The Swiss family business Wipfli has a large reputation with demanding cable drums transports. The items are usually moved through winding mountain villages and over steep roads up to the summit.
The load weight varies from 10t to 100t. Flexibility is the trump card and a basic prerequisite, because Wipfli also transports construction machinery and industrial parts.
Flexible combination for any heavy-duty task
A field as if made for the new CombiMAX from Faymonville in a basic width of 2,850mm, which is now in use by the Swiss customer. Define the task, combine the right vehicle! This is possible with the CombiMAX, which the Swiss put together with foresight.
A 2-axle, 3-axle & 1-axle (Joker) bogie can be combined in various ways and be coupled to the impressive 10x4 tractor unit. This can be installed quickly and easily depending on the payload requirements.
Wipfli gained maximum versatility between the bogies by purchasing two decks. Firstly, a telescopic excavator bridge (7,050 mm + 4,110 mm), which can also be extended in width up to approx. 3,250 mm.
Secondly, the Swiss company decided to get a vessel bridge consisting of a variety of beams with dimensions of 7,000mm, 6,000mm and 4,000mm in order to be able to accommodate cable drums and other freight with variable length and width.
Training from expert to expert
An extremely complete setup, which you will now find on Swiss roads in a wide variety of combinations.
The team around Peter Wipfli jr. received a detailed instruction at the Lentzweiler factory in order to be able to use the material in the best possible way.
Many thanks to Wipfli for the confidence and welcome to the CombiMAX family 😊! We are looking forward to the first pictures in action!
