What’s 9 ft. tall, 3 ft. wide and weighs 180 lbs.? We’re not talking about the Sasquatch here, but rather the collective dimensions of these three roosters, posted Wednesday on the uShip site needing transport from Hesperia, Calif., to Virginia Beach, Va. The receiver? Well, a little informed guesswork tells me it’s none other than the Pollard’s Chicken restaurant locations opening this year in and around Virginia Beach. Maybe the family that started the small business is making good on their hopes, as addressed in this story (about the first location), to open several new locations. In any case, long-haul hotshotters with some creative tarping and strapping techniques, take heed! No bids yet, as of 10:30 a.m. central, Friday. Bid here.
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
