I gather you head towards Bowen from Collinsville down the big hill ?

I'm probably wrong but last time I was up that way the other way out of Collinsville wasn't much chop

Is there any way those of us who are not on facebook ( by choice), can view these photos? Every time I click onto the link, they get blocked out by a caption that asks to either join up or log in. Dave_64

Just for the record we are currently in Queensland moving a Transformer with 2 x 10 axle platforms supporting the load between the trailers in beams. The journey is from Collinsville to Dalby with detours due to our axle weights just under 1200 km and the rear 10 axle platform has to be steered for the entire journey.
At least the rear steer driver has a cabin to sit in withe full hydrostatic steering not qiyte as comfortable as the drivers in the Volvo's and Merc's but a lot better than what some guys did in the past including myself on far too many occasions.

I gather the transformer is for the transmission line to send wind power from Coopers Gap to SA........at the moment there is a row between the SA lekky crowds Musk battery and Queensland ,cause the Qld lot reckon SA takes everything and gives nothing back

If anyone want's another look at some large loads being moved with rear steer "dollies" check out A.L.E haulage.
They are based in England. Very impressive .
