Lets have a little fun with this.
Does any one have a guess as to what this thing weighs. On my way out to the showgrounds I went across the scale at the elevator on the south edge of Hawely.
Only the weight of the engine for one guess.
Then the weight of the entire unit truck and engine.
Ok, here is what it weighed with not full of fuel and a little short on coolant.
Total tow vehicle and engine, 39400 lbs
Tow vehicle 18300 lbs
Engine 21100 lbs
I'm sure Karl cheated !! He might have asked the scale house after I left.
Mark being a truck driver and hauling buns and sliced bread, I knew would be real close
Now for SD jon and Ned, I would have to think you both work at the same chicken farm
The trucks weight was easy, from when I used to haul LTL freight in a straight axle.
The engine... figured it couldn't be too much more than the truck, otherwise, Clayton would've hauled by semi. So, just rounded the number up to #20,000.
Clayton, if the engine would've been on a semi trailer... I'd never have come close. Lol
See you on The Hill.!!
