In a recent move, Carter Heavy Equipment Transport hauled an electrical transformer clocking in at 150,000 pounds from Houston, TX to Saraland, AL.
This haul required two escorts at the front and at the rear, utilizing a high pole on the front escort. The transformer was also incredibly tall at 16 feet and 125-feet long.
“This particular move was challenging because of the height and weight of the load,” said Carter. “However because of my new trailer, I’m able to haul more weight in comparison to others.”
Carter was referring to an Aspen E-Series trailer which is under the 80,000-pound limit, allowing the company to haul almost the weight of a 13-axle trailer while still only on 12 axles. This results in a more inexpensive move to and from jobsites.
“We chose the Aspen E-Series trailer/ transporter for a number of reasons,” said Carter. “First, we really connected with Mark, Benji and all the guys at J and B Pavelka, the Aspen Trailer dealer. They’ve been excellent to deal with and the level of support that they have provided during and after the sale has been great. We really appreciate their attention to detail and their support of our organization and our needs has been superb.”
