    Here are a few pics of the jobs I've been doing last week.... We hauled 56 of those mafia blocks... I didnt think they were that heavy, Till on my second last load, I asked the guy at the factory, how much they actually weigh cause they sure seemed heavy... He said a meter of concrete weights 5500 lbs and there are .9 of a meter so really close... I was like :eek: HOLY CRAP... Im a little over 10,000 lbs overweight :laughing:
    5500 lbs X 4 = 22,000 lbs + 4,660 lbs trailer = alot of weight LOL....

    Other pics are of a 12,000 lbs roller, That was a nice haul but it really didnt feel that heavy... Maby cause I was used to the mafia blocks by then LOL

    I like the cement blocks. I've been shopping for some here. I didn't know they weight that much, I thought they were 2300lbs each for the 2'x2'x4' . What did you or your client pay for those? I was quoted $45ea I can get them delivered and placed for $250

    Why would you transport them standing up?

    Cuz it looks cooler and they have more chances of falling over... Hope hes got something under the strap to stop it from fraying.

    Sorry Chad I didn't want to cut your loading skills, just wondering that's all.

    Nothing pulls better than a fifth wheel trailer, good luck with it.

    Good question, But its the only way to haul them, they have a hole thru the middle them, about 6" above center so when they move them with the loader they stand upright and dont spin and do circles on the two pieces of pipe which stick into the sides of them.... So laying them down is not even an option...

    Cre, your not gonna belive it, but when i had that roller on, I turned right to jump on to the expressway and what do you know, I cop standing in the middle of the road with that green vest on, just like your picture....I was like you gotta be kidding me... So i just crept up the on ramp toward him, drove by gave him a wave and what do you know, right after me he tells the car behind me to stop.... So I thought fursure he was gonna pull me over but what do you know, he busted the car behind me, guess he didnt come to a complete stop or something LOL... plus I drove by 2 more cops with that thing on.... I think I should have bought a lottery ticket yesterday, I hualed 56 of those stones, so 14 loads, 308,000 lbs LOL

    Yup its a 3500


    Ya it is only 2 7K axles, and its a gooseneck, but same thing as a fifth wheel... Looking back, I probally should have asked how much those blocks weighted on the first load not near the last load LOL... I honestly didnt think they weighted near that much... Anyone else got pics of thier truck haulin heavy? :drinkup:
