I reckon that driving this Goliath would be a challenge, especially in the UK. Any idea what the max weight of this rig might be?

Its a good shot sugarbag1.

G'day Jim.I am not sure exactly of the max weight, but I think around 100 Metric Ton.I know that the Roadtrains that carry Bluegum Logs, there load is up to 80 ton plus the weight of Primer Mover and the trailers, so could be a bit over 100 ton. I have never driven one, but I have been for a ride in one, you sit up very high. Also notice that most cars get out of the way of them. The trucks are usally really good on these roads around where I live.Its hard to overtake take them on the road as they travel at 100klms per hour , empty or loaded.I have more, of these here.Thanks for dropping by. Kind Regards, David
