PSC unveils transporter
By Laura Hatton20 August 2013
Manufacturer of heavy lift and transport products PSC in the USA has launched a new self propelled modular transporter (SPMT), the SPMT 600.
It is 770 mm high and 2.2 m wide and can transport up to 61 tonnes (20 tonnes per axle line). It has pivoting wheel assemblies to allow the trailer to move forward, backward and sideways, a company spokesperson said. The unit can also rotate 360 degrees without changing its mid point.
The trailer is operated by remote control and has a wireless control system, Intellidrive. It can be transported on a standard flatbed trailer.
“The SPMT is a game changer for every plant that needs to move heavy equipment through small entries and within narrow passageways,” said Tommy Morrison, PSC director and senior project manager.
