When approaching this video, it’s important to remember that there are a lot of folks out there who can’t even manage to navigate their compact cars around on the roadways without pulling off an incredibly bad maneuver that ends up putting them into a guardrail or taking out someone’s garden while trying to make a tight turn in a neighborhood. Now, imagine the stress that Mr. Honda Civic driver would have if he stretched out his car to an astonishing 200+-feet in length and had some incredibly high dollar hardware to tow behind.
That’s exactly the task that this crew is tackling as they transport a rather large windmill blade with extreme patience and furthermore, lots of experience and skill. When it comes to getting this thing around, traveling on an open highway is probably difficult enough, let alone figuring out how to take this incredibly long load and get it around a 90-degree turn! It’s something that has to take lots of patience and experience but this crew definitely does their diligence to make it all work as the truck leads and the incredible piece of cargo follows in a smooth transition.
It’s a touchy situation as the large cargo makes its way through the tight spot, being navigated by independently steering axles that work as hard as they can to get the job done. Check out the video below that shows how such a large piece is driven from point A to point B without a hitch. The next time that you see a windmill, we guarantee that you won’t look at it the same way! There’s a lot to appreciate when you see how some of these large parts go through such a high-stress delivery process. Some people need to break out their pen and take some notes!
