Always Strap Your Load

Postby Barnyard » Wed Sep 01, 2021 9:47 am

A secure load is a safe load.

There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I first saw that picture a year or two ago, so not sure how old it is, but loose material is now required to be tarped. At least in Mo. and I think that may be federal. If rabbit Holler Flash is still around he can tell us. He once told me you should never tie down someone else's load, or let someone else tie yours down.

He is absolutely right. I almost lost a tractor going to Florida because I trusted some one else.

Better safe than sorry!

:lol:

Judging by the looks of that semi, I have doubts that is in North America.

We have more than our fair share of bureaucratic bs here State side, I would not be surprised if it is worse somewhere else!

Do I see a fuel tank mounted under that trailer a ways behind the front?
