Weight: 130,500 pounds gross (see note below). Dimensions: 14′-12′′Width: 14′-12′′Height: 14′-12′′ (Over 13′-9′ requires a height survey). There are three types of tridems – single, tandem, and triple. The dimensions of these loads are considered super loads when they exceed them.

It is necessary to review anything that exceeds the routine issue dimensions. Any load exceeding 10 feet wide requires an Oversize Load Sign. For loads over 8’6″, an 18″ red flag must be displayed at the widest point and at the four corners.
Heavy Haul job completed from Connecticut to Texas
A client bought a 2002 Cat D10R Crawler Doze and needed it hauled to his construction site for a job starting Monday. Because this was a rush haul, we worked on it all night even though the customer called after hours. Once we located a flatbed driver, we told them to bring a friend so they could be a team and drive the equipment down to get to the job ASAP. The customer was very pleased with our service.
