@plykkegaard Understood. I didn't compute the post is all. It seems like there was more to the sentence but the thought wasn't completed. Because in the ATS ST thread I referenced, the tower parts are much longer than the one on the lowboy we got for 1.39. Not to mention the one on the lowboy now is quite narrow compared to the ones in my link. Those towers are fairly bulky. They should be as wide as the truck or wider. I'd have to say they are undersized honestly but I was trying to keep my mouth shut and not complain, lo. Same with the towers on the ground in this pic https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-WUE9RI5X_Bc/ ... 600/05.jpg. They are way too small.

The towers in the link below, both laying down and standing appear to have more girth than the lowboy in 1.39eb. Unless the Colorado dlc adds the larger sizes with the dlc itself, the current tower part we can access now is undersized.

The 1.39 part sits in the well of a non extended lowboy. In real life, I believe the well opens to about 29'. That tower part is the default length of the well. I would have assumed this tower part goes on an articulated lowboy and mounted sitting over the well so that it can extend the full length of the trailer or at least close to it.

A very interesting video of how wind generators are assembled

https://youtu.be/fI6BMVw_B-Y

each part is assembled from 2 or more smaller pieces easily transported with the available trailers

Yes I see windmill transport sometimes, it is done outside rush hours
It should have taken a screenshot of that sad excuse of a windmill tower
I were excited until I saw the actual load 🤨

Yeah I posted a couple of assembly videos in the Colorado thread I believe.

I was really looking forward to hauling more realistic hh loads with this 49x. 8x4 or not.

Maybe not this size, but something in between could do it

@plykkegaard that in between size can be seen in the three examples in the pic I have here viewtopic.php?p=1256873#p1256873

If they take it out the well and make it go to the rear of the trailer with taller mounts, that is feasible imo. But ST needs to bring longer single portions.
