Here was the unloading point for a 38-tonne steel housing that Van Grinsven B.V. transported with its new 3-axle MegaMAX lowbed trailer from Faymonville.
A successful premiere that took the orange-coloured vehicle combination from Croatia via Slovenia, Austria and Germany to the Netherlands. The expectations for the new acquisition were thereby fulfilled. "The new extra-low vesseldeck with removable loading floor gives us many options," reports company director Marco Van Grinsven, and he explains some of the handy advantages: "The radio remote control makes a big difference. It's no longer necessary to step out of the cab in order to operate the gooseneck, suspension and steering if need be. All that takes place at a distance - and that increases safety."
With elongation beams for more options
With a loading length of 12.5 m, the white-wrapped freight only partly exhausted the potential of the lowbed. In combination with the additional elongation beams, the fully extended loading platform can carry goods up to 21.4 m in length. New areas of use open up for Marco Van Grinsven: "Thanks to its versatile features, the Faymonville lowbed has proven to be a genuine enhancement for our vehicle fleet."
Firmly lashed, the steel housing made its way through Europe on the MegaMAX. Safety aspects play an important role in vehicle construction. "Numerous lashing points on the sturdy loading platform keep the load in position," says Marco Van Grinsven. The lowbed with a basic width of 2,750 mm ideally matches the requirement profile of his company, whose core activity, apart from national and international special and heavy-duty transport, is crane rental. With Faymonville, not only the vehicle quality convinces the Dutch company, because Marco Van Grinsven is also taken with the "determined sales advice and after-sales service."
Further lowbeds to follow
Van Grinsven B.V. knows and values what Faymonville has to offer. Another 3-axle lowbed semi-trailer of the MegaMAX series will follow shortly, this time with a basic width of 2,540 mm. And for the toughest transport tasks, the experts have already been relying on their modular CombiMAX kit for several years. In this segment, they just recently added another 5+7 combination to their fleet.
