JANUARY CONTEST WINNER
SafeTruck’s first winner of 2012 is Louis Broussard of L3S INC in Lafayette, LA. The January oversize load picture was an oil derrick that he moved from around Dekalb, TX to a location near Buna, TX. The load was 13′ 4″ wide, 13′ tall and 100′ long (overall), and the derrick weighed 55,000 lbs for a total weight of 93,100 lbs. It was hauled on a 2008 Manac stretch float hooked up to a 1997 Volvo with a 13 speed, Detroit Diesel Series 60 (475HP) engine. SafeTruck vinyl oversize banners were attached on the front and back.
Mid-South Truck Equipment in Broussard, LA is where Mr. Broussard purchases his SafeTruck products as well as 99% of his other parts and supplies. Mr. Broussard states, “I find the Ms. Carita SafeTruck banners to be VERY durable and would not use any other brand. I have never lost a Ms. Carita SafeTruck banner from the eyelets giving way nor have any banners ripped. I just discontinued use of two banners whichwere getting faded from 8 years of use … I haul many oversize loads.”
Congratulations Louis Broussard for a successful heavy haul trip utilizing SafeTruck oversize banners and flags!
