J. E. Oswalt & Sons, Inc., in South Carolina, USA, has increased the capacity and size of its fleet with the addition of 12 lines of Cometto 1MS hydraulic trailers. The equipment was supplied by Eddy Kitchen at Kitchen's Crane and Equipment. Oswalt can now handle larger loads by coupling the two 6-axle modules in a 12 axle configuration with a lower dead weight and greater overall capacity, Kitchen said.

"These new trailers serve our business plan and future project requirements well", said owners David and Gary Oswalt. With a focus on the South eastern USA, J.E. Oswalt & Sons offers engineered rigging and heavy transport services to East Coast ports, power plants, chemical companies, nuclear facilities and heavy industrial manufacturers throughout the region.

In conjunction with the Charleston Giant, a 500 US ton derrick barge crane co-owned by J.E. Oswalt, the company will further expand its fleet to include a 6 split-axle Cometto platform trailer. "The split-axle trailer, to be delivered in two months, will offer greater capacity, flexibility and stability when used with the 12 axles in a 1½ module configuration", said Kitchen.
