Single Light Pole-Jim The Trucker Video Series

This is just a single hexagonal light pole made of steel, the same kind I have hauled before but just a single one this time. I wanted to show to those who have not seen any what it takes to tie this fairly simple load down. You will encounter this at a few companies as they have a lot of different people hauling them.

Reserve Tank Jim The Trucker Video Series

This reserve tank had it’s own difficulties to deal with due to the total lack of tie down spots. I explain also how a load can become an oversize as this one did at the start, and how we fixed it. The loaders overlooked the overwidth portion and we had to remove weight for some of the load sue to overweight axles. I will go into details on how this happened and what steps it took to get everything legal and safe for transport.

Wind Farm Blade Carriers-Jim The Trucker Video Series

This is a very unusual type of load for me as I had never seen this type of blade carrier before. The ones I have hauled are much different. This type can be seen hauling the blades on train cars and not so much on the long blade carrier trucks., or at least that is what I have seen for myself.

Empty Propane Tanks-Jim The Trucker Video Series

These empty propane tanks were a bit wild to load. It took a lot of time to get them right but the man loading them was very good at the job. It is all he does and he reminded me of that Nave Seal Marcus Luttrell. It was not him of course but he really reminded me of him. We got along just fine and as you can see the load was hairy. Anything could go wrong loading and strapping, we just took our time. The snow storm delayed me and I was in zero hurry with this kind of load. You can bet I was glad it all went well and was safely delivered.
