Now this is Road Transport!! 4 Prime movers pulling, two pushing a load of over 700 tons.
Traveled from one mine in Western Australia to another 230 km away at an average speed 6 km/hr on bitumen and 4 km/hr on gravel. It took 6 days driving 15 hours a day, this also included becoming bogged with four front end loaders having trouble pulling it out.
That’s an impressive move and well done to the Transport Company and Drivers that did it.
Thanks to WARTA for the pictures
