Popular Post other dog Posted November 4, 2019 Popular Post Share Posted November 4, 2019 I had to go to Waynesboro, Va. and load a high load on a double drop-deck trailer last week. First time i'd pulled one of them, and knew nothing about it. But don't worry they said, you won't have to break it down. The load was 11 and a half feets tall, then I found out that it had to be tarped- good thing I had some help, took 5 people to get that giant size tarp up there. Looks good there, but it was completely destroyed by the time I got to Augusta, Ky. with it. Then I had to go from Augusta to Dixon, Il. to pick up a lift coming back to Va. for the rigging co. that we moved the equipment to Ky. for. But don't worry they said, you won't have to break the trailer down- they'll set it right on you, just chain it and go. I stopped at a rest area on 39 that night. It was looking like this the next morning. So I get to the lift getting place, and they inform me that I do have to break that trailer down. It was most difficult, because you really need ramps on the truck frame for the rollers on the gooseneck to climb, and I did not. And, you really need for the airline going to the 5th. wheel to be unbroken so you can slide your 5th. wheel, and I did not. So after a titanic struggle in the cold and snow, I finally got it apart. This is the lift, at Maysville, Ky. the next morning. This is how they unloaded it- That's how I thought they would load it. Saw some big Mack trucks in Grayson, Ky.
