    Just how california refers to their different weight charts...there is another one that is not used very often that is a little lower than green weight...Orange

    It looks good. Yard looks a little tight for a 9 axle though.

    Yeah it was a pretty big project and we were able to keep the payload at 75 tons which is what we were aiming for and we will be able to add an extension so it looks like it will pay off.:)We are getting ready to start building an extension pretty soon so we will see how well it works.

    Your guys did a great job, I wonder how many lbs of rod was burnt? The welding was a work of art.

    Thanks again
