  1. Yes it is for a CAT, haul truck type I think. But maybe for a big scraper type water wagon ? One of the other guys said he'd heard the it holds 52,000 gallons ?
  2. When I am at home, I'm in the Kalispell area, about 15 miles outa town. But it seems that road construction keeps me living all over the state more than at home. This job was just east of Thompson Falls. Next week they are ready for side dumps over east, north of Galata. But that will be only 200 miles from the house. Its a big state, over 600 miles across. Some pretty country thru out , but I prefer the western part with the mountains and trees.
  3. I am not going to ever buy a thing that has the NIKE logo on it. They had a good idea for a product, to honor America on the 4th of July, and they caved in because that un-American P O S bitched about a colonial flag on the shoe...
  4. Working on a highway construction job , you get to see some interesting things, But unlike Other Dog, I am never lucky to have the camera handy when those "girls in the car" go by. But we have had a lot of big loads go thru . And there was this hippy van with flowers , rockets and half dogs on the little mud flaps. The old half dogs.
  5. On my way back to my home sweet camper home the other week, I went off the main highway to see if there was any interesting stuff in the fields. Yes there was.... A couple heel boom log loaders and a B with an L cab. A B 70 something , judging by the long hood, hanging out in the tall grass. And 2 Autocar log trucks.
  6. The Peterbuilt had a 350 cummins, 5x4 Spicer boxes , SSHD rears. Not sure how low geared they were. The road fallowed Thompson river , basically level , slightly down grade.
  7. I am sure this has been seen before. I miss placed my good photo, so I took a picture of a picture. When I was logging , I worked in areas of this private road. It was an every day thing pulling doubles or triples . This World Record load gross weight was just under 700,000 pounds. The pict doesn't show it,, there are 7 off hyway loads behind the pete. Logging has slowed from what it was , the reload at the south end of the company road is gone now. This is how it was gone in western Montana. There is a video of this record load.

    I stayed outa town this weekend to maintain the gravel road. We got natural dust control yesterday, so I went for a drive. Montana - Idaho panhandle
  9. Once again I am working away from home , living in my camper . We have some critters that come onto the job , and they take they sweet time getting out of the way.. I saw this flat deck truck in a front yard . And the old jammer skidding rig in the back 40 in a field.
  10. I know we have discussed "HIGHWAT THRU HELL" before, I can't remember what forum we were on??? Last week I watched the episode where Jamie Davis went to the Yukon to retrieve a damaged van trailer. I have hauled lots of everything on a lowboy. Both ground bearing and nonground bearing detatchable type. My question is , " After Jamie disconnected the goose neck from the lowboy deck, What did he do with that goose neck that was hanging on the back of his truck still hooked into the 5th wheel, to be able to use that same truck to hook up to the van trailer to back it onto the lowboy ? If he had had a sissor neck trailer ,, no problem. Or did I miss something?
  11. Yes, it is really amazing . This Smollett issue with all the proof that it was a made up lie. And with all the time and resourses spent, not to mention the other REAL incidents that didn't get the time and man power to investigate. Now charges are dropped..... Then a few years back, the former FBI head went on for over 30 minutes saying what all Ms. Clinton did that was not proper and on and on,..... Then he says there is not enough there to indict her. So she gets off also. ….. But if some brain dead idiot runs into my over sized load , and one of my flags is not red or orange enough,, my ass will probably get hauled to jail.
  12. I watch it on The Weather Channel . I've always wondered if they work for the BC highway dept. you never even hear of payment for their towing or recues . The episode I saw last week showed the first time trying the big push block on Mighty Mo. I would not want that used on the back of my van trailer.

    Ice Roads

    Oops, I screwed up with my model letters, they have a few old g's but mostly 16 h's and newer 16 m's. The one my buddy runs now is a 16m. His old blade was a 16h , set up with a 20 foot mold board... Bout all I can do with a blade is put it on a lowboy, haul it up in the woods on a logging job, off load it and plow out a turn around so I head back to town. Haven't totally figured out the M's with the joy sticks yet..

    Ice Roads

    I should have said "notice the C500 Kenworths" . There are two 1000 HP C500's hooked to the front, and dozer if needed and the 16 blade is hooked to the rear , if they need some breaking help , the blade and ripper bar go down and the 16's tires are no longer on the ground.

    Ice Roads

    They have a few 14's , but mostly 16 h's and g's. Weight isn't a problem. The ice is thick. And the road is on land, over top of the tundra. Here is a drilling rig being moved to another site. 65 feet wide, 200+ feet high, and I think it's 2.3 million pounds. Notice the C500 Kenworth hooked to it. It's something the way they do things up there. Like a 345 excavator and D9 on the same trailer together..
