    Leaving town this morning I saw this pulled over by a Highway Patrol. I sure would like to have been a fly in that Patrol car.

    If it were me hauling that contraption, I'd have done it in the dark. You're in trouble either way...might as well be under the cover of darkness to drop the chance of getting seen by Johnny Law.:p

    I second that, although Boston, Mass has a D.O.T cop on at night. But for rest of the state, your on your own.

    i think its an case of dumbcop. i've seen custom harvesters with rigs like that before. most have tri-axle trucks with combine trailers with head cart pups or 4 axel dumps with combine trailers and small garin pups.

    Jeez guys, maybe he was speeding, maybe he pulled over for some reason and the officer stopped to see if he needed assistance, maybe the driver is the officers spouse and they pulled over for a little romance. I could go on and on but its all speculation at this point. I sure hope none of you ever see me pulled over by the police. LOL!!:laugh

    I would think as long as his state allows long combination vehicles that would seem to be an almost legal load. Now I don't think I have ever heard of Long combination vehicles being allowed to run over width and height. But their are some weird arse laws on the books that allow all kind of crazy shenanigans for farm related transport.

    I think my favorite part of that first video is the brigadier gain hauler with the 8V Detroit in it leaving from the stop sign pulling the combine on the pintle trailer. Winding that strait piped Detroit out grabbing every gear in her ALMOST makes me miss the old days.

    "Implements of Husbandry" i.e. farm equipment are allowed to go overwidth. Some states want you buy a cheapy overwidth permit to haul a combine on the interstate. Just depends on what state.

    Well, I see nothing wrong with that set up, except the length. I wouldn't try that, but there is a haulage contractor who works for our JCB dealers here, and they use interlink combinations to transport three 3CX's, one on the interlink, the other two on the actual lowbed trailer. they also transport Massey Ferguson tractors, maybe four or five little ones at a go. Just that that is a very long interlink!

    And on those YouTubes, I like that "toys" of the harvestor. Very cute. And after paying close attention, You see that those are not full lowbed trailers they're using. They look very small for those combines, though, and then they put a grain pup behind it.

    the lowbed trailers still apear to be atleast 28-30 feet. They are only single axles though.

    and in one video their pulling the combine on the one trailer and the header trailer behind that. That would put them over 90 ft bumper to bumper i would think

    Combine Weight

    I don't know about a Case but a New Holland Combine weighs about 37,000 lbs. But with Duals it's close to 17 feet wide.:eek:

    In 2:30 second bursts it is music that brings back a lot of memories. Most of them involve that infernal sound reverberating in my ears though many a nights sleep. Not to mention the defining roar in the cab during the waking hours spent in the cab

    If you want to see more pics of setups like that. Go to Johnson Harvesting . com They have pictures of the past few years. Should be able to find the Trucks section or moving sections in the various years. It's done all the time by them.
