40,000 Pound Rough Terrain Crane Shipping on Standard RGN Trailer

Hal Foster was contacted by this client for rough terrain crane shipping from Ravenna, Texas to Richland Hills, Texas. The 2000 Link-Belt RTC 8040 weighed 40,000 pounds and had a length of 42 ft. part of which consisted of the folded up boom arm. Hal selected a regular RGN double drop deck trailer that had the capacity to undertake the oversize weight and length dimensions.

The regular RGN was selected over a stretch or extended RGN since Heavy Haulers are allowed to let the conveyor extension hang over the rear of the trailer.

The 2000 Link-Belt RTC 8040 rough terrain crane was simply loaded by detaching the front of the RGN and then it was driven onto the lowered platform. Expert oversize machinery handlers that Hal personally selected undertook the intricate loading and weight balancing that this project required.
