man Survival Systems International, Inc. Capsule that goes on a oil rig on Tuesday, 2nd one in 3 weeks, they are over 12 feet wide, but less then 14 feet wide

I did a bunker for the Seal Team Thursday, it was just short of 14 feet wide

I did a boat last week, it was exactly 14 feet wide, well maybe 13.999 feet wide

i have done 8 oversize loads in the last 11 work days & i turned down about 5 more, due to time & mileage conflicts

================================================== =====================

I always used 5 chains on a back hoe, if it had a 2nd bucket for the hoe, it went under the front bucket. That was when i actually worked for a living

You ever done any of those concrete communication shelters? They're inbetween12-14 wide. Once they know that I know what I'm doing they'll put me on a tri-axle RGN.Trackhoes & those shelters are pretty much all they haul with those. I'm ready for it. And now that I get paid % of the load I'm really ready for it lol
You mean you would take the bucket off and put it under the front bucket? I have 4 - 3/8" chains & 2 - 5/16" chains on this hoe. On the trackhoes all I use are 3/8" chains. And I'll take 4 more ratchets and hook one end to the inside of the track and the other to the rub rail on each corner. Not only because it makes me feel better but another driver told me the tie down spots on these trackhoes don't comply the "4 corners" rule per DOT
And plus when I'm done all the securements together have a 63,800 WLL. And you know as well as I do they will hold way more than that

48,000lbs on deck? Thats feather weight! Dam US laws and not being able to carry weight.
I run quad axle truck and trailer in the states with 65,000 on the deck, and up here across the border the majority of us run super B train trailers and gross 140,000lbs. Thats 95,000lbs on the deck mostly mountian driving.

I run a cummins isx 600 with dpf delete and bully dog programmer. 700hp and 2400+lbs tq

I know right. Well see technically the gvrw on the trk is 81k. I can get permits to run 50k on tandem and spread axle, but my 12k on the steers will be the same. So if I needed to I can gross 112k on 5 axle setup. But of course all your tires have to be rated for the weight they are carrying. But honestly who would want to put the wear & tear of 112k pounds on 5 axles. I know in Michigan, Indiana and other states they pull those covered wagons and easily put 2 - 48k coils in them. I seen one wagon that was tri-axle in the back and 3 spreads for the rest of the trailer. WTF?? I wouldn't know what to do with all that shit. Bridge formula? Wtf is a bridge formula

Look Ma, no ramps



================================================== =====

Personally when i am loading a back hoe, i drive it on to the trailer, it was normally a tilt trailer. I drove it on with the front bucket at the trailer tongue, flipped the bucket scoop down, if there was a 2nd back hoe bucket, it went under that upside down scoop bucket. Then i curled the back hoe bucket all the up, adjusting it so that the back hoe swing stability pin could be dropped in. Then i raised the out rigger pads all the way up & used a small chain on both of them, you don't want the hydraulics bleeding down.
After i lowered the bucket, i checked to see if the Main boom was higher than the cab frame, if it was & i had a extension boom, i extended it & lowered it further down.
Then 1 chain went over curled back hoe boom, 2 nd chain went over front bucket arms.

The rest of the 4 chains went over axles or into the proper tie down points. making sure not to chain over brake or hydraulic lines
The front & rear tractor chains would go into one of 3 patterns
2 forward chains can pull in opposing directions from the rear ones, if they can be run forward, towards the tongue, then the rear chains must go towards the trailers tail end.
If there is not anyway to do that, then all 4 chains must all go towards the center of the tractor at the edges of the trailer.
If it is at all possible, the 4 tractor chains can make an X pattern, like i did with Skip Loaders

If it is done correctly, IF for some reason the whole trailer flips on its side, the back hoe will still be stationary on the trailer.

There are 2 types of Chain Binders, the old fashioned Lever type & the Steamboat Ratcheting type. The Lever type are dangerous & not very trustworthy

Another thing to keep in mind, the chain links themselves from the tie down point to the chain binder should all be in a near perfect line.
A twisted chain can rotate & that loosens the tension, if say, all 4 chains are twisted, & they all back off, you end up with a slightly loosened load.
If you are using the Lever type chain binder & loosening happens, you are in deep manure

Be SAFE my friends

On my last job, we transported equipment, dozers, blades, loaders, back hoes, etc
the company was using stock 3/8s" chain
One day they told us that by a certain date, we had to be using Grade M chain & to get rid of all the old type chain.
If you look at a Grade M chain, about every foot you will see M stamped into the links
some of the old type chain found its way into my garage, it must have followed me home
