“Florida’s First Call” – this catchy slogan is emblazoned on the trucks of company De Berardinis Heavy Haul. When special transport jobs are demanded via these incoming calls, the response is often to send out their HighwayMAX trailer.
Located in Orlando, Florida, the company was incorporated in 2007 and was able to find its place on the transport market thanks to hard work, determination and the commitment to providing superior service to every customer. The right transport tool to reach this level is their 9-axle HighwayMAX.
“Our experience with Faymonville has certainly exceeded our expectations. We have received top notch service and support every step of the way from day one and look forward to building an even stronger relationship in the coming years”, declares a totally satisfied Timmy Donohoe, Heavy Transport Manager at De Berardinis heavy haul, about this highway trailer type by Faymonville.
Tracks, vessels, dredges and much more
The HighwayMAX scores with an optimized empty weight which allows to increase the payload capacity up to more than 174,000 lbs at 20,000 lbs per axle. De Berardinis Heavy Haul uses these possibilities to master the most diverse transport jobs.
A brief shortcut of previews missions includes a 138 feet long Sandvik blasthole rig mast over 1,100 miles, a 170,000 lbs dredge and a vessel with the same weight or even a 130,000 lbs crane track from the port of Jacksonville to the site of Cape Canaveral.
The extendable functioning within minutes is also an important fact in their daily work. Pendular axles with a 23.6 inch stroke and a 60° steering angle offers best conditions for an all-terrain use.
Timmy Donohoe confirms and explains: “The maneuverability makes it easy to accomplish over-dimensional moves that otherwise could not be done in tight areas.”
The HighwayMAX includes further high-tech features such as a compensating gooseneck with 5th wheel-load adjustment, an hydraulic axle compensation for increased side stability and a king-pin steering with counter-steered axles. But operators can be sure that all the concept relies on a user-friendly functioning.
De Berardinis Heavy Haul and its Transport Manager Timmy Donohoe live all this successfully in their daily work.
“The ease of operation has given us the ability to focus on training which breeds a safe work atmosphere on all of our job locations.”
