The Orllati Group, with more than 850 employees, is one of the major players in the construction industry in French-speaking Switzerland, particularly in the cantons of Vaud and Geneva.
To transport its heavy construction machines, the company has reinforced its equipment with a modular low-loader combination of the VarioMAX Plus range from Faymonville. Its strengths are its high payload capacity, its modular versatility and its easy handling.
In addition to a 5-axle and a 3-axle bogie, Orlatti has opted for two variable "Joker" axles that can be installed not only between the gooseneck and the front bogie, but also between the lowbed and the rear bogie.
This unique principle creates maximum flexibility if the load weight or permissible axle loads recommend it.
For the transport of a LR44 drilling machine from the Liebherr production site in Austria to the Orllati site, the Swiss specialists added a Joker axle to create a 4+5 combination.
The transport went off without a hitch and the VarioMAX Plus with excavator deck was convincing as a new heavy-duty vehicle in the Orllati fleet.
