Portuguese demolition firm moves Komatsu excavator 80km on Faymonville low loader
Portugal-based demolition company Costa Almeida has transported a 75-tonne excavator 80 kilometres.
Costa Almeida transported the Komatsu PC490 demolition excavator between job sites in the Lisbon area using a hydraulically steered Faymonville low loader. According to the manufacturer, Costa Almeida uses its 7-axle MultiMAX trailer model to move the specialist high-reach excavator on a regular basis, for a range of demolition projects.
Equipped with a double ramp for easy loading, the model can be extended in length from 12 metres to 20.5 metres thanks to a telescopic central beam. It also features a hydraulic gooseneck and a suspension system that is said to be suitable for rough terrain.
