TENNESSEE | This 237,000 lb transformer delivery in rural Tennessee came with a couple of logistical challenges—a tight rail siding, and an old bridge along the 26-mile route. DOT permitting required that Buckingham Transport use a dual lane trailer to distribute the trailer’s weight for the bridge, but the TK300 trailer was too long and to wide to navigate the rail siding where the transporter was arriving. Buckingham resolved the issue by transloading the transformer via jack and slide to a Goldhofer SPMT and carrying it a mile to where the dual lane trailer was waiting. There they transferred the transformer to the trailer for the rest of the route. At the substation, torrential rains the previous night had turned the jobsite to mud. Buckingham plated the site with a load of steel plate and safely drove the TK300 alongside the permanent pad, where they used the Buckingham jack and slide system to offload the transformer, rotate it 90 degrees, and set it down into is final position.
