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

I’ve had it happen twice to me. Specifically told no tarps needed. Right from dispatcher to the shipper to the broker to the receiver. No tarps needed

But then both times I’ve had the plastic wrapping blow apart on one bundle and damage the product

The problem is it really doesn’t pay enough to tarp it, but having it all tarped keeps it from walking around on you, too

Styrofoam sucks to haul but the way they loaded you was ridiculous and didn’t help things

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.

Slotted, Bolted, Welded... Don't matter I never pulled one, I just heard they did something to them and rated them.


And the regs say 2 in the first 5 feet not ten feet.

RE: What would you have done differently??
Its 2 for any item over 5FT long or over i 1100 lbs that is not blocked. but when you get into something of considerable length hes correct in stating for the length of a 42' item its 2 in the first 10 ft then 1 every 10 thereafter.

so examples

1 Pallet 3 Ft Long under 1100lbs - 1 strap blocked or not

1 Pallet 3 ft long over 1100lbs - 2 straps is not blocked 1 strap if blocked

1 Pallet 9 Ft long under 1100lbs - 2 straps unblocked 1 strap blocked

10 ft is the magical number that changes things any pallet 10FT or longer requires 2 in first 10 1 every 10 there after.

1 Pallet 50ft long weight isnt considered - 6 straps 2 in the first 10ft 1 every 10ft there after. or as many straps as it takes to cover the weight of the load for forward/up/backward movement percentages.

if a pallet is say over 10ft by just 6 inches...a DOT offerent can ticket you for not having a 3rd strap as the first 2 straps only cover the 10ft you need a 3rd for those wonderful 6inches or more after the 10ft.

Most of the shippers on the east coast make you fully tarp or smoke tarp styrofoam. One shipper close to me uses mesh tarps for plastic protection and to keep the load together. I have a set of 6' drop mesh tarps. I used to carry them because they also satisfy a lot of other shippers needs of tarping load because all the shipper wants is the packaging to stay intact. Mesh tarps are cheap and REALLY light. They maybe something for a guy that pulls such loads a lot, to look into.

RE: What would you have done differently??
I don't have any real close up pics of the securement on these loads.
The new bucket is 14'4"W x 13'10"H x 18'L and weighs 109,000lbs (height is OTG, on the ground. Actual loaded height was 15'10".

The used bucket is 15'W x 14'H x 19'L and weighs 122,000lbs.

Both buckets were hauled on my rail/beam, so the actual under the load trailer width is 44"! This is a California legal 9 axle trailer, so it's lively! What does that mean? It rock and rolls constantly, so much so that heading north out of Vegas with the used one, the Lamborghini passing me slowed down to take pics/video of the load.
Each load had sixteen 1/2" chains with direct contact securement.

It’s 1 strap FOR every 10 feet thereafter

You don’t need one at every literal 10 foot mark

A 42’ long pipe i could have six straps all within the first three feet and be legal

I get what your saying here. I see the exaggeration. But no it's not legal nor is it safe. Please don't post such sarcastic crap that someone could take literally. These posts live on after you move on. I want people to learn from this.

What would I have done differently if I was hauling it? Hmmm... Not kidding, I probably would've hired this Hamerhead fellow to crawl out from wherever he's put himself and instruct me on how the hell you move such pieces. Including him riding in truck with me the whole trip.

I'd say your on the front lines of semi-uncharted territory with a lot of your loads. I love seeing what all you get into. It'd be cool to see you start up a thread that you just showed what all you move. How it was done and problems you faced. You do a very fascinating job.
