Hey Hauler Followers! It’s time for another featured transport. This month, we’ve got a great transport, well, actually two loads, coming from Andrew Raucci in our Fort Lauderdale Office.
At first, when the pictures came through, I thought it was the same transport, but alas, It’s two separate ones. The same company worked with Andrew to send two different turbine rotors to two different clients.
What is a turbine rotor? Good question!
A rotor is part of a wind turbine that connects to the generator. This can be a direct connection for a drive turbine or through a shaft and a gearbox--or a series of gears--in the turbine. The rotor speeds up rotation and creates electricity.
Not only did the company need Andrew to ship two turbine rotors, but they needed them shipped from different facilities. So, Andrew needed to coordinate two loads from two different states.
The turbine rotor dimensions are 8ft x 8ft x 21ft. If you’re a heavy haul fanatic, you know that means it’s an oversize load.
The first driver picked up the turbine rotor load in Pensacola, Florida. Because the rotor is so tall, Andrew ensured the driver had a lowboy trailer. Get the high equipment as low as it can go for better clearance. He also ensured the driver had a clean driving record, the proper licensing and insurance, and experience handling oversized loads.
Andrew is always efficient when shipping heavy equipment.
The second driver picked up the turbine rotor freight in Stanton, North Dakota. A lot more rural and a lot more rugged terrain. Andrew took the same steps, making sure the driver had the proper paperwork and experience to take on such a large load. Every driver that comes through Heavy Haulers is vetted to ensure our clients have a safe and quality transport experience.
Most states have different requirements for oversize load transport. Some won’t even let you transport on certain holidays. Not that they had any holidays to worry about. The point is, the proper permits have to be pulled for each state. Andrew took care of the paperwork and permits and even got a crane crew for load assistance.3

Andrew worked with both drivers throughout the entire trip. Quality checks happened. The tarps were re-secured as necessary, and the drivers provided accurate reports for Andrew. This allowed him to provide the client with constant updates so they knew where their equipment was and if it was still on target to be delivered. (954) 234-2861
And both were. Both drivers had a smooth haul. Thanks to Andrew. Making sure that all the proper paperwork was in place, the route was pre-planned, and the team was experienced made this a top-quality turbine rotor shipment.
And, as we understand it, the clients will only be going to Andrew to ship their rotors from now on.
