I call 18th my Gettin home gear!

I call that the "suck the bottom out of the fuel tank while lugging the engine" mode.

This is because there are plenty of morons out there that would drive that way fully loaded.

Oooh I've heard it over and over again, argued with every damn driver I had over it . They all said "it's a cat, you can lug it"

Maybe hauling fu$#ing toilet paper, not 140,000lbs ffs!!

I run 17th at 100km 62mph ish.... and turn around 1600 rpm for the heavy load, 18th is solely for passing or blowjob day when I just gotta do 120km to get home lol

This all being said, once i get my ISX swap done, I'm gonna swap out the gear ratio if i go back to heavy hauling..... it's just too hard on the driveline and engine to lift off with such tall gears.

RE: What would you have done differently??
I have 12 pieces of 12” pipe on the deck. 3 pieces of dunnage on the deck, then 7 pipes then three more pieces of dunnage and the final five pipes.

I used three 3” straps as belly straps. 42’ long pipe, so I used another six 3” over the top. Then, just the top five pipes I wrapped a 2” strap all the way around just the top five pipes. It doesn’t connect to the trailer anywhere. I tightened that one as much as I could then tightened the over the top straps.

That’s kind of my go to for loads like this.

The second layer is about 30” off the deck, too high for a bulkhead, and I cant really X chain or X strap the front of it. No headache rack on the trailer although there is one on the truck.

How would you have done it?

RE: What would you have done differently??
for bellies on 42 i would have 1 centered for every 10' span so 4 bellies. i use all 4 inch straps all i have. then for top straps i usualy 1 strap front 1 strap back and 1 strap for every 10' inbetween so 6 like you did as i tend to do either 3 or 4 on 20' pipe front/center/rear

RE: What would you have done differently??
You don’t use any choke straps or gut straps or anything?

The top layer was loose as I was walking around up there kicking out tarps so I added the 2” before tarping

3” and 4” straps have the same WLL I believe, or at least they did the last time I looked

RE: What would you have done differently??
Im so glad too see this thread still going strong i love seeing the back an forth an different opinions. I've been off working on a couple side projects you guys will hear about in the next little bit.

Too LRT something(sorry bout the name i cant remember it) rietenour doesnt weld their pockets they are slotted in place an i posted the document stating its a tested and rated securement point, the only spots weld on a rietenour is the spools, everything else is bolted.

To DD the regs state for any piece over 10ft in length there must be 2 straps in the first 10ft an then one for evey 10ft after it.

RE: What would you have done differently??
So last week i need to be home on the weekend an i pretty much ate it. $900 2000ish miles, it was my old nemesis styrofoam. I unfortunately learn something new every time i haul this stuff an i post this for someone too learn from.

So for anyone thats hauled this stuff you know you cant tighten it down, so its basicly just sitting on the deck. So from past experiences ive got the back X strapped an the rest strapped like you should with the cardboard edge protectors. So heres how it looked when i left

   
   

The tall stack i was told the made out of 2 smaller stacks an didnt think ya more on that to come.

So a couple hours down the road i stop too check the load an that top section of the tall stack is trying to walk away, so i threw i strap over it front to back too try an stop it from going backwords

   
   

Figuring i was good too go i took off for a couple more hours an ill be damn that stack ate its wheaty's cause wasnt he trying too walk away again FFS.

RE: What would you have done differently??
Continued.....

Thats when i realized it was a bunch of smaller stacks stacked together so i finished splitting them an flattened out the load, an finally through a smoke tarp over everything like i shpuld have done in the beginning but the shipper didnt seem too care so neither did i.

   

Im happy to say after doing that the load arrived too its destination save an sound.

So for anybody reading this 2 huge tips for hauling styrofoam.

1. Always always cross strap the back its a bitch too get it too stay but well worth it an needed.

2. Throw a smoke tarp whether the customer asks for one or not, it stops wind from blowing through the stacks an upsetting an shifting everything an making your life a 1000% times easier
