Hi everyone,

Found this video while surfing around youtube searched here and couldn't find it so figured I'd share it. I apologize in advance if its already been posted or if this is the wrong section. I didn't get a chance to watch it all had to leave for work but the beginning seemed cool. Nothing new though have to haul overweight to survive.

Thanks for posting the video.
Kentucky is very serious about the coal hauling, as you heard in the video, coal haulers can legally weigh 120,000 lbs. . That is only for coal, a regular freight hauler can only legally gross 80,000lbs. without a permit.

As a trucker, I can identify with everything stated in the video. I've hauled loads illegally that puckered my butt cheeks more than once. Hauled an oversized steel coil once.........couldn't cross the scale as I was weighing in at over 91,000lbs. , so I took the back roads. Didn't know until I was 1/4 mile from it that the bridge had a 30,000lbs. weight limit...........ain't turnin a 70 foot articulated vehicle around in a 1 lane dirt driveway. So I lined up with the bridge and stomped the throttle.

I've never hauled coal............my FIL told me enough stories that I stayed away from it.

Hand Fed Coal Furnace: Clayton 1600M
Coal Size/Type: Bituminous. Labeled as 'Big Vein', about the size of acorns. Makes a lot of ash, but heats well and lasts longer than my previous coal.
