Large load on the Hume Highway on 8th of July?

By akamad - 9 July 2012 30

multiple prime movers

Hey all,

I was on my way from Sydney around 2ish last Sunday (8th of July), and ran into horrendous traffic. As it turns out, there was a massive truck moving what mast have been some really heavy equipment (there were three prime movers connected up to move the thing!).

Anyone know what it was? Unfortunately I couldn’t get a pic.

UPDATE 09/07/12 13:34: Stormboy has sent in a picture of the astonishing scene, anyone able to explain?

What’s Your opinion?

I bet no body expected them to do a head check every time they went past a turnoff on the left.

That my friends, is part of one seriously massive, totally huge, big f***off crane. Lampson’s do crawler cranes up to 1000T or so from memory. No idea what model that thing is part of, I can’t see the photo very well on this screen, but it’s probably part of the carbody of a big girl. I’ve got even less idea where it might be going. If it was on the Hume, Melbourne maybe?

Nah, it was a Reptoid landing craft. The singularity used to power the hyperspace engines is the cause of the high mass.

was it around Marulan? I heard their building a quarry on the southside of MArulan. Opposite where the road to Bungonia comes out

Some friends went past that and put a photo on spacebook of three prime movers pushing and thee pulling. They thought it might be a big generator such as is used in the snowy scheme?
