I passed a D6R this Morning on a Low Loader travelling with the blade right up - No support under the blade - Is this normal :?:

Well I cant speak for anyone else but we always run with the blade supported, usually as high as possible to the front so the cars can slide underneath it! This was yesterday...................there are sleepers under the blade I promise you.... :D

Nice Mervyn :thumbup: which one is yours or are you driving the pair now? :lol:

ps. that's a proper Irish load there but you could have put the bowser on the neck before you put the blades on! :roll:
