Congratulations to Jimmy Bass….our September 2015 SafeTruck Oversize Load Contest Winner!

Our September winner is Jimmy Bass of Catheys Valley, California. He drives for Kirby Manufacturing, located in Merced, CA. Since 1946, Kirby Manufacturing is the frontrunner in innovation and design for cattle feeding and related equipment because their machines are built from the ground up with the finest material available, total control over the quality of each product is maintained.

The winning pictures are of two Kirby cattle feed mixer hauls. For one haul, Mr. Bass transported an Army truck with a Kirby cattle feed mixer approximately 437 miles from Merced, CA to Bonanza, OR. The gross weight for this haul was 76,000 pounds. The DIMS for the truck and load was 10.5’ wide, 13’ 8” wide and 68’ long.

Mr. Bass used SafeTruck banners and safety flags on both hauls. In fact, he told us, “I only use SafeTruck banners and flags because they last. The other brands do not last or hold up…they tear out at the grommet area. My SafeTruck banners and flags will last up to 1 year on the back and 2 years on the front.” Mr. Bass buys his SafeTruck products at Merced Truck & Trailer.

Congratulations to Jimmy Bass…. and thank you for sharing your successful heavy haul trip utilizing SafeTruck OSL banners and flags!
