Yeah, I know the shear is heaviest. If he's loading it that far back,
that's telling me something down in the belly had to be just as heavy
for him to offset the weight and get some of that shear behind the
trailer axles. The big cylinder looks like a vertical boiler.
Because you sure the hell don't want to load it tail-heavy and unload
the tongue/fifth wheel - or the tail tries to wag the dog.
And in something that big, a fishtail is going to scatter the entire
load across all 8 lanes /real/ fast - I don't care how much chain you
use and how heavy the binders, it ain't gonna be enough.
