Oversized

My first big load in the 350...luckily they were empty. 550 gal stainless steel tanks. When I haul them loaded w/ oil I'll only be hauling one at a time. Kind of makes my new truck look small!

When you haul one loaded,

A) How much will it weigh?
B) Where in the bed will you have to put it ?
C) If it is over the axles, how will a forklift with standard 42" forks pick it up?

Those guys are morons, but I can't stop watching that show. I would've buried Todd Hoffman in the bush a couple years ago.

They are usually around 6K loaded. Typically I load near the cab...but sometimes my customers don't have long forks to get the load out...so occasionally I'm forced to load on the rear axle.

I read the thread title and thought it was finally nice to hear other guys have to deal with the same problem that I do.

Do the tanks have a "pallet" under them? Something a pallet grabber and chain can pull the tank out and then lift the forks? Can the truck bed allow the tanks to be slid across it?

Just a thought.

Do you remove the tailgate?

Do you deliver these on a regular basis?

I only haul when my customers have emergencies that our normal logistics cannot accommodate...which is not often enough to warrant me driving something "delivery friendly" like our drivers do.

Yes, the totes have a built-in pallet, and we have used straps/chains to pull them forward in the past. But I don't typically carry a bunch of rigging (since I don't deliver often)...so we normally load according to the customer I am delivering to (we know who has the right gear or long forks). I have a 4x8 piece of plywood in the bed until I get over to Linex...but these things will not slide very well without doing damage (hence the plywood).

My truck is normally used to visit clients and entertain them...not to deliver...but it is fun to load it up once in a while and hit the road for a change of pace!

Even with the Line-X, you might still want the plywood in there when hauling the tanks. It may allow the tank to slide on the plywood versus sticking to the Line-X.

Yeah the Linex is not for sliding, just for bed protection. The plywood is my temporary protection. We stopped sliding on our other trucks because it tears the bed up too much, rips Linex off. I'm getting the really hard Linex this time, but we still won't be sliding.
