Re: How Do You Move a Mast Over the Road

Masts quite a bit longer and heavier are moved around here on full sized PU trucks with heavy racks. Standard building contractor sort mostly, that have a forward cross bar extended over the cab.

Lashed down and with a flag on each end, I'd do the 5 miles no problem.

If you're concerned, have friends in vehicles in front and back, with flashers on.

This is how my 50' heavy spruce spar is moved to storage, down a highway, 5 miles away.
