By Laura Hatton09 March 2015
Specialized transport equipment manufacturer Faymonville is offering a new double-extendible trailer concept called the HighwayMax.
It is an on-road heavy haul trailer designed for the North American market. Payload is 118 tonnes and it has nine hydraulically steered pendulum axles.
The trailer can be retracted to allow a truck trailer length of less than 27 metres, eliminating the need for escorts in most of the United States and Canada, the manufacturer said.
The HighwayMax has a tare weight of approximately 28 tonnes. The axles have a stroke of 600 mm and a maximum steering angle of 60 degrees. In addition, the loading platform can be extended to 25 m. The trailer also has an hydraulic and mechanical 5th wheel load adjustment.
