Dutch logistic specialist Van der Vlist has taken delivery of two five-axle extendible Manoovr semi low-loaders from heavy-duty trailer builder Nooteboom.
The low-loader will reportedly be used to transport construction machinery weighing up to around 60 tonnes, boasting a ‘technically permissible’ total laden weight of the combination is 92 tonnes.
The low loader features a 800mm wide excavator trough shape to reduce overall height, with a vehicle width of 2.74 metres that can be extended by 3.5 metres.
According to Nooteboom, it also boasts a load floor height of 780mm, suspension stroke of 500mm and 12-tonne axle load at 80 km/h.
‘This new combination was delivered three weeks ago. Nooteboom was well represented with two men for on-site training and instruction,” said Van der Vlist’s Corné de Peinder.
“I was most impressed by the steering of the Manoovr. I have never driven a trailer with steering as good as this and the Manoovr properly tracks the truck. With the Manoovr my job has become so much easier. Nearly every week during the night I transport road planers used for road works. I often have to reverse park in the dark [but] with this trailer it is no problem at all.”
