If my memory is correct, the 1.8 million pound move was done in 95 or 96. Intermountain bought out the heavy transport division in , I think, 97.

I saw that setup parked on the side of the road in Nevada during the move..evidently they were waiting on traffic to clear up before their next leg. There was also a write up on the move in TRUCKERS NEWS the month following the move

I have been looking for pics of this unit for a long time. So now that they are right in front of me, I still can't see them. The only computer I have access to internet blocks any photos from photobucket. If OK with all parties involved, could someone repost them using a different host(Fickr or imageshack)?

Thanks
Brad

Christian,
not sure if this answers all your questions but this was posted by GregP before:

This trailer, in real life, is AWSOME!

As pictured, this is a 500 Ton capacity trailer. It was built by Trailking, for Savage. I believe it was built in 1994/1995. The "load" and configuration pictured, is what I believe was the maiden voyage for this monster. Photos of the move were used for the Trailking ad in the American Crane and Transport mag for a period of time.

Intermountain Rigging and Heavy Haul (IRH) aquired the heavy tranport division of Savage in 1997. This configuration has been rarely used. It is very common to see IRH using the 300 Ton beams, with 4, 4 axle dual lane dollies. Much smaller, but still impressive.

During my last visit to the IRH yard in Salt Lake City, many of these components still sit, stacked up, at the back of the yard. They even still wear the Savage colors. The main components have been repainted to the IRH colors. Some of you may recognize the beams on the trailer from the large transformer that Mammoet moved in PA a little while back. If you remember the photos, these beams still wear the Savage colors as well.


DumpsterToy...... Are you sure the weight is not 500 ton? I recall the gross weight, including all trucks, was in the range of 1.8 million pounds.
