    Have a piece that is 11.2'wide. I seem to recall 12ft being the limit before the "crazy" kicked in, but someone eluded to otherwise.

    Could anyone help. To clarify, I am looking at states OK, KS AR for right now. Machine would not commonly need to be moved too far, or at least I don't care to move it that far.

    This is an excavator so no way to shrink it.

    No issue whatsoever around here. I run 11’ 11” all the time. Over 12’ in OK gets an escort. Really anything under 16’ wide around the four state area isn’t too big a deal. Height and weight become an issue long before width does.
