HEAVY HAUL DRAWS SPECTATORS

Barnhart’s heavy haul of a transformer to a power plant caught the attention of WGAL News 8 in Pennsylvania.  Weighing in at more than a million pounds, Barnhart’s custom-made 24-dolly transporter had plenty of spectators along its route.

The vehicle is specifically made to carry super loads, has 192 wheels and takes four operators to steer it. The drivers have to move in unison considering turn radius, load height, and the contour of the road, moving at a top speed of 15 mph.  Six months of planning went into the trip.

Onlookers will get more chances to see the dolly transporter in operation, as this is the first of four loads.
