Transporting a CMI RS500B Soil Stabilizer
Transporting a CMI RS500B Soil Stabilizer Safely
William Thomas / January 2021
We were hired to transport a CMI RS500B soil stabilizer from Wellington, NV to Oroville, CA. Jason, our most experienced oversize load transport specialist, was the one to process the shipment. He started by applying for shipping permits which take some time to acquire. While he waited, he processed the rest of the paperwork and fully insured the CMI RS500B soil stabilizer. After evaluating the dimensions and weight of the two tractors, Jason decided that lowboy trailers were the best to transport them. Lowboy trailers are very convenient when shipping oversized and extremely heavyweight loads. They are very stable because of their lowest off-the-ground option. Our heavy equipment transport specialists are familiar with the specifications of different types of trailers and what they are best for.
Loading The Soil Stabilizer
Eventually, Jason received the shipping permits and was ready to dispatch the shipment. He contacted our drivers in Werrington, NV and told them where they would pick up the two tractors. Heavy Equipment Transport uses professional and highly experienced drivers. Our drivers are highly trained on how to handle heavy machinery when loading and unloading them. When our drivers got there, they were keen and very careful when loading each of the tractors. When the soil stabilizer was loaded on a lowboy trailer, it driver secured it with chains. Before calling Jason for dispatch, they put red flags on each tractor to warn other motorists to keep their distance.
Delivering the Soil Stabilizer On Time
After they called Jason, he dispatched the soil stabilizer transport and advised them to use route US-395 N. It was safe and the fastest. Along the road, the two drivers constantly stopped to tighten the chains holding down the two tractors. After about 7 hours, they were at the drop-off location unloading the two tractors. Heavy Equipment Transport, we offer affordable, fast and reliable heavy machinery and equipment transportation services.
