A 250,000 pound (113,398 Kg) gross weight Super-Load at 140 feet (42.7 M) long sitting on 13 axles has difficulty navigating a tight corner into an electrical power substation and gets bogged down.....stuck, with the rear steerable axles off in the mud and the Mack truck (prime mover) spun down in soft gravel. Can Ron and Tator get it straightened out and moved, OR has Tator met its match??? A very special "ARC" nemesis episode!!! Please SLOW DOWN & MOVE OVER!!! Thanks for watching and God bless!!!

I think this truck needs more wheels !! super load goes across bridge, you start across and bridge collapses!!! now if those front set of wheels would steer like the back ones on that dolly(jeep) it might be capable of some eradic steering !! ?? what was the purpose of lifting the tail and lowering it after moving it over??

Is lugging chains around the most annoying part of the job? Edit: Just getting to the part where you talk about the 5/8" grade 100 chains. I'm feeling more and more sure about the answer to my question now lol.

Years back I built those transformers at Waukesha Electric Systems here in Waukesha, Wisconsin. That looks like a smaller one too. Massive weight indeed. Craning them around the factory was always fun. 3rd shift sucked tho.

Why not just use a hydraulic jack on a thick steel plate at the pivot point between the two sets of wheels to make the pulling a lot easier and less dangerous?.

That towing lorry has more gear than the dealership. Brilliant kit and well stowed and looked after. 250 tons? Short I suppose.oops just seen end credits. 250,000 lbs why don’t you use tons there’s less No’s. = 111 1/2 tons.

I can see why this has 1/2M views in a week, can't learn this in a classroom. A key decision for me was not to leave until they tried to move the trailer. Great video.

Work in substations now retired. The substations were designed around how equipment was to brought in, especially a problem when substations are energised. Generally all our transporters would be on concrete roadways. I would increased the width of the concrete road beforehand. Today there is computer simulators which will allow you to design the roadway.

It's always about the safe small movements. Can you imagine what could have happened if you pulled it farther each time and how much side movement there would have been when the other guy lifted the tower...

Great job as always. I think the substation should think about tripling the width of that gate or quit bringing in such long loads.

I have not a single idea what you guys do and knows it takes a whole lot of know how to move something this big but lifting up on it wouldn't have helped get it to slide. Like I said, I don't have a clue. Just like learning new things.

Steerable axles would make it so much easier, sometimes. Only issue would be the cowboys who decided to counter steer and take up 2 lanes at a time...

this made me worried watching this, I have just completed an impressed voltage course. You are seriously in risk working near those substations Ron ! Totally shocked they were even allowed in there with that truck, trailer and load without the power being shut off. The way impressed voltage works and charges metal objects near stations is super scary and still not fully understood yet. After having seen some of the pictures and videos of people that have come into impressed voltage, I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. Please take care when near them, especially working the job you do. It’s a killer that lurks in the shadows, one you can’t hear or see.

Brain IsFullofNonsense
The safest place to stand would be on the OTHER side of the trailer. Cables that break under high loads can cut a man in two. And the view isn't that much better from this side. Not referring to you, but that helper that you told to ”mind the cable”.

This is kind of cool, as a journeyman coil winder 40+ years ago I have wound the legs that go inside of these transformers, moved the sheet steel they are made from and the completed transformers with a 100 ton overhead crane. Brings back memories. Learned a lot doing that job. Thanks for a trip down memory lane.

That is some size of a rig for that weight over hear in Ireland we would be able to move that on 9 axles 4 in tractor and 5 on rear of the trailer is the axle I am guessing ye are restricted on axle weights for what reason is it I always wondered great video thanks
Ron Pratt
Ron Pratt 7 days ago
Yes, we are restricted to individual axle weights as well as certain lengths due to our bridge systems, safe braking distances, and several other factors. Thanks for watching and God bless.

Ron -- Captain Grammar", here. It's is a contraction for It Is. Its pertains to ownership. So the correct usage would be "Has Tator Met Its Match". (No Apostrophe). Thoroughly enjoy your videos. Glad you got that kid away from the chains/cable. If, by some insane chance that cable or chain snapped he would have likely lost a limb...
