Fassi drives pylon erection
By Euan Youdale17 April 2012
Eurocargo has received an order for 100 off road electricity pylon transport and erection vehicles, each fitted with a Fassi articulated loader crane.
The 100 four wheel drive ML150E28WRS models are part of a larger order for 640 pylon erection vehicles from EDF. It includes a separate motor that is attached at the boom tip of the Fassi F165XP loader crane boom which powers the pylon hole drilling equipment. The loader crane then drives the pylons into their pre-prepared holes.
The 15 tonne ML150E28WRS comes fully equipped with pylon carrying frame, a teleflow tyre pump system and hydraulic winch. There is also an 11 tonne version.
