Extreme trucking on Vancouver Island
This is the most extreme, heavy, off-road trucking in the world.... Trucks
that are 16 feet wide, can carry loads of huge old growth timber that weigh
130 tons, gross weight of truck and load can be as much as 180 tons. This
is done on roads that are very steep "as much as 20% down grades", barely
as wide as the truck with as many as twelve switchbacks that cling to the
sides of the mountain for thousands of feet, with drop offs of hundreds and
sometimes thousands of feet at nearly every turn. Narrow bridges, soft
spots, muddy slippery conditions, extreme fog, and in most cases two trucks
cannot pass each other.. they must use call points on the radio to inform
all the other divers of locations... Fog, rain, ice, etc all add to the
conditions that make this the most demanding, and unforgiving trucking job
in the world. The men that drive these trucks tend to have decades of
experience and know the vehicles inside and out... mistakes are deadly in
this business. I had always wanted to see these trucks in action... and boy
did I ever get my chance.
These guys make ice road truckers look like Sunday drive in the country.
This video will give you just a little idea of what its like to drive two
hours into the high timber, meeting other giant trucks all the way, to
bring 120 tons of logs off a mountain and haul it to a dryland sort at an
inlet on the Pacific Ocean. Awsome is the only way to describe the feeling
to be in this huge truck in these conditions. Thanks to Steve and the
mighty "H-17" 1975 Hayes HDX off road log truck.
Truck crashes after tire blowout, kills driver
Virginia State Police are investigating a
fatal crash involving a line-painting truck on Interstate 81 in Augusta

when the crash occurred at 7:05 a.m. Friday in the northbound lanes near
Spottswood. The truck was headed to a work site in Nelson County.
Geller says the truck's right front tire blew out and the
driver lost control. The truck then hit a guardrail and overturned. The
adult male driver died at the scene. He was wearing a seat belt. The
driver's name wasn't immediately released.
A male passenger was taken to Augusta Health Center for treatment of
non-life threatening injuries.
According to Virginia State Police, the truck driver was wearing a
seat belt at the time of the crash. Another person took the seat belt
off when they tried to administer aid to the truck driver.
The name of the truck driver is Edwin M. Tam of
Troutville, Va. He was 59-years-old. Tam worked for Sandras Marking

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.
