I think safety concepts where taken out of play and thrown out of the window on this one.
I talked to the people who did this move. These guys specialize in moving very large equipment. They had about 25 miles of road closed. The left-side driver watched the right-side driver and just did whatever he was told. It was mostly left-hand turns and they shredded an entire set of tires on the right side of the truck and trailer.
So did they define that as a success...
If they closed the road, why didn't they just drive it there?
That is a 240-ton Wiseda donated by the former LTV Steel Mining Company near Hoyt Lakes, MN to a museum (Mineview in the Sky) near Virginia, MN. The truck was junk, didn't run, didn't have major parts. The mine donated the truck, the transport company donated the haulage, and a supplier did the work on loading/unloading. The transport company did a lot of "double-hauling" in that area, D11's, large blast-hole drills, trucks, etc.
