Yes Nicky gone are the days of the Gardner engine trucks down to 20mph on the slightest incline; modern trucks just take it in their stride with no real effort, quite amazing really.

Another grim January morning a couple of weeks ago.
70 miles of easy going,then 10 miles of single track,tight country lanes.

Not happy with this setup at all.
I made him put the rest of his chaines on,before it left the yard.
It's the hirers lowloader,but when I'm finished I will pay myself to hire in my usual lowloader company

A tad under secured there Nicky; why some folks would be prepared to have the chance of a lump like that falling off truly baffles me. :doh:

It would not have hurt to put another chain around the undercarriage by the dozers other top roller; it only takes one chain to slacken or fail :think:

I've seen worse then that, the Froggies always try to chain or strap their loads with just the one chain or strap it seems... :roll:
I always try to put 4 chains on in a cross like, and some rubber underneath the tracks, doesn't move an inch that way ;)

Cheers, Patrick
