Not in Pennsylvania. One of our drivers got caught on a 10 ton road............ The fine was 40,000 dollarsAn 18 wheeler can legally gross 80,000 pounds on a 9 ton road. A 9 ton road means 9 tons per axle. I'm not sure how the front tractor axle is figured, since it's not a dual. Anyway, 80,000# is the legal limit here in Minnesota. Count the axles, multiply by the ton limit of your road.
clemsonfor said:90 foot does not seem that long to have to use 6 lanes?
I am a forester and i have had quite a few 80-85 foot poles hauled off my tracts in the last few years, most on a standard 40 foot log trailer, thats as much on the trailer as off. Usually hauling between 6-12 pieces a trailer, logs slapping the pavement. The usually run at night to avoid DOT. The ticket is usually for not seeing the tail lights!!
I have had a fe 90 footer and 95footers, they haul them and turn them just fine on 2 lane roads. Now there not going through town or anything though.
