Perkins handled the highway transport of a turbine from a Mississippi River terminal in Minnesota to a power plant site in South Dakota. The transporter used is a 14-line Goldhofer THP/DL dual lane loading hydraulic platform trailer with an 18-foot wide deck. The GVW of the combination was permitted at 656,767 pounds and was pulled by a counterweighted 600 hp Kenworth C500 and pushed by a 475 hp KW C500 mounted with a 28-ton capacity hydraulic crane. The combination was 217 feet 11 inches long (with pusher) by 18 feet wide by 18 feet 5 inches loaded height.
