Hmnn-think the drives might be a little overweight??😎

The whole thing'd be overweight...

A bare D7G weighs 44,600lbs add the Scrub Canopy & Blade . You're at 50,000lbs (or more) They'd be Grossing at least 135,000lbs I would Think..

i used to have "S" tags on my lowboy trailer. i was good for 215,000 lbs with the 14/24 tires on the trailer and 12/24 tires on the tractor. 

when you are up to your armpits in alligators,

it is hard to remember you only came in to drain the swamp..

OH no argument. I was just looking at those tandems on that corn binder. No need for power steering though😃.  But I  look at the new low boy trailers that are currently listed for sale at dealers here in New England.  Tri axles the majority and seems most have provisions for jeeps, fourth axle etc etc.  Then a lot of tractors are triaxles. 

I look at "old days" photos......Single axle AC  pulling a tandem trailer with a huge Northwest sitting on deck😎.  But again the hauling equipment keeps pace with the equipment they are expected to haul.

I was remembering a Popular Science mag article when I was a kid on the newest big Cat- I think it was a D-8 ...225HP!

Wow-any clue on distance of the  haul?  Any clue as to  how many man hours it takes just to remove the boom/bucket?

I found the Pic on an Australian heavy haul page.. I think It was an Internal site transfer on a Mining Lease.

They mentioned that; the Gross Weight was 670 metric Tonnes..

 

I've NFI on your manhour Question.. Sorry.

Thx- I was just thinking that getting th boom, dipper and bucket off as a unit would have to take a huge amount of weight off-which would lead to fewer tractors and axles?????
