Heavy Equipment Hauling
If your flatbed trailer is inadequate because your shipment is too wide, heavy, tall or a heavy equipment hauling method is the only choice, then McClymonds Supply and Transit is the right resource for the job.
Oversize equipment hauling , also called overweight, superload or over dimensional means that a truck tractor with a trailer has an overweight or over dimensional load that exceeds regular permit parameters specifically associated with those types of loads. The state regulates the weight and size of the superload, and an oversize equipment hauling job may exceed standard sizes. The oversize load must be non-reducible, which means it cannot be made to fit standard dimensions for hauling. The oversize equipment hauling must consist of a single unit that exceeds a combined gross weight of 80,000 pounds for the trailer, truck and item to be shipped.
Oversize Equipment Hauling
Equipment that may be necessary for a heavy load includes:
Trailers that may be up to 20 axels.
The Legal Requirements for Overweight, Oversize and Superloads
Understanding the legal considerations, technical challenges and permits of pulling an oversize equipment hauling job is vital to having a successful shipment.
Generally, states require that many oversize loads have a certified pilot/escort vehicle operator (P/EVO) to protect other motorists and the load itself. The P/EVO escorts the superload from its original location to its final destination without damaging highways, bridges, roads, motorists, the load, control devices, wires, overhanging objects or signs.
McClymonds Supply and Transit will manage the entire process to transport your superload from start to finish including obtaining permits, escort or pilot cars, and any additional special equipment that may be needed to haul the load safely.
