Just watched something on PBS last night. Kind a knock off of Discovery channel. They showed how they take raw materials and make something> last night was a similar dump to what you hauled.

150k?, what are you scared to haul real load or something? I bet Ray can come give you hand if you need some help getting that up a hill! lol. Oh Ray I dropped those injectors off to get cleaned and ready to go in Im gonna try to get started on the exhaust soon, I actually have some spare time again after tomorrow, gotta get that turbo in here then I can slap it all together with some zip ties and chewing gum and hope for the best. I only made 24lbs of boost the other day hauling two old R models on a lowboy trailer up hill at about 75mph, I think the 84 pulled better than the 85, it had the 540hp euro turbo and 20% on the pump.

If that's a re-weigh ticket, what was where on the first weigh?

first one was l;ighter. I topped off with fuel and move the 5th wheel 1 notch forward. then went back and hit it again. it was something like 148 and change 149k

I'd love to move some of that heavy stuff. The size and weights don't worrie me it the legal stuff like escorts, permits, restrictions, that's why I try to stay under any thing 10ft wide and I have to know where I'm going and if I can get there unseen. I just put signs on and go or take them off when I have to.

160k on a 793?, did it have any tires on it? I thought they were on up in the weight closer to 250k empty. I would guess no bed just a chassis and no tires to get you to 160k.

I'll have to get on the other comp that has the pics. Ran about 6 of them. Hated them as they had no wiggle room and always heavier then what they said

Yeah those things are monsters, only thing CAT makes bigger is the 797 and I doubt a whole chassis could go by truck theyre so damn heavy. Im glad you don't mind paying with the big stuff, somebody has to do it, I think the rules and other b.s. keep most folks out of the real heavy stuff.
