Often times OTR heavy haul loads aren’t only traveling by land during their journey. A perfect example is this HP Fuel Gas Mixing Drum transported by Hansa Meyer that we provided bucket escorts for during September.

This piece weighed in at an impressive 1,036,000 pounds and stood 24’2” tall and 30’ wide. We sent over 5 bucket trucks with crews to help clear the way over 13 days and 310 miles of travel from McGregor to Bloomington, TX.

The piece was successfully delivered in Bloomington and will be barged the rest of the way to Cameron, LA, its final destination.

Thanks Hansa Meyer for trusting VersaBucket to safely escort your oversized transport!
