Biggest piece i ever had on the deck was on the Rogers lowboy and it was a continuous miner and it weighed in a 196000 , and no there were no permits and yes i was a weeeeeee bit over . They could not get a trailer that could have hauled it legal in to where it had to be loaded . And i hauled it about 65 miles from over in Pa over here and down in to the old coal country . Had the pony power to pull it but that last hill that back in my coal hauling days i pulled many a big loads of coal up over BUT never took a load down it . My choice or third gear with the jake on was not the best as i could not hold her back and had to turn her loose with all six axles smoking half way down i cut her loose and came into that small town at at about 80 mph. and once on the flats i got it slowed down and was able to make the turn and head out the county road and cross the fifteen ton bridge with a 196000 on the deck and 48000 of truck and trailer under it . That is NOT the first big load to cross that bridge .I first crossed it back in 1970 with over a 110000 on right behind five others with a lot more then i had as i was still learning bad habits.
