What those pictures are missing is a heap Systainers spread all over the place!!!
Then, It would look like work is getting done.
Maybe the odd Sysport would help too

I recently heard from James Metcalf. He has been working for Barnhart Crane for many years.
They "have 465 axels of special platform trailer".



This rig represents about 4% of their capacity.

They move all kinds of heavy stuff, including tunnel boring machines.

"In May we move a tunnel boring machine from port to job site.
67 feet diam. hole. Five million dollar job, just for move.
The one at Miami was 38 feet and I thought that was big."

It's hard to imagine moving a 67 ft. diam machine down the highway, or anywhere for that matter.

The 5 million dollar price tag is not so impressive though, it cost almost that much to move my Bridgeport mill from Bridgeport, Connecticut to Los Angeles.

James sent a correction. The tunnel borer they transported is on 57 feet in diameter.



Sections being loaded onto a ship in dry dock for stability. I'll try to add a pic of the crane later.


Don't understand why the pic is so small. The one I saved is 1024 pixels tall.

ONLY 57 feet in diameter... Imagine the Systainer THAT came in... Probably a T-loc to make it easier to open
