ICON used its XL Specialized Double Drop trailer to haul a Rolls Royce test engine from Nashville to Tullahome, TN

ICON, a trucking firm based in Hermitage, TN recently hauled a Rolls Royce test engine flown into Nashville International Airport on a Ukrainian Antonov heavy lift aircraft.

“We transported the engine from Nashville to Arnolds Air Force base in Tullahoma, TN, where it is undergoing design testing,” says Tim Ringer, president of ICON.

Hauling the engine the relatively short route was complicated due to the size of the load. The engine was 28 feet long, 15 feet wide and 14 feet 10 inches tall. It weighed 71,000 pounds. To make the haul, Ringer said the company went with its 2000 Peterbilt 379 and a XL Specialized Double Drop trailer.
