why would they ship that via roads then?

when I drove around it from the other side it looked like a solid steel box under the bottom of the tarp

What was the name on the van and truck? Was it just a specialty freight company name or something else? I work across from Katolight and I've seen some big *** generators come out of that place, not that long but definately that high.

Does it look like concrete? You can see the bottom of it. If it is three pieces, they appear to have what looks like a ladder on them.
