A press break move in two modes

For its heavy lifting and transport jobs, Transportes Machado from Portugal relies amongst others on its 6-axle modular combination.

These heavy-duty modules are completed by a gooseneck & two propelled axle lines, whose drive system can be used in three different modes: assist mode, trailer mode and self-propelled mode.

Their latest project involved the transportation and installation of a press break, which allowed them to use the trailer’s great versatility.

They first used the trailer mode to tow the combination by truck to the offloading site, where they then uncoupled the tractor and used the self-propelled mode to maneuver the cargo safely to its final destination within the very tight premises.
