Taking The 285 Ton Anode The Last Mile
Here we see the 285 ton anode running it's last mile of a trip that started
in Salt Lake City, UT. In the first scene we see the Precision Heavy Haul
team making the turn from Arizona Highway 188 onto the US 60 in Claypool,
AZ. I thought this turn was going to be a troublesome one for them, but
you could tell this wasn't their first rodeo! Arizona DPS officers blocked
off the intersection and within 5 minutes the anode was through and traffic
was flowing again. Scene two shows the load entering the Freeport McMoRan
mine complex in Miami, AZ. An interesting thing to note, is as the load is
climbing the very steep grade at the mine, the driver of the lead truck
lifts the rear most and unpowered axle on his rig for more traction on his
drive axles. The entire set up was reported to be 225 feet long, with the
anode itself weighing 285 tons. This was shot on 8-16-11.
