If you run out of that type of work, you can buy a dredge! Good luck with your projects.
I agree.

In the summers I spent all summer with my famillies company it is where I learned how to weld, operate cranes, work as a mechanic. Worked around boats and on boats. Loading equipment on barges. The most expensive parts I have loaded on a boat is helecopter parts that were worth a million dollars. Or your loading 50,000 dollars worth of lumber onto a barge for a house that is being built up coast.

The loggers move their equipment up coast they load 3 Hitachi 350 Roadbuilder excavators a log loader and a fuel truck with 15,000 dollars worth of fuel in it onto a barge and head up and down the coast.

Oh yeah GR, well every year the USCG sends a billion dollar piece of equipment down to Antarctica to break ice. One year I was responsible for changing the lights bulbs on it during the voyage.

Top that.

Bob! Don't feed the fire. GR wastes valuable space on these threads with his whining.

Sorry Bob I couldn't help it you set that up perfectly


BM cool pics again and yeah they do get pretty picky around here about weight and speed. You can haul the same load with the same truck and get scaled several times but suddenly one of those times your overloaded on an axle and have to move the fifth wheel

Ya Andrew we have a eager beaver 25ton triaxle tag trailer behind our tandem sterling dump truck. As far as over width it only hangs over an inch or two on each side because of the 28" tracks instead of the 24" ones. The sterling handles it just fine, we used to have it on a 22 ton tandem tag and it would like to sway a bit but now with the third axle it makes a huge difference.

Junior they are 8 foot sheets
