Titan Heavy Haul 800,000 lbs


Recommended Posts

Perkins Specialized Transportation of Northfield, Minn. used heavy-haul Titans to move 800,000 lb. generator vessels from San Onofre, Calif., to Clive, Utah. The job was so massive that it required three Titans in total -- one in front and two pushers behind the nearly 300-foot long trailer.

41 Chevy thanks for posting this

WOW!! Now that is a heavy haul load. I would really like to hear that MP10 screaming up the hill

They had a Titan at the Mack Factory tour in Macungie. Pretty cool trucks!

Pretty cool stuff there - they even bring along their own National crane for kicks. I wish they had shown more close ups of how they have the rear tractors coupled up.

I think the Perkins Heavy Haulage site has some photos of the "tow bar" set up. Paul

I'd bet 4 237 horse U models could have done that.

You'd have to put really long kick stands on them as the counterweights may not be far enough over to keep them upright and forget about right turns
