Arrow Seven Loads of Logs behind one truck

I saw this on FB and thought this might be a great project for someone. It would take several pole trailers and a KH to replicate, but it would be well worth the effort for the builder who is so inclined.

This Logging Truck is pulling SEVEN loads of logs out of the Thompson River drainage in Western Montana.

In the early '70s Claridge Trucking had the task of hauling Anaconda's logs from up to 100 miles away to the rail head at Thompson Falls. They were able to successfully haul multiple loads down the private Anaconda Logging road to the landing.

This video was provided by Michelle Veach Ferrel, grand daughter of Floyd Veach who was the driver of this truck. Hauling seven loads earned him recognition in the Guiness Book of World Records.

During this time it was not unusual to see multiple loads on this road. 3, 4, or 5 loads were common. Floyd Veach pioneered hauling SEVEN loads. He did this more than once.

Hauling logs - 7 loads

Hope you liked it...
