The latest innovation in Nooteboom’s Manoovr trailer range is a version with an excavator trough. This option is designed to make the semi low-loader even more versatile, especially for the transport of excavators or demolition machinery as the boom arm can be positioned in the trough.
The excavator trough is available as standard on all semi low-loaders of the Manoovr generation that have up to six axles. Other vehicles from the Manoovr generation can have an excavator trough on request.
The width of the excavator trough depends on the width of the vehicle. With a vehicle width of 2,740 millimetres the excavator trough is 800 mm wide and with a trailer that is 2,890 mm wide the excavator trough’s width increases to 950 mm. The Manoovr semi low-loader with excavator trough is available with axle distances of 1,360 mm or 1,510 mm.
Features include the following: floor height 780 mm, 500 mm suspension stroke, 60 degrees steering angle, tyres lasting 300,000 kilometres, and 12 tonnes per axle in Europe.
The results are said to be low tyre costs, low maintenance costs and a high residual value. Combined with aluminium or hydraulic ramps, the Manoovr with excavator trough is described as the ideal multifunctional semi-trailer for machinery transport.
