I moved a D9 in 1978 about 2am. Blade, ripper, and all. Had to raise the blade to go over the top of some cars parked along the road. Only moved it about 4 miles but was still a big job. When it touched the rear of the trailer it picked up the rear end of the truck.

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

Kenny I'm not sure what's wrong with me but I love moving big machines. It's stressful, but once you get to your destination it is so rewarding.

I was young then and they would have locked us up if they caught us but I loved doing it. Where we onloaded it they had a guard with a machine gun overlooking the operation so I'm sure other things were going on also.

When the load is that massive, the tie down chains just look so.......inadequate.

A Blue Bird school bus, 20th year. I get to take it home, so it saves me a lot of gas. This evening I'll be on a John Deere 5101 feeding hay and moving some troughs.
Have a great day!

Brother and sis-in-law both drive school buses and have for a couple decades. Both tell me the things they've seen those jr high and high school kids do on the bus would make a sailor blush..

Excavator looks like it'd take more than 5 axles to support.
