Thanks Rob!

Caterpillar power all the way :yes:

Light-weight on the truck itself is 26,500 lbs.

A typical heaped tri-axle load of PA bituminous coal gross weighs at roughly 70,000 lbs or so. It's hard to get the legal 73,280 when you are hauling prepared soft coal, if it is a nice load with lots of lumps. Thus the reason why it is stacked to the moon in those photos.

Anthracite is usually heavier so there isn't much trouble making legal weight, and then some. When we still hauled coal out of the Pine Creek breaker, we topped the loads off by hand with a shovel as it came off the shaker. We got to be so good at judging it that we could usually come out within 100-200 pounds variance from one load to the next.

Sorry Dremel for hi-jacking your thread

I thought maybe Dremel was pranking us for April Fools a day early.

Coaljockey, When you're grossing over 70,000 lbs are you in compliance with the bridge formula? As I recall that requires about 46' outer bridge for 4 axles. Or is there an exception?

Back when I hauled oversize stuff lots of states had goofy exceptions, depending upon commodity and where the load originated. For instance Indiana would let you haul a combine without a permit, but not a bulldozer. And if you used the outriggers on the trailer they would write you up for an overwidth trailer even though the load was larger and legal. South Carolina was just the opposite. Earth movers were fine, oversize agricultural equipment required a permit. Similar weight exceptions for freight originating at a port in the state or for local grown produce. I carried a large loose leaf notebook with a summary of each state's requirements.
